If you have been experiencing issues with a damaged or decayed tooth, our dentists, Drs. Peter Stanton, Joseph Opack, and David Opack are here to help. St. Paul Family Dentistry offers CEREC® technology to provide same-day dental crowns for our patients in the St. Paul, Minnesota, area seeking a dental restoration. Why might you need a crown for your smile? You might benefit from a crown if you have any of the following:

Cracked Tooth Syndrome: If you have fractures within a tooth and it hurts when you chew on it, a crown can help alleviate the problem. You see, when you chew food it can exert pressure on the fracture lines and create pain. With a crown, the stress on the fractures is distributed evenly, helping to relieve tooth pain.

Dental Filling: If your tooth is fractured or decayed for over half the width of the tooth, a crown will restore the tooth effectively and attractively to avoid further damage to the tooth.

Root Canal: If you have had a root canal procedure done, you will require a crown to prevent the tooth from cracking.

Worn Down Tooth: Grinding or clenching your teeth (bruxism) can cause your teeth to wear down over time, as can acid erosion which erodes tooth enamel.

If you are having problems with a tooth in your smile, our same-day dental crown may be the right solution for you. Whether you need a crown to anchor and attach a dental bridge or complete a dental implant, our dental crowns can help. At St. Paul Family Dentistry in St. Paul, Minnesota, Drs. Peter Stanton, Joseph Opack, and David Opack look forward to helping you maintain your healthy smile. Please call 651.488.5522 today!
