The Benefits

Am I A Good Candidate For Dental Crowns?

If you have one or more damaged teeth, you are a good candidate for dental crowns. Dental crowns are the ideal choice for covering up, protecting, and restoring teeth damaged by serious cavities, tooth infections, and oral injuries. 

Not only do dental crowns protect your oral health, but they have a natural appearance, and will match your existing teeth perfectly. Once you get your crown, you can smile proudly once again.

  • Protect damaged teeth
  • Restore your smile and appearance
  • Prevent future complications

Here’s How It Works


Tooth Prep & Scanning

First, Dr. Austin will prep your tooth by removing some enamel, which provides a solid base for your crown. Then, he’ll take a 3D scan of your mouth.


Building Your Crown

Dr. Austin will attach a temporary crown to your tooth, then send you home. He will send your 3D scans to a dental lab, where your permanent crown will be made. This takes 2-3 weeks.


Final Crown Placement

When your permanent crown is done, you’ll come back to Joshua Austin, DDS & Associates. Dr. Austin will remove your temporary, check the fit of your permanent crown, then bond it in place, completing the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Get Answers About Dental Crowns

What Issues Can A Dental Crown Treat?

Dental crowns are used to repair damaged teeth. They are usually used to restore teeth affected by serious decay, tooth infections, and damage due to dental trauma.

However, dental crowns are also sometimes used for cosmetic purposes if other treatments, such as dental veneers, are not appropriate for the situation.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

A dental crown can easily last 10-15 years or longer with proper care. Crowns are made from very durable porcelain materials, so they hold up well to the wear and tear of chewing and biting.

How Do I Care For My Dental Crown?

The most important thing to do is to maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. You should also eat a “tooth-healthy” diet that’s low in sugar.

Also, make sure that you come to Joshua Austin, DDS & Associates every six months for a teeth cleaning and oral exam. Routine preventive care helps you keep your natural teeth and your crowns in great shape.
