Dental Crowns Boise and Eagle

What is a Dental Crown?

A crown (often called a cap) is a type of restoration that completely caps or covers the tooth and restores it to its original shape and size.

  • Crowns are very strong due to the fact that they are created in a laboratory.
  • Crowns protect and strengthen the remaining tooth structure.
  • Crowns improve tooth appearance
  • Crowns are permanent and perform like a natural tooth.
  • When placed before a tooth is so decayed that it might fracture, a crown can often help prevent the expense of a root canal in the future.

Our Crown Process

Dr. Bauter and his team utilize Planmeca E4D scanning technology to create a 3D model of the tooth. This technology is more accurate than impressions and is much more comfortable for patients. The E4D method eliminates the gaging response that many patients experience with the traditional impression method.  

Dr. Bauter then begins preparing the tooth for the permanent crown. Meanwhile, our highly trained technicians are meticulously creating a custom crown. After all decay is removed and the tooth is prepared, Dr. Bauter places the Crown.  Our crown process is efficient, accurate and focused on making our patients as comfortable as possible.

  • Temporary Crowns Required- Often times the temporary crown doesn’t fit well.
  • External Crown Laboratory- Impression can break or fit poorly.
