Dental Crowns

Tooth damage, decay, and infection can be extremely painful and may even lead to the loss of the tooth if left untreated.

Drs. David C. Henderson and Laura Katherine Henderson Jones can relieve oral discomfort and restore your tooth with a dental crown.

Why trust our Carthage, MS, dental practice with your crown?

So What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a custom-made cap placed over a weakened tooth to protect its structure from future harm. Our dental crowns are crafted from porcelain and are carefully designed to fit snugly over the surface of your tooth. With proper care and good dental hygiene, your restoration can last well over a decade before needing replacement.

Patients are often unsure whether or not they need a dental crown...

When to See the Dentist

The only way to know for sure if you need a crown is to visit the dentist for an exam. Most of the time, patients learn they need treatment after we diagnose a dental condition during a routine check-up. However, you may notice abnormal symptoms on your own that could indicate the need for a dental crown.

Ask yourself the following:
 

  • Does my tooth look discolored?
  • Am I experiencing pain when chewing?
  • Are my teeth sensitive to hot and cold temperatures?
  • Is my tooth structurally damaged with a visible crack or fracture? 


If you answered yes to any of these questions, it's time to schedule an appointment with the dentist.

Tell Me More about Implant-Supported Crowns...

Dental implants are one of the best solutions in modern restorative dentistry for patients with tooth loss. We can restore any number of missing teeth by capping the implants with a custom-made restoration. If you are missing a single tooth, an implant-supported crown will repair the visible gap in your smile as well as protect you from oral health problems like jawbone recession. Ask our dentists if you are a candidate for dental implants during your next appointment at our Carthage office. 

A Closer Look at the Crown Procedure

Our streamlined dental crown procedure is designed to be convenient and provide stunning results. Patients will not be able to tell their crown apart from their natural teeth while speaking, chewing, and smiling. 

Your Dental Crown Treatment Timeline

Our patients throughout the Jackson, Philadelphia, and Carthage, MS, communities have the option of receiving a same-day crown. Here is what you can expect during the procedure...

Wait comfortably in the office and your crown will be ready in about an hour.

Consultation

We begin with an oral examination to determine whether you are in need of a dental crown. If we detect a problem, we may take x-rays for a more precise diagnosis. Your dentist will then tell you about your treatment options and schedule your procedure.

Tooth Prep

We will prepare your tooth by removing decay and infection, which may require a root canal. In that case, bacteria and debris are removed from the inner chamber and the tooth is sterilized. 

Design

Next, we reshape your natural tooth to make room for the dental crown. Referencing your x-rays and digital impressions, we will design the restoration to fit the exact specifications of your tooth. The blueprints are then sent to our in-house CEREC milling machine for carving.

Production

The CEREC machine precisely carves each restoration from a solid block of porcelain ceramic. Since the process typically takes under an hour, there is no need for us to place a temporary crown, or for you to come back for multiple visits. Wait comfortably in the office and your crown will be ready before you know it.

Placement

We will check to make sure the permanent crown fits well and the ceramic matches the color of your smile. Once we are satisfied, we will bond the restoration in place with special dental cement. Afterward, your treatment is complete in just a fraction of the time it would take with traditional methods. 
"Had a root canal Monday, I never felt a thing. And all of the staff were so pleasant. Dr. Henderson and Dr. Jones are by far the best dentists I have ever visited. I will use them from now on and I suggest you do as well!" Jay Weaver

Why Choose CEREC?

As many patients know, getting a dental crown was not always as simple as we make it seem. Traditionally, patients would wear a temporary crown for a few weeks while their permanent crown was made at an off-site dental lab. Temporary crowns are known to be less stable and are much more likely to fall off and leave your tooth exposed.

Now, with CEREC technology, we can start and finish your treatment in one office visit, making temporary crowns and lengthy waiting periods a thing of the past.  Best of all, same-day restorations do not compromise on quality.
