How do crowns work?

Dr. Haag will place a crown to cover or "cap" a damaged tooth.

Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape, or alignment. At Southwest Nebraska Dental Center, we employ CAD/CAM technology using CEREC to fabricate your crowns directly in our office.

A crown may be recommended for the following cases/issues: 

  • Replace a large filling when there isn't enough tooth remaining 
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing 
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
