Dental Crowns in High Point, NC


A dental crown does pretty much exactly what it says: it crowns the base of another tooth, creating a protective and natural looking cover for that tooth. Crowns are prosthetic teeth, made of either gold alloy, zirconia, porcelain or a combination of materials.  They are designed to last a very long time. When your dentist recommends a crown, it is probably to correct one of these conditions:

  • To strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to hold the filling
  • To create a protective cover for the part of a tooth remaining from a root canal
  • To protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken
  • To place on a dental implant, which we will explain later, under that heading

Here are a few more reasons crowns are desired by our patients, which are more cosmetic or useful in nature:

  • 1

    To replace missing teeth

  • 2

    To cover or hide misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth

  • 3

    To create a completely natural, near-perfect smile

  • 4

    To address chewing problems

  • 5

    To correct problems caused from accidents, disease or wear and tear


Whatever the cause or need for your crown may be, Dr. Hartzell can advise you of the best course of action and perform the creation and placement of your crown, professionally and efficiently.
