What are Custom Crowns?
Custom crowns restore the structure, strength, and appearance of teeth damaged by decay or wear. Depending on your dental needs and preferences, your custom crown can be made from porcelain, highly durable ceramic or gol.
Your custom crowns are designed to absorb impact. With a custom crown chewing function is fully restored. In most cases, we use tooth-colored materials for our custom crowns to match your smile.
Dr. Sarah Frahm and our dental team are trained to create same-day, custom crowns in our comfortable dental practice. This way, you can have a crown precisely placed in a single visit.

CUSTOM COSMETIC CROWNS IN ONE VISIT
With custom cosmetic crowns, Carmel area dentist Dr. Sarah Frahm can restore oral function and smile appearance in one visit.
If you need a custom made crown , you’re in luck because we use CEREC. It’s the latest in dental technology. With CEREC, you receive a custom crown, made of ceramic to precisely fit and match your tooth.
Using CEREC, we take a digital scan of your tooth or teeth to be crowned. Then, we use CAD/CAM technology to design a crown for each tooth that needs one. With our input, the CEREC machine creates a crown designed to fit your tooth. And, we always match the shade of your teeth. No one will know the difference between your crowned tooth and your natural teeth.
With our single-visit crown placements there is no more waiting. It’s a fast, easier, and more affordable way to crown teeth.
