Crowns

Severe tooth decay, failing large fillings, cracks, and extreme wear are all indications for a dental crown. When the structural integrity of a tooth can not be restored with a filling, Dr. Lattner will recommend a crown.

If you need a crown on a front tooth, where aesthetics are important, or a back tooth that experiences very heavy chewing forces, Dr. Lattner may recommend a crown fabricated by a dental laboratory. She will discuss with you the best material options for your teeth.

When crowns are fabricated by a dental laboratory, you will need two dental appointments. First, Dr. Lattner will prepare your tooth, take impressions, and place a temporary crown while the lab fabricates your permanent crown. At your second appointment, Dr. Lattner will place your final restoration.
