Dental Crowns in Holyoke, Ma

Restore and Protect Your Teethcouple hugging and smiling

Damaged or decayed teeth can turn simple tasks such as chewing or eating into difficult, potentially embarrassing situations. Thankfully, dental crowns can help restore your smile. 

At Holyoke Mall Dental, Dr. Eric Chen and our experienced dental team provide dental crowns that will seamlessly blend into your smile, fill any gaps, and rejuvenate your appearance. Our reliable crowns are used in several treatments and are hardly noticeable among your natural teeth.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Also known as dental caps, dental crowns are durable porcelain caps placed on top of your teeth to cover and protect them from further damage. They’re a simple and effective way to treat and restore your teeth after decay, dental treatments, or trauma.

Your crowns will be customized to match your teeth’ exact size and shape to prevent food and bacteria from reaching your enamel. We’ll also ensure your crowns match the shade of your natural teeth to seamlessly blend with your smile.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns have become such a popular and widely used treatment because they offer a host of benefits, including: 

  • Restores functionality
  • Protects tooth’s root
  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Strengthens and preserves teeth
  • Stain-resistant
  • Natural appearance

When Are Dental Crowns Necessary?

Dr. Chen may recommend dental crowns to a patient whose teeth are:

  • Severely decayed
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken
  • Stained or discolored
  • Worn-down or weakened
  • Treated with root canal therapy

However, dental crowns aren’t for everyone. To learn if you’re a candidate for dental crowns, schedule a consultation with Dr. Chen at our Holyoke Office by contacting us at (413) 538-7400.

The Dental Crown Process

The dental crown installation process can vary because we use these restorations in several treatments, such as dental implants and bridges. If one of your teeth is being repaired with a dental crown, we can generally complete this process in just two appointments at our Holyoke office.

First Appointment

The journey to a healthy smile begins with your initial consultation with Dr. Chen. During the appointment, he’ll clean and examine your teeth, as well as treat any underlying oral health conditions if necessary. He’ll determine if dental crowns are right for you and discuss your other options if necessary.

Dr. Chen will take detailed impressions of your teeth to help guide the future shape and size of your personalized crown. He can also fit a temporary crown at this time to protect your tooth from further damage.

Installing Your Crowns

A staff member will contact you to schedule your second visit at our Holyoke office once we’ve received your brand-new crowns from our dental lab. Dr. Chen will perform another thorough cleaning of your mouth before we shape your teeth to fit within the edges of your crowns.

Once we’ve smoothed any edges, Dr. Chen will place your crown atop your shaped tooth. To do this, he’ll use a dental-grade adhesive and allow it to harden. After a short waiting period, you’ll leave our Holyoke office feeling proud and excited to show off your newly restored smile.
