What are dental crowns (caps)?

Dr. Brian Homann may suggest a dental crown (cap) to treat moderate-to-severe tooth decay or damage. A dental crown is a custom-made, tooth-shaped cover that is placed over a damaged tooth, completely encasing it up the gum line. This will help to restore your smile, so you won’t be afraid to flash your pearly whites. Dental crowns are especially useful for:

  • Holding a broken tooth together
  • Preventing a weakened tooth from breaking
  • Repairing extensive tooth decay and damage
  • Enhancing the natural appearance of your smile
  • Anchoring a dental bridge
  • Completing a dental implant

We offer high-quality dental crowns in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, to restore the shape, function, and appearance of your smile. It’s our goal to make sure you have the besthelp you obtain optimum dental health possible, and to help you keeping your natural teeth for as long as possible.

How are dental crowns (caps) made?

Each dental crown is custom made to perfectly fit the damaged tooth. It generally takes two visits to our dental office to make and apply a dental crown. During your first appointment, we will reshape your tooth, so the dental crown will fit properly, take impressions of the tooth, and send the impressions to a high-tech dental laboratory where your dental crown will be made. We will place a temporary crown over your tooth while waiting for the permanent crown. During your second appointment, Dr. Brian Homann makes sure the dental crown fits properly. He will then cement it into place.

Why do you need dental crowns?

When there are small cavities in a tooth, our dental professionals will typically use fillings to restore the integrity of the tooth. However, when there are larger areas of decay or a portion of the tooth is missing, we may suggest dental crowns to help. It’s our goal to salvage your natural teeth as often as possible, reducing the need for costly replacement options that may not last a lifetime. We will typically recommend a dental crown Iif we feel the use of a dental crown will most ideally maintain the integrity and aesthetics of your tooth, we will typically move forward with this treatment option.

What are the benefits of dental crowns?

Dental crowns can provide you with a number of benefits over extraction of the tooth. While crowns may eventually fail and need to be replaced in the future, they typically last for many years as long as you give them the proper maintenance and continue to see us a dentist regularly. In addition, it is always best to keep your natural teeth as long as you can. Despite advancements in the dental field, a natural tooth is generally the most life-like feeling of all of the options.

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
