Crowns

At Rochelle Dental, Dr. Angela Lo and Dr. Thomas Viccaro are proud to offer custom made crowns (or caps) that look and feel natural while protecting your teeth. 

Why are crowns a great option?

Severe tooth decay or damage weakens the tooth, making it prone to further fractures and breakage. Crowns, also called caps, are recommended when your teeth need more protection and when a dental filling is not sufficient to restore the tooth. Not only do crowns cover the tooth and help strengthen it, but they are custom made to provide beautiful, esthetic results. They are made to match the color of your own natural teeth. Rochelle Dental is proud to offer Zirconia crowns for enhanced durability, as well as porcelain eMax crowns for enhanced lifelike esthetics and qualities.

What is it like to get a crown?

Once we have determined that a crown is the best treatment option for you, we will schedule two appointments for you. During the first visit, we will prepare the tooth for the crown and take models (known as impressions) of your tooth. It will take approximately two weeks for your custom-made crown to be fabricated. During this time, we will provide a temporary crown to protect your tooth. At the second appointment, your permanent crown will be placed.
