Dental Crowns: Restore Broken, Damaged, or Decayed Teeth in a Single Visit

A broken, decayed, or infected tooth can cause unnecessary pain and discomfort, making your day-to-day life more difficult. 

A dental crown can be used to repair a badly damaged tooth. When attached to a dental implant, a crown can also replace a missing tooth.

At Iroquois Family Dentistry in Nashville, TN, our dentists use the latest technology to help patients enjoy the various benefits of dental crowns...

3 Benefits That Make Crowns a Popular Dental Treatment

Fully Repair a Tooth

Crowns cover the entire visible surface of a tooth, from the gum line to the cusp. A crown can protect a broken or decayed tooth from further damage, and in many cases, can prevent the need for a tooth extraction. If tooth loss has already occurred, a dental implant-supported crown can be placed.

Same-Day Placement

Our Nashville, TN, dental practice is equipped with its own CEREC® computer-aided design and manufacturing unit. This advanced type of dental technology eliminates the need for multiple appointments and temporary crowns, allowing us to create and place custom permanent crowns in just one visit.

Natural-Looking Results

Same-day dental crowns are made from a single block of high-quality dental porcelain that closely mimics the color, shine, and texture of a natural tooth. Our dentists will plan around your surrounding teeth and facial aesthetics to create permanent crowns that blend in seamlessly with your smile.

Had to get a crown and also get a cavity filled. Dr. Parkes was great! Made it as painless as possible and called me that evening to see how I was doing. I’ve never gotten a call from a dentist to see if I was doing ok! Thank you so much!

Do You Need a Dental Crown?

Crowns can treat a wide range of functional and cosmetic concerns. Our Nashville, TN, dentists may recommend a crown if you have:

A significantly weakened or damaged tooth structure

Cracks in a tooth that do not extend below the gum line

Dental infection, in which case a crown will be the last step of root canal therapy

Significant dental erosion that affects the force of your bite

Cosmetic blemishes such as an irregular shape or internally discolored tooth

A missing tooth, in which case we would attach a crown to an implant

If a crown is not the best option for your needs, our team can also use CEREC technology to craft personalized dental bridges and porcelain veneers.

Why Visit Our Nashville, TN, Office for Dental Crown Treatment?

Many patients with dental issues are worried about needing a crown because they fear a lengthy or involved procedure. Traditionally, the dental crown procedure requires two appointments. But thanks to our CEREC technology, we are able to offer speed, convenience, and precision

With this advanced system, our Nashville, TN, team can provide same-day restorations, including both traditional and implant-supported dental crowns. There is no need for temporary crowns or multiple visits. Even if you need a root canal or other preparatory procedures, your entire treatment can often be completed in one appointment.

Because we use CEREC, we can also offer benefits such as:

  • Customized results: CEREC gives our team complete control over the entire treatment process, and we can adjust your crown until it is a near-perfect fit.
  • Natural appearance: IPS e.max is slightly translucent, just like your dental enamel, and comes in a wide array of shades. This means the shine and color of the material can match the rest of your smile.
  • Efficiency: The CEREC system is incredibly fast, so we can create and attach your crown in a single appointment.
  • Convenience: With faster treatment, you will not have to deal with the inconvenience of a temporary crown or repeated trips to our office.

We Use the Latest Materials to Ensure Long-Lasting, Natural-Looking Results

Thanks to the precise, digital technology of CEREC, our dentists can create dental crowns that are virtually identical to natural teeth. In addition, our crowns are made from IPS e.max®. This advanced form of porcelain is very durable, and it provides a realistic appearance unrivaled by many other restorative materials including resin, gold, and silver.

Although composite resin can be carefully matched to the color of your teeth, it does not offer the same longevity as porcelain. After you receive your crown from our Nashville team, you can enjoy a highly aesthetic and fully functioning smile for many years. Our crowns are preferred for several reasons:

What to Expect during Your Dental Appointment


To begin, we will perform an exam to evaluate your overall oral health and conduct imaging using digital x-rays. Some patients might require preliminary treatment, such as periodontal care. One of our dentists will then examine your tooth and determine whether a dental crown is the most fitting solution.


After removing any decay, we will prepare your tooth using conservative techniques and advanced technology to limit your discomfort. By altering the shape of your tooth, we can make room for the restoration and ensure a more stable foundation. This step can also ensure a stronger bond for the crown when it is finished.

Digital Impressions

After gently modifying your tooth to provide a solid base, your practitioner will use our CEREC system to take digital impressions. The CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) software will produce 3-D images that will be far more accurate than traditional manual models.

Design & Fabrication

Using these images, one of our dentists will design your crown to replicate your natural tooth, improve your oral health, and complement your bite. Once it is complete, this information will upload to our in-office milling machine. In less than an hour, the system will carve your restoration, typically from a solid piece of IPS e.max porcelain.


Once your custom crown is finished, your dentist will double-check the fit and appearance. If you are both happy with the results, they can securely attach the cap to your tooth. Thanks to our in-office technology, you won't need a temporary crown or multiple office visits to complete your treatment.
