Dental Crowns − Greenville SC

Greenville SC Dentist, Wm. Chad Colson, DMD, FAGD or Jill W. Colson, DMD, FAGD, replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth. Greenville Office Phone Number 864-271-6705“> Greenville Office Phone Number 864-271-6705

Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We can replace existing crowns and “fillings” with new crowns that look and feel like your natural teeth.

When damage to your teeth is extreme, we can use porcelain crowns (lithium disilicate or zirconium oxide) materials) to restore damage teeth to function. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems. Our crowns are tooth-colored, strong, and esthetic.  We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. 

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?

Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, take a digital impression, then fit it with a tooth-colored temporary crown.  The impression is sent to our lab for fabrication of your crown.

On the subsequent visit in about 2 weeks, we will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new, beautiful looking tooth.

Key Benefits of Dental Crowns

  • Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
  • Looks completely natural
  • Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems

What are the capabilities of crowns?

Crowns are a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, decay or wear and tear.  For our crowns, we use either a lithium disilicate material or a zirconium oxide.  Both are tooth-colored, strong, and esthetic.  Dr. Chad Colson and Dr. Jill Colson will discuss which material is better for you.   

Where accidental damage has occurred, teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking–crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth can cause a painful condition called Cracked Tooth Syndrome or CTS. CTS is diagnosed by a series of tests.  Placing crowns on these teeth typically relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. Occasionally, teeth with CTS will need root canal therapy.  In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.

In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. Dr. Jill Colson and Dr. Chad COlson will work with you to decide which treatment is best for you.
