A dental crown is a restorative element for correcting teeth that are broken, chipped, or decayed. A crown is a cap made of durable materials that covers the surface of your deformed or damaged tooth, returning it to its natural size and shape.
The team at Serenity Laser Dental PC creates your crown from long-lasting, natural-looking materials, such as porcelain. Made using advanced texture and color-matching technologies, your crown is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Crowns can strengthen and protect your tooth from decay or further damage, keeping your smile healthy for many years to come.

If you need a dental restoration, the team at Serenity Laser Dental PC helps you explore all your options, including getting a new dental crown.
When you get a crown, it typically takes about two visits. During the first visit, the team prepares your natural tooth by cleaning, removing any decay, and placing fillings. They may file or reshape the tooth so the crown will fit securely.
Once your natural tooth is ready, they take digital impressions of your mouth and place a temporary crown. You can eat and drink normally while a special dental lab creates your dental restoration.
During your second visit, the team removes the temporary crown, cleans your teeth, and places your permanent crown. The team ensures your new crown fits perfectly with your natural teeth.
