A damaged tooth can make biting and chewing painful. However, a filling, inlay, or onlay may not be enough to fix the problem.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that protect compromised teeth and can also be used with dental implants to replace lost teeth.

A damaged, decayed, or missing tooth can be painful, but you don't have to live with this discomfort. Contact us today to request an appointment and we can determine if a crown will help relieve your pain and restore your oral function.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a protective cap that is placed onto a tooth. The cap prevents further harm to a tooth while restoring its strength, function, and appearance. Crowns can also be attached to dental implants in order to replace a lost tooth.
Crowns can be made from all kinds of materials. When possible, Dr. N. Summer Lerch uses tooth-colored materials that resemble the patient's natural teeth. Thanks to porcelain crowns, you'll be able to smile with renewed confidence and restored dental health.

The Dental Crown Procedure
Our porcelain crowns are carefully crafted to resemble your natural teeth.
Does Dental Crown Placement Hurt?
No. Before your tooth is prepped, your dentist will numb the area to ensure you are completely comfortable during treatment. If at any point you feel any discomfort, let your dentist know so she can address the issue promptly. We want you to leave our office happy and be as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment.
Our New Haven dental practice works with a lab based in Salt Lake City, UT. We love the restorations they make and feel their work merges the function of restorative dentistry with the aesthetics of cosmetic dentistry. The finished results are strong and natural-looking.
Different types of materials can be used to create a custom crown, including standard porcelain and premium materials such as zirconia and IPS e.max®.
As our patient, you can expect beautiful and natural-looking results whether you're getting dental crowns for your front teeth or your molars.
