Dental Crowns

If you seek a general dentist who provides crowns in Lincoln, NE, look no further. At Timothy Calkins, DDS Family Dental Care, we offer a variety of restorative dental services to ensure that your smile is at its best.

Reasons to Get a Crown

Crowns may become necessary for a variety of reasons, although some are more common than others. For instance, one common reason for getting a crown is having a root canal.

When a tooth reaches advanced stages of decay, the bacteria may infect the inner part of the tooth. To remedy this situation, your dentist cleans out the infected area and fills it. Although this prevents pain and removes tooth decay, it may also weaken the overall structure of the tooth.

As a result, crowns often follow root canals to ensure the tooth remains intact and strong enough to withstand pressure from chewing. Here are some other common issues that lead to crown placement:

  • Large fillings that have broken or worn out
  • Broken cusps or excessive wear on the tooth
  • Cracks or compromised tooth structure
  • Receiving one or more dental implants
  • To improve aesthetics

Any time your tooth’s structure becomes weakened or vulnerable, it’s always better to remedy the situation with a reinforced cover (or dental crown) before more damage occurs.

We focus on preventative care and patient education


“I have been a patient of Dr. Calkins for over 20 years. All of my kids have gone to him since they were toddlers. Very conservative in his approach, never tries to do an expensive treatment if it isn’t necessary. Great at giving numbing shots, can’t even feel the needle.”


“I’ve been going to Dr. Calkins for several years and will continue to do so. Tim is very professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and patient. I very much appreciate the time he takes to educate me about dental health, to show me my x-ray, or to explain a procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Calkins and his excellent team.”


“You know when you come back from your dentist feeling good you know you’ve picked the right one. I could go to any dentist in Lincoln but Dr. Calkins and his staff are it for me. After seeing him for over 20 years I’ve always been treated as if I’m his only patient. Who feels strongly enough about their dentist to actually post?”
