Dental Crowns

at its best!

If you are looking to straighten your teeth with clear or accelerated braces. Metro Smiles is here to help.


Dental Crowns

A dental crown or cap fits over a tooth to give it more strength, while giving it the shape of a natural tooth. Crowns can be a great way to repair teeth that have been broken or that must be reinforced after other dental healing treatment to remove tooth decay or disease. They can also be used to improve appearance and to keep a dental bridge or denture firmly in place. With proper care and hygiene, crowns can look natural and last for many years.

Dental Crowns

At Metro Smiles, we help you choose the type of crown that best corresponds to your needs and your budget. Metal alloy, porcelain, and porcelain bonded to metal are just some of the options. Your Metro Smiles dentist will then prepare the tooth to give it the optimal shape to receive a dental crown, before making a mold (an “impression”) of your tooth and your “bite”. The mold and information on the shade of tooth color is then given to a dental technician to create the crown for fitting.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Respons

Here at Metro Smiles, we have always prioritized putting patients and employee well being first. We all share the concerns about the ongoing precautions of COVID-19 and are taking all precautions recommended by ADA, CDC, and Illinois Dental Society to maintain a safe environment for our patients and staff.

Our primary concern has always been the safety of our patients, staff and community. Following the recommendations by the ADA, CDC, Illinois Dental Society and the State of Illinois, we have decided to temporary close our offices to help limit the spread of the virus.

We greatly apologized for any inconvenience caused by this decision.
