At All Family Dental, our dentists, Dr. Timm and Dr. Anderson are happy to offer dental crowns for our patients in Oakdale, Minnesota, and the neighboring communities. With our CEREC® same-day dental crowns technology, we can place a dental crown restoration with just one visit at our office.

In addition to covering a damaged tooth or a dental implant, a dental crown can be used to help a tooth’s shape or appearance to look more attractive, as well as keep your bite healthy because it keeps your teeth from shifting (which is possible when teeth are missing).

A dental crown can last anywhere between five to fifteen years, depending on the materials your crown is made of, and how well you care for your oral health. A dental crown may be created from ceramic, porcelain fused to metal, gold alloys or base metal alloys. Taking good care of your crown means staying on top of your oral health, which includes the following:

— Brushing at least twice a day

— Flossing daily at least once (particularly around the crown area where your gums reach the tooth)

— Avoiding hard foods, biting your fingernails and grinding and clenching your teeth

— Keeping up with routine professional dental cleanings and exams

Our state-of-the-art technology can bring back your confident smile in a short amount of time. So, if you have a damaged or missing tooth, Dr. Timm and Dr. Anderson can help! To find out if a dental crown is the right fix for your smile, you can schedule a visit with our All Family Dental team in Oakdale, Minnesota, by calling 651.222.9715 today.
