Metal-Free Crowns

Metal-Free Crowns for Naturalistic Looks

Smile Big Dental Specialists provides metal-free crowns to Oakbrook Terrace, IL patients who need to restore their teeth, attach bridges, protect weak or fractured teeth, and more. Many of our patients appreciate the option to forego the noticeable metal crowns in favor of more natural-looking alternatives. Crowns are perfect for individuals who need to improve not only the appearance of their smile but also their biting strength. We can help you select the best crown for your budget and sensibilities.

What to Expect From the Crown Procedure

We can offer several options for our patients. Which one you choose will depend on several factors, including the tooth’s location, the tissue’s position, and how much of your tooth shows when you smile. Additionally, we consider the shade of your other teeth and the tooth’s function. Our porcelain crowns are useful in every manner. They are strong, providing patients with the resistance they require while eating foods. Crown placement procedures are standard and pain-free for the patient, though they need two separate visits to our office.

Our Process:

Removal of the Outer Portion

First, we need to rid the tooth of all diseased or decaying material. There is no sense in placing a crown if we do not complete this step.

Make an Impression

Next, our dentist will make an impression of the tooth to make an accurate crown for you.

A Temporary Crown

Once we take an impression, we will place a temporary crown on the tooth for you to wear while fabricating the permanent crown.


We usually need to make minor adjustments to the crown. At the final appointment, we will place the crown and make those necessary changes.

Take Care of Your Oral Health!

It is vital to take care of your crowns. Regular brushing and flossing will remain essential. These actions remove the bacteria and plaque that can erode the filling and cause problems with the rest of your teeth. We do not recommend chewing ice or eating hard foods when you have a crown because they will fracture the crown.

Client Testimonials

Gina H.

I have over 15 years experience in clinical dentistry and dental laboratory management. I can honestly say that Dr. Arredondo gives the best, most honest care that I have ever received. He does great work, its pain free, the office is clean, staff is professional. My parents also go here and they really love him as well. I've worked for a lot of Dentists who, in my opinion, treatment plan extra services just to bill extra production. That IS NOT the case at this office. They will take care of your needs and nothing more/nothing less. Rest assured. As a patient of this office for upwards of 7 years... I highly recommend Smile Big Dental Specialists.

Reyna S.

My boyfriend and I visited their new location at 1S376 Summit Ave in Oak Brook Terrace, IL and absolutely adored the place. The location was very clean and updated and the staff was friendly as well as informative! I hadn't been to the dentist in a while so I'm outdated on technology but it was amazing to see the newer instruments used for the X-rays and cleanings! My hygienist David was very gentle, kind and answered everything I had questions about. The doctor came in later after my cleaning and went over everything again and informed me on how to properly care for the issues I was having...
