Dental crowns are versatile and effective restorative solutions that play a crucial role in preserving and enhancing damaged teeth. At our dental office, we are pleased to offer dental crowns in Wheaton, IL, through our onsite dental lab, allowing for faster recovery times. 

Understanding Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, also known as teeth caps, are custom-fitted coverings that encase a damaged or weakened tooth. These restorations are meticulously crafted to restore the tooth’s shape, strength, and functionality.


Uses and Indications for Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are recommended for a range of situations, including severe tooth decay, fractures, large fillings and following root canal therapy. Dr. Rebecca Hausten assesses each case individually, considering factors such as the extent of damage, location of the tooth and patient preferences to determine the most appropriate use of dental crowns. 

Materials and Aesthetic Options

Dental crowns are available in various materials, including porcelain, metal, and porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM). The choice of material depends on factors such as durability, aesthetics, and functional requirements. Our dentist and team collaborate with patients to select the most suitable material for their specific needs and preferences. 

The Crown Placement Process

The placement of dental crowns involves a multi-step process, including tooth preparation, impressions, and final crown placement. Dr. Hausten ensures precision in every step, resulting in a well-fitted and natural-looking restoration.
