What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a restoration used to protect a broken tooth following trauma or decay, to improve the appearance of a tooth, or to replace a lost tooth when used in conjunction with an implant.

Your tooth will be reshaped to make room for the custom crown to be placed over and then secured with dental cement.

Restore a Weakened Tooth with a Durable Crown Benefits of a Dental Crown

Our dentists can help you avoid more costly treatments in the future by reinforcing a tooth with a dental crown. We can also treat a single missing tooth with a dental implant-supported crown. The benefits a crown provides include:

Repair and Protection

Commonly placed over a tooth following a root canal or to repair a broken tooth, a crown protects a tooth from further damage. There is no substitute for your natural teeth. With prompt treatment with a crown, you can avoid the need for extraction.

Longterm Solution

The medical-grade dental porcelain used to craft your custom crown is engineered to withstand years of normal biting forces. With proper care and regular checkups with our Fort Wayne, IN, dentists, a crown from Harrison Dental Group can provide you with a decade of durable service.

Virtually Invisible Results

Harrison Dental Group works with dental labs that have been vetted for providing only the highest quality restorations. The porcelain that is used to create your crown is not only remarkably strong but is designed to mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel so you can enjoy a restoration that blends seamlessly with your surrounding teeth.

Cedric's Story

Cedric had some anxiety about visiting the dentist, so his wife recommended Harrison Dental Group. Cedric's experience was pain-free and positive, and he was relaxed by Dr. Keith J. Harrison's chairside manner and the team's stellar customer service. Thanks to his crown and bridgework, Cedric can smile confidently.

Harrison Dental Group deserves more than "5 Stars"!!!! Dr. Orman, Assistant Maria, Assistant Kim and Dental Hygienist Rene are top of the line in their field. My daughter is on the autism spectrum and they were fantastic with her! From cleaning her teeth to filling her cavities, they were AMAZING! They treated her with kindness and compassion and worked hard to get the job done. It was nothing short of a miracle watching them work on her teeth. We are so fortunate to have Dr. Orman take care of our daughter's dental needs. Great job Harrison Dental Group!!!!

How Are Dental Crowns Placed?

The process of preparing a tooth to accept a crown requires shaping the enamel so that your permanent restoration will blend in with your surrounding teeth.

Dental Crown Treatment Timeline

Your crown will be tailor-made to blend in with your surrounding teeth.
Your crown will be tailor-made to blend in with your surrounding teeth.

Initial Exam

One of our highly-skilled dentists will inspect your teeth to determine the best treatment method to address your individual needs.


Any teeth in need of attention will undergo treatment before being prepared to accept a temporary crown. For a decayed tooth, this generally means a root canal.

Digital Impressions

Using the iTero digital wand, our dentist will take a detailed scan of your teeth to ensure the best possible fit for your new crown.

Temporary Crown Placed

We will supply our dental lab with the digital information needed to create your crown. A temporary crown will be placed while your permanent restoration is being fabricated.

Final Restoration

Once completed, our dentist will place your final porcelain dental crown. Final adjustments will be made to achieve a perfect fit. Once you and your dentist are satisfied, your dental crown will be secured in place with an incredibly strong adhesive.

Restored Form and Function

A permanent dental crown will function, look, and feel just like your natural teeth. Your restored tooth will blend in with your surrounding teeth and will be nearly indistinguishable when you share your smile.

I received the upmost dental care from the Harrison Dental Group on Maplecrest today. I been delaying going to the dentist, doing so contribute to tooth decay and other oral issues. The dental team there made me feel comfortable and at ease with sharing any serious dental issues. The dentist explained how dry mouth could be the culprit behind my tooth decay and cavities. My anxiety made it impossible for me to go to the dentist in the the past. Today I found out that creating a good relationship with my dentist and her team can help me reduce my anxiety, build a long trusting relationship and control all those anxious emotions by being informed.

How to Protect Your New Dental Crown

Now that your temporary crown has been replaced with a permanent crown, you don't want to do anything to compromise the protection it offers. Our crowns are crafted with medical-grade dental porcelain engineered to withstand years of biting forces, but just like your natural tooth, your crown is not indestructible. Keep up these good habits to maintain the durability of your crown:

Take Caution When Eating

Very hard or sticky foods can damage or dislodge a dental crown. Patients can eat and drink virtually anything with a crown but should still be cautious while consuming certain foods, like caramel or taffy.

Continue to Practice Good Dental Hygiene

You can care for your new dental crown just like you care for your natural teeth. Continue to brush your teeth and floss every day to avoid plaque buildup and potential cavities. 

Avoid Abrasive Toothpaste

Since your dental crown is not made with natural enamel, it can be susceptible to erosion from abrasive toothpaste. Choose non-abrasive toothpastes to keep your crown looking shiny and new.

Avoid Bad Habits

Certain bad habits, like biting your nails or opening items with your teeth, can compromise your porcelain crown. If you grind your teeth at night, wear a nightguard to avoid breaking the crown.

Regular Dental Visits

Continue to visit our Fort Wayne, IN, dentists for biannual dental exams. During a regular cleaning, your dentist can make sure the existing crown is holding up and that no new dental concerns have arisen.

Affordable Dental Care
Insurance Accepted and Flexible Financing Available

Every treatment plan we develop at Harrison Dental Group takes into account your budget so that you can afford the treatment you need. Our doctors will review all of your treatment options before moving forward with your procedure so that you can make an educated decision towards your care. To minimize your out-of-pocket expenses, we accept most forms of dental insurance. Our office staff will gladly file all the necessary paperwork with your provider so that you can take full advantage of your benefits.

If you do not have dental insurance, we provide financing options through CareCredit and Citi Health Card. These services allow you to pay for your treatment with an affordable payment plan that fits your budget. For patients that qualify, payment plans include options that offer up to 24 months of interest-free financing. Longer-term plans for up to up to 60 months are available. We will happily answer any financing questions you have during your next visit to our office.
