Patient Testimonials
  • Azalea Dental is, without a doubt, the best dentist office I have ever been to. The staff is professional, courteous, and very easy to talk to and work with. They have televisions on the ceiling for crying out loud (I'm a former Army guy, so anything beyond whiskey and a stick to squeeze is good. Televisions on the ceiling is exceeding the standard).

I've been told I need a crown. What is a crown, and why can't I just have the tooth filled?

Dental fillings are one of the greatest tools we have for maintaining the health of your smile. While they’re versatile, they were never meant to do everything!

Sometimes a tooth becomes so weak or damaged that there is not enough natural tooth structure left to even place a filling. This is where placing a new dental crown would be appropriate.

Dental crowns are a type of restoration that completely encases your natural tooth right to the gum line. Crowns can be made using a variety of materials. But many of our patients choose porcelain because it is the most realistic and natural looking.

A porcelain crown strengthens the tooth, restoring your ability to chew and use the tooth normally. Since it acts as a covering for the damaged tooth, it also improves the tooth’s appearance.

At Azalea Dental, we’re pleased to offer our patients the convenience of CEREC crowns. These revolutionary new crowns can be completed from start to finish during just one appointment at our Summerville dental office. You don’t have to deal with messy impressions, multiple injections, return visits to our office, or the nuisance of dealing with a temporary crown!

Crowns are effective dental restorations that have been in use for decades. If you would like to learn more about CEREC crowns at Azalea Dental, please give us a call. We will be happy to arrange a convenient consultation.
