Dental Crowns

Decayed, damaged, or weakened teeth often require strength and reinforcement for optimal oral health.

Dental crowns are custom-crafted restorations designed to fit over the entire tooth structure, protecting it for many years to come.

Dentist Timothy M. Kelly places same-day dental crowns at our Albuquerque, NM, practice.

Immediate Results

Have an urgent dental issue? We offer custom same-day crowns to treat damaged or decayed teeth as quickly as possible. With same-day crowns, you can enjoy instant relief and peace of mind knowing your tooth is protected.

No Temporary Crowns

Traditional crowns require two appointments with an inconvenient waiting time in between. Our in-office milling technology allows our dentist to craft custom dental crowns in just one visit, eliminating the need for temporary crowns or an extra trip to the office.

Fully Customizable

We strive to make each dental restoration indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Our dentist uses high-quality porcelain that is strong, stain-resistant, and tooth-colored. Additionally, Dr. Kelly customizes every dental crown to match the shape, size, and shine of your surrounding teeth.

Whether you just had a root canal or are dealing with a fractured tooth, a dental crown dramatically reduces the risk of decay and other issues with that same tooth in the future.

A Long-Term Solution for Your Dental Needs

Our on-site milling system allows us to make stunning crowns out of porcelain that blends in with the rest of your smile.

How Does the Process Work?

Dental Crown Procedure

Here are the general steps you can expect during dental crown treatment at our Albuquerque practice:

Initial Consultation

Tooth Preparation

First, our dentist must remove damage and decay from the natural tooth. Next, he will gently reshape the tooth. This ensures that your new crown will fit properly and stay firmly in place.


Next, digital impressions of your tooth are taken using our E4D CAD/CAM system. These images are uploaded to our software to help create your fully custom crown and ensure a precise fit.

Crown Fabrication

Your crown will be milled in our office with our advanced CAD/CAM system. Patients can sit back and relax as their same-day crown is created.


Dr. Kelly will assess the fit and look of the crown before bonding it onto the tooth. He will then check your bite and make necessary adjustments before cementing the crown in place.

What Is the Cost of a Dental Crown?

The cost of a dental crown depends on a few factors, such as the material selected and which tooth is being treated. Porcelain crowns range from $950 to $1,200 at our Albuquerque office. We can provide a more accurate price after examining your tooth at your consultation.

Dental insurance companies usually provide partial or full coverage for crowns depending on your plan. Our team is happy to check your insurance to ensure you get the most out of your benefits. 

More about Our E4D Technology

Whenever possible, Dr. Kelly fabricates single-visit tooth crowns using our E4D CAD/CAM system. This advanced technology offers a number of benefits. Most notably, your treatment can be completed in one appointment instead of two. E4D technology also eliminates the need for a temporary crown, which can lower the overall cost of treatment.

Additionally, digital impressions are more comfortable (and more accurate) compared to impressions taken with traditional putty. Our E4D system uses laser scanning as opposed to infrared technology common with CEREC® machines. This eliminates the need for reflective powder, which is commonly used to produce sufficient contrast for digital imaging.
