Dental Crowns in

A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is usually placed over a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. At Waukegan Family Dental, we use custom-made, porcelain crowns for the best function and appearance.

Dental Crowns in Waukegan

A crown can be used to entirely "cap" a badly damaged tooth. In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, the crown can be used to improve appearance, shape and alignment. In the case of a missing tooth, a crown can also be placed on top of a dental implant (which has been surgically placed in the jaw bone) to provide a replacement tooth.

Our custom-made porcelain crowns are matched to the color of your natural teeth. We may recommend a crown for a variety of reasons including:

  • To replace a large filling when there is not enough tooth remaining
  • To protect a weak tooth from damage
  • To restore a fractured tooth
  • To support a dental bridge
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To cover a discolored or misshapen tooth
  • To protect a tooth after root canal treatment

Before your crown can be made, the tooth must be reduced in size so the crown will fit properly. We will then make an impression of the tooth to ensure a restoration that provides perfect fit and function. We will also determine the right color for your crown.

Using the impression, our dental lab will make your crown. In the meantime, we will place a temporary crown. Once your permanent crown is received, we will remove the temporary and cement your crown on the prepared tooth.

An incredible staff and dentist! My procedure was painless and it was so nice to have a doctor who is willing to not only explain what he is doing but also LISTEN to his patient! I will continue coming back to Dr. Saad and to his wonderful staff!

Dr. Saad is great at what he does! I had all four wisdom teeth extracted and he's very gentle and really cares about your pain. The receptionist is very friendly. I recommend this office BIG time.
