Restore Your Teeth with High-Quality Dental Crowns in Madison WI
At Madison Smile Solutions, we offer state-of-the-art porcelain (all-ceramic) crowns that appear natural and function just like your natural teeth. This is a simple and effective solution to restore the structure and appearance of teeth that have been decayed or have experienced trauma.
These all-ceramic crowns are bonded to the tooth for added strength and longevity and since they don’t have a metal substructure, you won’t have to deal with any black shadows at the gum line.
The process for getting a crown
The traditional method for getting dental crowns involves two different appointments. On your first visit, we’ll make sure the tooth can support a crown, and then start shaping the remaining tooth to accept it.
Once it is properly shaped, we’ll take digital impressions of the surface, as well as the surrounding teeth, to ensure that your crown will fit properly. This information is sent to the lab, and you may be fitted with a temporary crown until the permanent one is completed.
Once the lab is finished, we’ll have you come back in so we can bond the new crown in place.
When do you need a crown?
There are several situations in which we might recommend getting a crown. The most common reasons include:
- A cavity that is too large for a filling
- Strengthening and reinforcing weak teeth
- Restoring teeth that are cracked or worn down
- Replacing particularly discolored teeth
- Completing a root canal procedure
These high-quality crowns are also an important component of dental implants and bridges.
A perfect fit
We use the most recent technologies to ensure that your dental crowns look and fit perfectly in your mouth. We can even have the technology to provide same-day crowns so you don’t have to leave the office with an unwanted gap in your teeth.
Our imaging and milling technology allows us to provide the quality and precision you expect.
Care an maintenance of your crown
The materials we use to mill and bond your crowns have been designed to stand the test of time. They don’t require any special care beyond your normal oral health care. Brush, floss, and rinse just like you normally would, and always pay attention to the area closest to the gums.
Whether you need a cosmetic correction or a serious restoration, these porcelain crowns are a great solution.

Relieve Your Toothache With Same Day Crowns
That sharp tooth pain that just won’t go away can be a sign of something terribly wrong. In most cases, the tooth is chipped or may be infected. Crowns are coverings that go over damaged teeth so they don’t get worse. While traditional crowns are made of gold and silver, today, more and more crowns are being made of ceramic or porcelain. A typical crown requires two office visits. At the first office visit, the color, size, shape and location of the crown is noted and sent to a lab technician who makes the crown. A temporary crown will be placed on the tooth at this time. The second dental office visit, which can be two weeks later, is when the crown is fitted and inserted. Permanent crowns often require multiple follow-up visits.
What are same day crowns?
Same day crowns are ceramic crowns that are manufactured at the dental office using CAD imaging technology called Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) and a ceramic milling machine. This CAD technology was first developed in 1980 at the University of Zurich. It allows us as dentists to build, produce and insert ceramic crowns that same day while you’re still in the office. With increasing technology, same day crowns are quicker to make, have a better look and feel and are more affordable.
The benefits of same day crowns
The biggest benefits of same day crowns is the immediate relief they provide to patients. At Madison Smile Solutions, you don’t have to wait another day suffering with teeth pain or an embarrassing chipped tooth. Our dental professionals use the latest imaging technology so that you are fitted with crowns look and feel natural in only one visit. Same day crowns are of high quality ceramic with accurate color matching so your crown will look like the rest of your teeth. No more guessing the color and redoing crowns. Same day crowns are great for patients with busy schedules who find it difficult to fit in multiple appointments.
Same day crowns have the same quality and precision as traditional crowns. With modern imaging technology and ceramic milling machines, same day crowns are far from the cheap, ill-fitting, discolored crowns you may think of.
