A broken or decayed tooth can cause pain, difficulty eating and speaking, and feelings of self-consciousness.
A custom-designed dental crown from Czaplicki Family Dentistry in Milwaukee, WI, can restore the form and function of your tooth.
Why do patients choose dental crowns?
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are single-tooth restorations that restore the look and function of your smile. At Czaplicki Family Dentistry in Milwaukee, WI, we use only the highest-quality crowns to:
- Protect teeth that have been damaged or weakened.
- Restore individual missing teeth.
Our dentists, Drs. Don and Cathleen Czaplicki, offer all-porcelain crowns that mimic the appearance of natural teeth. In some cases, we are able to create and place customized crowns in just one appointment.

What Can Crowns Solve? a Number of Dental Issues
Decay and Trauma
A tooth with significant damage due to decay or trauma can be strengthened by a dental crown when a filling, inlay, or onlay cannot provide the necessary coverage.
When decay reaches the inner portion of a tooth, root canal therapy is required to avoid extraction. After cleaning out the inner tissues of the tooth, our dentists place a crown to protect the remaining tooth structure.
An implant-supported crown can replace a single missing tooth. Not only do dental implants provide a strong base for crowns, but they also prevent the jawbone atrophy that follows tooth loss.
Types of Dental Crowns
A traditional crown may be used after a tooth has suffered extensive decay beyond the point of being able to be treated with a filling, or after it has been weakened from root canal therapy. A crown can also address a discolored natural tooth that does not respond to professional teeth whitening treatment.
A dental implant is a titanium or ceramic post that is surgically embedded in the jaw to provide a stable foundation for a dental restoration. Dental implants provide a number of advantages, including unmatched security for dental crowns.
Used to literally bridge the gap left by multiple missing, a dental bridge is held in place by adjacent healthy teeth that have been fitted with specialized crowns. These crowns are designed with fixtures that securely hold the dental bridge in place.

Same-Day Crowns Unbeatable Convenience
Placing a crown using traditional methods generally requires multiple office visits. The initial visit involves taking impressions of your bite and the placement of a temporary crown. Then, a dental laboratory takes a few weeks to craft your permanent dental restoration. Once ready, you return to the dentist in order to remove the temporary crown and have your permanent restoration placed.
The advanced CEREC® system used at our Milwaukee, WI, dental office means you can skip the awkward temporary crown and a second appointment. Our dentists can create and place a crown in a single visit with our advanced CEREC machine, which precisely manufactures a custom-designed crown out of durable, lifelike porcelain in less than an hour. This saves you time and the hassle of dealing with a temporary crown, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of your restored tooth immediately.
