Sometimes a tooth has become too damaged to be helped with a dental filling or other restoration. When this occurs, our dentist at Old Greenwich Dental Associates may recommend a dental crown to restore and protect your injured tooth.
A dental crown, also sometimes called a dental cap, encloses the entire surface of your tooth, giving it back its original size, shape, and function. Many different materials can be used for crowns, but porcelain crowns are by far the most popular, because their color resembles that of natural teeth. Like most restorations, these types of crowns are very durable and can last for years before needing a replacement.
Some possible reasons for needing a dental crown or cap include suffering a broken or fractured tooth, experiencing tooth decay that can’t be helped with a filling, needing a root canal, fracturing an existent filling, or desiring a cosmetic enhancement for misshaped or discolored teeth.
Typically, you will need two appointments to get your dental crown. During your first appointment, we will take molds or impressions of your teeth, which we’ll use to create your customized dental crown. Our Old Greenwich dentist will also place a temporary crown onto your tooth during this appointment. Before placing your temporary crown, your dentist will first numb your tooth and clean away any decay or debris. Then the temporary crown will be affixed, and this will help to protect your tooth while you wait for the dental laboratory to make your final, permanent crown.
Approximately two weeks later, you will return to see us for your second appointment. At this time, we will remove the temporary mold from your tooth. Your tooth will be numbed and cleaned again to ensure there is no remaining decay or debris. Then we will place the new dental crown, making sure that your bite and tooth spacing is accurate and comfortable.

I strongly recommend OG Dental for those looking for a new dentist or looking to switch. The front desk ladies were very welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful with scheduling and finances. My hygienist, Leah, and Dr. Busch were both great at educating me in the procedures/treatment plan I need to have done and the reasons why. I hadn't been to the dentist in years and the quality of care and attention was excellent! This office is beautiful, modern and also family friendly!
Everyone is amazing and friendly! Dr. Busch is a normal down to earth guy. The front desk team is always on their game. Danielle is the best hygienist going. So happy I found this group.
Awesome experience! Highly recommended! Staff is super friendly and cleaning was quick and enjoyable. Will be returning!
I absolutely love my dental office. It is like visiting family when I go to an appointment. Everyone is so friendly and efficient. I would recommend this dental office to anyone and everyone I know or meet. Always a pleasure :)
Talented, caring staff provides comprehensive care and an extensive network of other providers when need for special surgery arises.
I've been a patient of OGDA since 1988 and have been very pleased with the care I've gotten. The professionals and staff are all totally dedicated to the dental and overall health of their patients.
I have never been to a dental or medical office that was so welcoming and efficient my first visit went with ease. The receptionist knew who I was upon my entering the greeted me with the biggest smiles which was a great start. I then went on to meet the hygienist Kate who cleaned my teeth like never before she was very knowledgeable and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way, she then called the doctor in who was a really cool dude he spoke to me in dental language I can understand made sure before leaving I understood everything we discussed. I do need a few more visits, but I plan on now switching the rest of my family. Thank you Dr. Busch and Staff
It is rare to find a dentist who has excellent credentials, state of the art knowledge and equipment, and a responsive and caring staff. Dr. Busch and his support team accomplish this in an exemplary fashion. His care has been excellent in all ways. I would highly recommend his practice to anyone with dental issues.
