How Dental Crowns Work Protecting and Restoring a Tooth
Dental crowns are placed on top of natural teeth that have been affected by damage or decay. The crowns cover these compromised teeth completely to provide protection and restore their strength. Porcelain and tooth-colored materials are used so that a dental crown resembles a natural tooth.
Dental crowns can be used on a single tooth or several teeth for a variety of reasons:
Intrinsic Tooth DiscolorationA tooth that is intrinsically discolored cannot be treated with teeth whitening. Instead, a porcelain crown can be used to cap the discolored tooth. Porcelain crowns are common in cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Root Canal TherapyRoot canal therapy removes infected dental pulp, preventing the spread of inflammation and the need for tooth extraction. A crown is used to cap the treated tooth and restore a patient's biting and chewing ability.
The Latest Restoration Materials Metal-Free Dentist
While all dental crowns serve the same purpose, not all crowns are alike. Dr. Bixby is committed to excellence in dentistry and uses high-quality tooth-colored materials, such as zirconia, e-max, and porcelain. This is consistent with his commitment to metal-free dentistry, which solves oral health problems and improves the look of the smile.

The Dental Crown Procedure
Replace a Missing Tooth Crowns As Implant Restorations
After the implant has fused with the tissue of the dental arch (a process known as osseointegration), it is stable enough to support a durable crown made of tooth-colored porcelain.
Custom implant restorations are indistinguishable from a natural tooth, and modern materials allow patients to bite, chew, and smile with total confidence.
"Dr. Bixby is amazing! I came to him to restore my implant. He was so kind as to explain each step of the process to me and answered any questions I had, and really took his time during my visits. He is so gentle--HE GAVE THE BEST LOCAL ANESTHESIA OF MY LIFE!!! I barely felt the pinch of the needle! And best of all, my crowns look amazing. You can’t even tell which tooth is an implant! I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Bixby. He and his assistants are awesome, and I can’t recommend them enough!" Aja H - 5 Star Review - Google
