Dr. Turner uses highly durable zirconia to create all-ceramic crowns. Zirconia is prized for being biocompatible, which makes it ideal for patients who are allergic to the alloys used in porcelain crowns with a metal base.

So I found the right dentist. This office is very inviting and professional but down to earth and makes you feel so comfortable. Sometimes I have a bit of anxiety at a dentist office but they explained everything and use the most updated procedures where I was not worried at all. Great place and I will not need to look any further for a dentist.

Are You Looking for a Cosmetic Solution? Crowns Can Improve Your Smile

While dental crowns can repair and strengthen teeth, they are also a beautiful solution for teeth that are discolored or misshapen. Dr. Turner can skillfully restore your smile with natural-looking restorations that enhance your appearance and self-confidence.

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a custom-made cap that completely covers a weakened tooth. They are used to protect and restore the shape of teeth when a filling can't effectively restore the tooth. While crowns can be made of many materials like resin or porcelain, Dr. Turner uses high-tech zirconia to create all-ceramic crowns that look and feel natural and are also extremely durable. 

With good oral hygiene habits and regular dental visits, a dental crown can last 10 years or longer.

Do Big Syringes Make You Nervous?

We understand. For many people, it's not the dental treatment that makes them uncomfortable, it's the injections to numb the area that makes them wince.

Dr. Turner is the only dentist in Jackson County who uses the state-of-the-art Wand anesthesia system, a computer-controlled method to administer anesthesia; it makes the numbing step more comfortable. Instead of a big syringe, the Wand looks like a small pen with a cord attached.

Most patients report that injections with the Wand are completely painless.

Are You Missing a Tooth?        Consider an Implant-Supported Crown

Missing teeth are more than just embarrassing, they can also lead to deterioration of the bone in your jaw.

While people often use a traditional bridge to replace a tooth, a traditional bridge is not ideal because it only replaces the missing tooth and not the root. It is the tooth root that stimulates the bone in your jaw to regenerate. With no stimulation, the jaw begins to weaken and deteriorate.

In contrast, an implant-supported crown restores the entire tooth, including the root. With an implant-supported crown, the crown is attached to a titanium rod that is inserted into the jawbone. This rod, which is the dental implant, acts as the tooth root and encourages the jaw to continually rebuild bone. Dr. Turner can refer you to a skilled oral surgeon to place the implant, and then you can return to our greater Kansas City, MO, office to have it restored with a crown.

Dental implants are the only way you can prevent the weakening of your jaw after a tooth has been lost. 

Invest in Your Dental Health  With Dental Implants

With the proper care, your dental implants can last for your whole life. They are an important investment in your dental health, allowing you to eat, smile, and laugh confidently.

Whether you need a new crown to place on your existing dental implant or you're just beginning your implant-supported crown journey, Dr. Turner can help.

You will be referred to a trusted oral and maxillofacial surgeon in the Kansas City area for implant placement. Dr. Turner and the surgeon will collaborate on a cohesive treatment plan with long-term benefits to your oral health.

My family has been going to Dr. Turner for over 25 years. Initially, when one of my kids had her first appointment she was super scared. Dr. Turner sat with her and talked to her for the first half dozen appointments before she would let him look at her teeth! He was so patient and kind. His office is always friendly, prompt, and provide great care. I had a dental emergency and they worked me in on a Friday! I do not go to any other provider.

Watch How a Dental Crown Is Placed

Dental crowns are reliable and attractive solutions for many dental problems. 

What to Expect

From start to finish, Dr. Turner puts patient comfort first and uses high-tech instruments to create comfortable, long-lasting restorations that give patients years of satisfaction. 
Experience professional care in an enjoyable, state-of-the-art environment.
Experience professional care in an enjoyable, state-of-the-art environment.

Comfort Comes First

To place your dental crown, the dentist first numbs the treatment area using the Wand so that you will be comfortable during the procedure.

Preparing the Tooth

The dentist will then shape the tooth to create space for the crown and ensure a secure, comfortable fit. 

Creating a Digital Impression

Using the iTero Scanner, the dentist will take millions of digital images of your tooth. The scan will be sent to our lab to create a crown matching our exact specifications. This step typically takes a couple weeks.

Placing a Temporary Crown

While you wait for your permanent crown, a temporary crown will be applied. You will need to take a few minor precautions with your temporary crown, such as not chewing hard foods and taking care when you floss. The dentist will give you complete instructions at your appointment. 

Placing the Permanent Crown

When your permanent crown is completed, you will return to our office to have the temporary crown removed. Once our dentist checks to ensure the permanent crown fits comfortably and meets his aesthetic standards, he will bond it permanently in place.

Find Relief Soon With a Custom Set of Durable Crowns

Tired of not being able to eat, smile, or live without pain? You may need a dental crown.

Though it can take a little time to craft your custom crown, you won't have to wait much longer for relief. Dr. Turner can place a temporary crown on your tooth. That way, when you leave our office, you have a solution in place until your permanent crown is ready.

Once the final crown is crafted, the temporary crown can be removed and your smile can be fully restored.

At our dentistry practice serving Kansas City, we combine patient-centered care with effective technology. We are here to help.

A Closer Look at the iTero 3D Digital Scanner

Tech using the iTero 3D Digital Scanner
Precise results matter — especially when it comes to your teeth. Our dentistry practice features a high-tech iTero 3D Digital Scanner. It effectively scans your teeth, creating a 3D impression for the lab to use while creating your zirconia crown. This digital impression leads to accurate-looking, well-fitting dental crowns.
 

The material of your crown, like resin and zirconia, can impact its longevity. 

 What Are Dental Crowns Made Of? We Use All-Ceramic Zirconia

Dental crowns are made from a variety of materials, but Dr. Turner only uses high-end zirconia. While zirconium is a relatively new material for restorations, it combines the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain. 

There are cheaper dental materials, such as resin, that can be used for restorations, but Dr. Turner finds that many of them cost more in the long run. For example, resin restorations wear quickly and are more likely to break. Porcelain that has been fused to metal is another restoration material he avoids as the porcelain tends to chip and break off the metal base.
