Crowns FAQ's

A dental crown is a custom-made restoration that covers the entire visible portion of a tooth above the gumline, resembling the shape and size of a natural tooth. Crowns are used to strengthen and protect weakened or damaged teeth, restore their function, and enhance their appearance.

A dental crown may be recommended to restore a tooth that has been significantly damaged by decay, trauma, or wear, or to strengthen a tooth following root canal therapy. Crowns can also be used to support dental bridges, cover dental implants, or improve the appearance of misshapen or discolored teeth.

Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys (such as gold or silver), and porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) hybrids. Each type of crown has its advantages and disadvantages in terms of durability, aesthetics, and cost, and the choice of material depends on factors such as the location of the tooth, functional requirements, and aesthetic preferences.

The process of getting a dental crown typically requires two dental appointments. During the first appointment, the tooth is prepared, impressions are taken, and a temporary crown is placed. The impressions are sent to a dental laboratory, where the permanent crown is custom-made. At the second appointment, the temporary crown is removed, and the permanent crown is bonded into place.

Dental crowns are designed to be long-lasting and durable, but they may eventually need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear, changes in the surrounding teeth, or recurrent decay. With proper care and maintenance, dental crowns can last for many years before needing to be replaced.

Read Our 5-Star Ratings

We are new patients to the practice and have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Joseph Merritt. Dr. Merritt is currently treating my mom who is 90 years old and helping her with some aging gum and teeth issues. The technology that Dr. MERRITT has introduced us to has been absolutely incredible but with technology comes questions. Dr. MERRITT took the time to explain everything to us, step-by-step and answered each and every question. He took his time and made sure Mom understood what he was recommending and why. I was very impressed with his attention to detail and caring approach to each conversation. We just returned from our second visit and again can report another great experience and the communication with the practice has been excellent. Kim coordinated all the transfer of mom’s dental records within an hour, so our visits have been very thorough. Did I mention the amazing technology? It is worth repeating. I am so relieved my mom is in excellent hands and we will be returning to continue the treatments Dr. MERRITT has recommended.
Dr. Vlass is my dentist even though I drive 1.5 hours to his office. I trust his judgment and he does a terrific job with my teeth. As I am advanced in years, and he has had to deal with some sensitive conditions in my mouth with outstanding results. I highly recommend their practice.
Have you ever thought you would take the time to give a dentist a review...let alone 5 stars? Well, me neither, until now. My business is all about relationships, so I pay attention when someone else values and understands that relationships are everything too. Joey Merritt, not only gets it, he embraces it. His actions and professionalism forced me to leave a dental practice that my entire family was immensely happy with when one emergency issue was treated with immediate concern at the expense of his personal time. Prior to Joey meeting me in a bad moment, the only thing we knew about each other was that my wife played tennis with his mom. What I learned after that about him was more than enough to immediately come home and tell my family that we had a new friend and dentist for life. True story.
I LOVE Dr. Merritt! He's so kind and compassionate. He's an incredible dentist! His staff is also on the same level. I've been going there for years. I first saw Dr. Vlass, then Dr. Merritt when he joined the practice. I can't recommend them enough!!
I feel that the staff listens to my concerns when I call and they try to schedule me as soon as possible. When I am seen I am confident of their care of my teeth and dental concerns. The staff is very professional! I have been seen by Dr Vlass and Dr Merritt and both are very caring and exceptional dentists. This is an outstanding dental practice! I love my dentists!!
