Real Patient Results with Dental Crowns

before dental crowns
after dental crowns
Dental crowns not only restore compromised teeth, but they can also offer incredible cosmetic results for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their smiles. During this cosmetic dentistry case, Dr. Whiteman performed Zoom!® teeth whitening treatment before choosing the shade of this patient's dental crowns. In total, six teeth were treated, and porcelain crowns helped this patient gain a brighter, younger-looking smile.

Dental Crowns Can Solve a Number of Dental Issues

Dr. Whiteman is a very honest and conservative dentist, so he will never recommend a crown unless he believes that you can truly benefit from one. Our same-day crowns can address a number of issues, including:

Damaged Teeth

Crowns can strengthen teeth that have been significantly damaged by trauma or decay. When teeth cannot be repaired with a filling, inlay, or onlay, a crown can provide the necessary coverage. However, it is important to remember that teeth that are not strong enough to support dental crowns may need to be extracted.

Root Canals

If tooth decay has reached the inner portion of your tooth, the resulting infection may require root canal therapy. Following a root canal, Dr. Whiteman will cover the tooth with a crown to protect the remaining tissue.

Cosmetic Concerns

Issues such as discolored teeth, disproportionately sized teeth, and minor gaps can be corrected with dental crowns. Porcelain veneers can also conceal similar aesthetic issues, but may not provide enough coverage for certain cases.

Missing Teeth

Before Dr. Whiteman can place a crown, a certain amount of healthy dental tissue is required for support. If a tooth cannot support a crown, extraction at our dental office serving the greater Boston area may be necessary. In such cases, our dentist can help you replace your tooth with a dental implant-supported crown. Implant-supported crowns stop the jawbone recession that follows tooth loss and don't require modification of adjacent teeth like a dental bridge. Dr. Whiteman has the training and technology needed to place and restore dental implants on-site.

How We Prepare Your Tooth & Place Your Permanent Crown  In One Appointment

Same-Day Crowns What to Expect during Your Visit

A traditional crown involves placing a temporary crown and multiple trips to the dentist's office over the span of several weeks. Thanks to the advanced CEREC system used at our Brookline, MA, office, Dr. Whiteman can skip the temporary crown and eliminate the need for multiple office visits. We also offer various sedation options to keep you comfortable during your procedure.

After preparing the affected tooth or teeth, we will:

We can design, fabricate, and place a permanent crown in a single appointment.

With the help of our intraoral cameras, Dr. Whiteman will take precise 3-D images of your smile. Our digital impressions allow you to avoid the messy impression trays traditionally used to craft dental crowns.


The digital 3-D scans are transferred to the CEREC software system, allowing Dr. Whiteman to design an attractive, natural-looking restoration.

Once Dr. Whiteman is happy with the design of your new crown, the CEREC software sends the final design to our in-office computer-controlled milling machine, which will fabricate your restoration from a single block of porcelain.


While fitting your restoration, Dr. Whiteman will make adjustments to ensure that your crown fits comfortably and appears completely natural.


Once both you and Dr. Whiteman are satisfied with the fit and finish of your crown, the dentist will bond your porcelain crown in place. You will leave your appointment with a fully restored smile. With proper care, your results can last for up to a decade.

My family and I are longtime patients of Dr. Whiteman. He has never met a dental problem of ours that he has not solved, and he is always very thorough in discussing possible solutions/options. Both he and his entire staff are warm, welcoming and thoughtful. I cannot recommend Whiteman Dental too highly.

Protecting Your New Dental Crown

The medical-grade porcelain used to construct a dental crown is extremely durable, but it is not indestructible. Even with the best care, you will eventually need to replace the restoration. However, there are certain guidelines that can help your dental crown last for up to a decade, including:

Be Careful What You Eat

Hard and sticky foods can damage or dislodge a restoration.

Practice Good Dental Hygiene

You can care for your restoration like natural teeth, but it is important to use non-abrasive toothpaste to avoid scratches to the porcelain.

Regular Visits to the Dentist

Maintaining a regular biannual dental exam schedule will help keep your restoration in good shape.

Minimize Daily Wear and Tear

Wearing a nightguard will avoid excessive wear. Habits such as biting your nails or opening packages with your teeth should also be avoided.
