Dental Crowns

Having a damaged or decayed tooth can be painful and make it difficult to eat or speak. 

Our Hewitt dental practice just outside of Waco, TX, can craft beautiful and natural-looking dental crowns to restore your tooth. 

Learn how our skilled dentists can help you achieve a beautiful smile with same-day crowns in as little as one appointment.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped shell made of porcelain that fits over a damaged tooth or over a decayed tooth following treatment like root canal therapy. A crown restores the tooth's function and provides strength and protection to maintain the structure, eliminating the need for extraction. A dental crown can also be paired with a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth.

Crowns in One Visit

Our Hewitt dental practice is proud to offer same-day porcelain crowns using CEREC® technology. This allows us to craft your custom porcelain restoration in as little as an hour. At our practice, you can save both time and money because there is no need to wait weeks for a permanent crown, or hassle with a temporary crown.

Your dentist will reshape the natural tooth so that the crown fits properly and blends with your other teeth. 

Benefits of a Dental Crown

Restored Function

A damaged or decayed tooth can not only be painful, but also make it difficult to properly chew or speak. A dental crown helps to restore your oral function so you can chew and speak properly.

Restored Appearance

Dental crowns also provide cosmetic benefits. Our crowns are shade-matched and designed to look natural alongside your other teeth. In addition to their practical benefits, our crowns can be used to conceal cosmetic imperfections such as cracks and chips. 

Restored Oral Health

Once your dentist addresses decay or trauma with treatments such as root canal therapy, a crown can protect the tooth to prevent further damage.

Concerned About Costs?

The cost of your porcelain crown treatment will vary based on a number of factors, such as the need for preparatory treatment (such as dental implant placement or root canal therapy) and the number of teeth that need a dental crown.

We want to make expert oral health care accessible to patients in Hewitt, Waco, and surrounding communities. Here is how we help make our treatments a comfortable fit for your budget:


We accept most insurance plans to help reduce your out-of-pocket treatment costs. We will help file the needed paperwork to maximize your dental insurance benefits.


To help patients without insurance, or to cover costs not covered by dental insurance, we accept CareCredit®. This allows you to pay for treatment in affordable monthly installments.

Payment Options

We accept multiple payment options, including cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. 

Dental Crown Treatment Timeline


During your initial consultation at our dentistry practice near Waco, your dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your needs and goals to determine if a dental crown is right for you.

Preparatory Treatment

If you need preparatory treatment such as root canal therapy or implant placement, this must be done first. 


Your dentist will begin your dental treatment by numbing the area. We also offer sedation dentistry options to help those who need an extra level of comfort. 

Tooth Prep

Once you are thoroughly numbed, your dentist will reshape the tooth. This allows the dental crown to fit and blend with your other teeth.  


Next, your dentist will take impressions. This allows us to craft your porcelain crown. 


Using CEREC technology, we will begin to create your crown right in our office.  Same-day crowns are made of durable porcelain. This takes as little as an hour and eliminates the need for a temporary crown.


Once your dental crown is ready, your dentist will bond it to the tooth structure (or implant). All that is left to do is enjoy your newly restored smile.
