Dr. Albert Caves is one of a few dentists in Columbus, Georgia to offer patients the option of same day dental crowns. Using advanced CAD/CAM technology, Dr. Caves can design and fabricate a dental crown in our Columbus, GA dentist office. The crown, which is custom made in just minutes, can be placed on the same visit, meaning faster, more comfortable treatment.
A dental crown is a permanent covering that fits over an original tooth that is either decayed, damaged or cracked. Dental crowns are made of a variety of different materials such as porcelain, gold, acrylic resin or a mix of these materials. When possible, Dr. Caves uses porcelain for these restorations because of its natural appearance.
Dental crowns are often indicated after a root canal procedure to protect and add strength to the tooth. Dental crowns may also be used to support a dental bridge.

"Dr. Albert Caves and his staff are amazingly gentle! I had my wisdom teeth taken out by another dentist and I had pain for a month. The other dentist wouldn't do anything so I went to Dr. Albert's office and he helped me. I felt great as soon as I left there. I highly recommend him and his staff to anyone! We had to PCS and I can't find another dentist anywhere near as great as he is."Online Review Yellow Pages
Dental Crowns What to Expect
Dr. Caves has incorporated the latest technology into his office to give patients the option of “Crown in a Day”. The CEREC technology digitally maps the tooth and creates a porcelain dental crown in a single visit, so there is no waiting, no temporaries and no worrying about how the final restoration will fit, feel and look.
Changes to the fit and color of the dental crown can be made while you wait, before you even leave the office. Our patients love this advanced technology because it saves the time and money of multiple visits. And the quality of the restorations is amazing. CEREC dental crowns are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, made of high quality dental porcelain.
How To Care For Dental Crowns
Once the tooth crown procedure is complete, proper dental hygiene, including daily brushing and flossing, is required to maintain healthy restoration. Dental crowns are susceptible to decay around the margins, so brushing and flossing is very important to ensure their longevity.
A dental crown will last for many years, even a lifetime if cared for properly.
Ceramic tooth crowns are very durable and highly resistant to stains from foods and drinks.
