Indianapolis Dental Crowns
A dental crown or “cap” is an important tool our dentists use to keep your teeth healthy. Your doctors at Detail Dental can fit one of these tooth-shaped caps over your teeth for a variety of reasons: to help hold a cracked tooth together, to strengthen a tooth that has had a large cavity or root canal, to restore the look of a discolored or misshapen tooth, or to place on top of a dental implant.
Why might you need a dental crown?
- Root canal treatment
What does a dental Crown mean for you?
A dental crown is the prescribed course of treatment when the tooth cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations, as it encases the entire tooth surface to strengthen, protect and restore the tooth structure to its original shape and size.

Same-Day Dental Crowns: Fast, Easy, Beautiful
There are several types of dental crowns, with porcelain or tooth-colored dental crowns being the most popular and ideal choice. Porcelain crown treatments are durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, porcelain dental crowns may eventually require replacement. Dental crowns made of these materials are easily matched to the color of your existing teeth and provide a natural-looking tooth that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your mouth. Your DETAIL DENTAL team in Indianapolis, Indiana custom crafts each porcelain crown to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth, giving you a natural-looking and beautiful smile. Today’s tooth-colored dental crowns are just as strong and durable as traditional gold dental crowns. At DETAIL DENTAL, we can make them here in the office-preventing the need for 2 appointments and those bothersome temporaries.
Sometimes, your dentist at Detail Dental may decide the best course of action is an all-ceramic Inlay or Onlay.
With DETAIL DENTAL’s new Cerec CAD/CAM digital technology, we can often able to save more of your healthy tooth structure by chemically bonding Ceramic Onlays instead of traditional crowns. This helps preserve as much tooth structure as possible, leaving you with a beautiful restoration designed to stand the test of time. Onlays also perfectly match the shade of your other teeth, and we can make them here in the office while you wait.
