When teeth become decayed or severely damaged, it is the job of Dr. Holinbeck and her team at Bionica Dental Wellness to try and preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible. Unfortunately, when the problem is too serious, it requires more complex treatment. With the help of dental crowns, we can remove the decayed or damaged areas and create a custom-made, metal-free restoration that is high in quality, durable, and long-lasting. Helping patients achieve fully-functional smiles for decades, dental crowns are a tried-and-true restorative solution.

Dental crowns are some of the most common restorative treatments available. When dentists recommend these particular solutions, it is typically because you are experiencing one of the following problems:
At Bionica Dental Wellness, our team will ensure you receive an all-ceramic dental crown that is free of metal and blends in beautifully with the rest of your smile.
The benefits of dental crowns cannot be overlooked. Used for decades to repair broken and decayed teeth, these restorations are known for their strength, durability, and now, their natural appearance. Although they were once made of silver or gold, more and more dental professionals are turning to alternative options that are more natural in appearance and completely non-toxic.
With dental crowns from Bionica Dental Wellness, you can expect:
When receiving a dental crown from Dr. Holinbeck or another member of our team, you will first schedule a consultation. It is during this visit that we will examine your oral cavity and determine if the tooth in question needs this type of restorative care. If so, we will begin by administering local anesthesia to numb the tooth and the area around it. Once you are completely comfortable, we will gently clean and remove any decayed or damaged areas of the tooth structure, being mindful to avoid harming any healthy areas of the tooth.
We will then fill the tooth to create a tight seal to prevent future reinfection or damage. Once this solution hardens, we will prep the tooth and take impressions that will be used to create the customized dental crown. In our dental office, we are pleased to provide a quicker option for receiving a dental crown. With the help of CEREC technology, you can receive your desired restoration the same day you arrive for your procedure. This allows for greater convenience and exceptionally happy patients.
It is also possible, should you prefer, to wait and receive your customized crown within a few weeks. This will allow your tooth to heal before having your finalized restoration put into place.
After everything is secured, you’ll return home to begin enjoying your new smile. But there are a few helpful tips that can make taking care of your dental crown much easier, such as:
Within a few days, you should be feeling much better; however, if you begin to experience any problems or complications, make sure to contact our office as soon as possible.
