He uses the latest in modern dental technology so that his patients can receive high-quality restorations for a more balanced smile. Dr. Stevens works with his patients to understand their specific needs and find the best dental treatment for them.
Dental Crown Q&A
Many patients have multiple common questions about dental crowns and their treatment process:
What are dental crowns made of?
Our dental crowns are made of porcelain ceramic. This means they can easily blend in with your natural smile. Dental crowns that are made of porcelain also reflect light for a more natural-looking end result.
How do tooth fillings compare to dental crowns?
Dental fillings are used after root canal treatment to ensure that a cleaned tooth is sealed. Even if you already have a dental filling, you may require a dental crown. Dental crowns provide more protection to the teeth as well as durability. Crowns not only cover the middle of the tooth but the whole tooth.
What is the dental crown treatment like?
Dr. Stevens will examine your teeth and gums before treatment to make sure that dental crowns are the right option for your specific needs. To begin treatment, he cleans the affected tooth and removes a small amount of enamel so there is enough room for your dental crown. Porcelain dental crowns are crafted using precise impressions of your teeth. Dr. Stevens uses Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing, also known as CAD/CAM. This technology allows him to precisely fabricate crowns so patients can receive their restoration in just one office visit.
