Dental Crowns

A damaged or weakened tooth not only affects the look of your smile. It can also cause pain, soreness, and difficulty chewing.

To relieve discomfort and restore your smile to good health, Drs. Art Carpenter and Sejal Jobalia can provide a custom dental crown.

How can a dental crown restore the wellness of your smile?

Repair Your Tooth for Restored Function & Aesthetics

Protective

After treating your compromised tooth at our practice, serving Evanston, Glenview, and Kenilworth, IL, a dental crown will be placed. Since the crown will cover the entire tooth, it can protect its structure from further damage and decay.

Durable

Dental crowns are designed to withstand normal biting forces and can last over 10 years. However, it is important that you practice proper oral hygiene and attend your bi-annual dental exams.

Realistic

All-porcelain dental crowns can also improve the aesthetics of your smile. These crowns are made of high-quality materials that are matched to your enamel so they blend in with surrounding teeth.

Porcelain Crowns  May Not Be Right for Every Patient

We believe in providing conservative care that preserves as much dental tissue as possible while providing the enhancement you need in order to restore your oral health. If your tooth requires more than a filling, but a dental crown would be excessive, we can provide inlays and onlays. These special restorations are used to replace dental tissue on the chewing surface of molars and, if necessary, replace one or more cusps (the pointed edges of the chewing surface).

Restore Damaged Teeth with Customized, Quality Dental Crowns

A traditional dental crown is a restorative treatment that provides strength and structure to support a tooth that is no longer fully functional. Typically made of durable ceramic or porcelain, a crown, sometimes called a "cap," is often virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. The materials we use offer a translucent quality similar to tooth enamel, and can be artfully matched to blend seamlessly with your smile. 

Our practice has a reputation for excellence in the Kenilworth area. We offer convenient appointments which are scheduled to provide patients with prompt service.

The Procedure

A custom dental crown is made to fully cover a damaged tooth, restoring natural shape, size, and function. The procedure in our office takes place in two appointments. Initially, the tooth is cleaned and disinfected, then altered to allow optimal fit and support for your restoration. We will take highly detailed impressions to create your customized crown. It typically takes about two weeks to complete your restoration, during which time you will wear a temporary. At your second appointment, we will affix your permanent crown. Dr. Carpenter or Dr. Jobalia will ensure proper fit and comfort, and provide guidance to help you obtain log-lasting benefits from your new crown. With proper care, your restoration can last for up to 15 years.

Removing a small amount of enamel can ensure your crown fits properly.

Implant-supported Crowns

Patients with missing teeth may choose to restore their smile with dental implants designed to securely hold a crown. Dental implants are surgically placed in the gums, forming a sturdy base that functions similarly to natural tooth roots. This treatment is an ideal option to replace missing teeth, offering an experience that accurately mimics the comfort and function of natural teeth and prevents bone loss. Dr. Carpenter and Dr. Jobalia create custom crowns for many dental implants patients. Our implant crowns and other restorations are of the highest quality and made to last for decades.

We have been coming to Dr. Carpenter for several years now after seeing dentists that lacked good patient relationships. Dr. Carpenter is patient with those who fear going to the dentist (that's me), explains what needs to be done and provides different options for treatment. Worth the trek from the city!
