Dental Crowns

A decayed or broken tooth can cause daily discomfort and make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.

A dental crown is a life-like restoration that can repair your affected tooth, improving your oral health and comfort.

Dr. Vernon Greene can place natural-looking, durable dental crowns at his Stockbridge, GA, practice to restore your smile.

Restore a Healthy, Beautiful Smile Dental Crowns Create Natural-Looking Results

We create our crowns with high-quality porcelain that can be perfectly matched to your surrounding teeth to give you a seamless smile. There are several additional benefits to dental crowns, including:

Improved Oral Health

Our dentists can place a dental crown over a treated tooth to protect it against further damage. Often, receiving a crown can prevent the need for future tooth extraction.

Restored Function

Our dental crowns are crafted from high-quality porcelain that will look and function like your natural tooth. You will be able to bite and chew with ease and comfort once your crown is placed.

Increased Durability

Bite, chew, and smile with confidence: our dental-grade porcelain can withstand the forces of daily wear and tear. When cared for properly, they can last 10 years or more.

Enhanced Confidence

Our cosmetic dentists can design beautiful, realistic crowns that enhance the appearance of your smile. Once the damaged or decaying tooth has been treated, you will have a flawless smile you'll be proud to show off.

Determining Your Candidacy Are Dental Crowns the Right Treatment for You?

Most patients with a damaged or decaying tooth make good dental crown candidates. Our dentists will determine your candidacy during your consultation at our Stockbridge office, which serves communities throughout Greater Atlanta. During your consultation, our dentists will assess your:

Dental Tissue

Your affected tooth must have sufficient healthy tissue to receive this dentistry treatment. Our dentists may recommend extraction if your natural tooth has sustained too much damage to support a crown.

Periodontal Health

Dental crowns rest on top of the gums as well as dental tissue. Periodontal disease or infections affecting your gumline may need to be treated before our dentists can place your permanent crown.

Oral Aesthetics

A crown can address the aesthetic flaws of a natural tooth. A crown can cover deep staining that cannot be corrected with teeth whitening or a misshapen tooth that doesn't blend with your neighboring teeth.

Are You Ready to Heal Your Smile? Contact Our Stockbridge Practice

Dr. Greene with patient

The dentists at our privately owned dentistry practice truly care about our patient's oral health needs and goals. They take the time to get to know you so they can discuss the best treatment options without you ever feeling rushed.

Our dental practice focuses on our patients, not our profits, and we will never recommend a treatment unless we think it is absolutely necessary to help meet your goals. 

While dental fillings, inlays, and onlays can treat minor cavities and trauma, they are often insufficient to address more significant issues. In these cases, our dentists may recommend dental crowns to provide comprehensive support and prevent further damage.

Missing a Tooth? You May Still be a Good Dental Crown Candidate

Thanks to dental implants, even patients with missing teeth can make good dental crown candidates.

In the past, the only option for a single missing tooth was a traditional bridge. While effective and affordable, bridges cannot offer the same level of stability and oral health benefits provided by an implant-supported crown. Additionally, bridge placement requires our dentist to alter the teeth on either side of the gap in your smile.

With dental implants, we can maintain the structure of your surrounding teeth by replacing your missing tooth with an implant-supported crown. Patients must have sufficient jawbone density to support dental crown placement; our dentists can determine your candidacy for dental implants during your consultation at our Stockbridge office.

Dental Implant Benefits Why an Implant-Supported Crown is a Strong Solution

Dental implants are typically the preferred solution for patients missing a single tooth and for patients who need their natural tooth extracted. Our dentists recommend implants because they:

Provide Stability

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone. Once fused with the jawbone during a process called osseointegration, your dental implants stay secure and provide unparalleled stability for your restoration.

Prevent Jawbone Atrophy

Your natural tooth's roots maintain jawbone density and prevent atrophy. A dental implant functions like your tooth roots to continue jawbone stimulation and prevent deterioration. 

Last a Lifetime

While your dental crown may need replacing after about 10 years, your dental implant will last a lifetime. After surgical placement, your dental implant becomes a permanent fixture in your mouth and continually provides a sturdy base for your dental restorations.

Once a dental implant is placed, our dentists can attach a custom dental crown to restore the appearance and function of your smile.

Traditional Crown Placement Minimally Invasive and Highly Effective

Your damaged tooth will be reshaped to make room for the dental crown without affecting your surrounding teeth. A customized porcelain crown is then placed over your natural tooth and secured with dental cement. With proper care, your new porcelain restoration can last for 10 years or longer.

Receiving a Dental Crown  Typically Takes Two Visits

While an implant-supported crown can take several appointments for surgery and healing, a traditional crown can typically be placed in just two visits to our Stockbridge, GA, office.
After dental crown placement, you will have a healthy, seamless smile that can last for years.
After dental crown placement, you will have a healthy, seamless smile that can last for years.


Requesting a consultation at our Stockbridge practice is the first step in receiving a dental crown. Our dentists will assess your oral health to determine if another procedure like a root canal or periodontal treatment should be performed before crown placement.

Tooth Preparation

First, our dentist will remove the damaged or decayed portions of the tooth. They may also reshape the remaining tooth structure to ensure the restoration looks natural.


Next, we will take an impression of your smile which we can use as the basis for your crown. Instead of traditional putty impressions, patients may be able to receive digital impressions using CEREC technology that captures precise images of your oral structures. 

Temporary Crown

Our dentist may place a temporary crown to protect your prepared tooth while you wait for your restoration.


Once your impressions are taken and your temporary crown is placed, we will send your details to our trusted lab to create your crown. Fabrication typically takes between one to two weeks. Your temporary crown can function like your natural tooth during this period.

Final Placement

Once your restoration is ready, you will return to our office so our dentist can replace your temporary crown for your permanent restoration. They can also make adjustments at that time to ensure it fits properly and looks natural.

Dental Crowns Require No Downtime


Restoring a tooth with a dental crown requires no recovery time. Many patients can return to their normal routine immediately after placement. Mild sensitivity is a normal side effect and should subside within a few days. Contact our Stockbridge practice if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort a week after treatment.

Maintain Oral Hygiene

Just like your natural teeth, your dental crown needs to be kept clean to prevent bacteria and plaque buildup that can lead to decay and gum disease. You should brush your teeth twice daily, floss once daily, and visit our Stockbridge office twice a year for regular cleanings.

Avoid Bad Habits

While the porcelain used to make your crowns is extremely durable, it is not indestructible. Just like your natural teeth, your dental crown can be chipped or cracked. It is best to avoid bad habits like biting your nails, chewing on ice, or opening packaging with your teeth.

Address Teeth Grinding

Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can wear down your new restoration just as it can your natural teeth. Speak with our dentists if you suffer from bruxism. They can fit you with an oral appliance to wear at night to help protect your teeth and your dental crown from becoming worn or damaged. 

Prompt Treatment Can Protect Your Smile and Budget

When left untreated, a decaying or damaged tooth can lead to more extensive and costly treatment in the future. By seeing our Stockbridge dentists early, we can quickly address the affected tooth before the damage or decay causes more painful and expensive problems. Contact our dentistry practice as soon as your tooth is damaged or you notice any signs of decay.

Dental Crown FAQ

Is dental crown placement painful?

Our dentists use a local anesthetic to numb the area so you will not feel any pain during treatment. Many patients feel relieved when the pain from their damaged or decaying tooth is finally eased.

How can I manage side effects after treatment?

You should be in very little pain following crown placement. Mild discomfort is normal the first few days and can be managed with over-the-counter medication and ice packs.

Can dental crowns be placed on my front teeth?

Yes! Unlike metal crowns, our customized porcelain crowns can be designed to perfectly match your surrounding teeth. People will notice nothing but a beautiful smile after treatment.

Can your tooth rot under your crown?

Unfortunately, yes. It is important to treat any decay before placement and to maintain good oral hygiene habits after treatment to prevent your natural tooth from getting damaged by bacteria.

How long will a dental crown last?

With proper care and maintenance, a dental crown can last for up to 15 years or more. However, it is important to remember that the porcelain will wear over time and will eventually need to be replaced.
