About Dental Crowns
Dental crowns restore and protect damaged teeth while simultaneously improving the appearance of the tooth. Experienced cosmetic dentist Dr. Ronald Konig creates customized tooth crowns that have a natural yet attractive appearance. These crowns do not show unsightly black lines at the gums. Crowns offered at our practice are also durable, long-lasting and stain resistant.

What Are Dental Crowns Used For?
A tooth crown is most often appropriate when a large portion of the surface of the tooth has been damaged, but the tooth root system remains intact and healthy. Dr. Konig may recommend a crown for the following reasons:
- To restore a tooth following root canal treatment
- To restore a tooth with a broken or missing dental filling
- To attach dental bridges
- To cover a dental implant
- To rebuild a tooth with worn edges
- To protect a weak tooth in danger of fracturing
- To restore a tooth that has cracked or broken
- To restore misshapen or discolored teeth
Dental crowns combine outstanding function and durability with excellent aesthetics. Compared to Lumineers®, dental crowns address both cosmetics and function, whereas a veneer is more appropriate for cosmetic flaws alone. Not only does the crown make the tooth stronger, it also improves the appearance of the tooth by way of ideal tooth shape and color.
Advanced Dental Crowns by Dr. Ronald Konig
To begin the restoration process, Dr. Konig takes an impression of the tooth, which is used to design a customized dental crown. While your permanent tooth crown is being fabricated, you will wear a temporary crown so that you can smile confidently in the interim.
Once your crown is completed, you will come back to Dr. Konig's office to have it permanently placed. First, Dr. Konig will ensure proper fit and appearance. Then, he places the dental crown using a special dental cement that bonds the crown to the tooth.
Dr. Konig has extensive experience and training related to dental crown tooth reconstruction. As a result, he is able to provide dental crowns that are beautifully matched to the color of your teeth, so that your smile is not only stronger, but more attractive as well.
