Having a dental emergency? Call us!
We understand that dental emergencies don't always happen during regular business hours. We're open on Saturdays and here for you when you need us most.
Everyone at the office is very friendly and helpful, and the technicians are great. I feel like Westerville Dental is very much on top of the latest screening and monitoring techniques, and I really appreciate the thoroughness of the appointments in terms of measuring gum health as well as tooth health. I chose this place when I moved down here based on the good reviews, and I haven't been disappointed.
So professional AND friendly. I know that I am getting the best care for my whole family. Plus, the waiting area is beautiful and comfortable--like a living room!--with a special area for young ones to read and draw on the chalk boards.
So glad I found this office when I moved back to Ohio. I’ve had so many bad experiences at the dentist, this place is understanding and open to my questions, they explain everything and it really seems like they care. They also have an open and inviting waiting room that is beautiful.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped ‘cap’ that your dentist may place over a tooth – covering the tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength, or to improve its appearance.
There are several reasons for needing a tooth crown. It could be that you have a broken or fractured tooth, deep decay, a large filling, or a tooth that just had a root canal.
There are two types of porcelain crowns: complete porcelain or porcelain fused to metal (PFM). A PFM crown consists of a tooth-colored porcelain layer baked onto a metal core. When a tooth needs a restoration, sometimes the best choice is a porcelain crown.
Both Porcelain and PFM crowns are precision-crafted in a dental laboratory; so many dentists require two or more appointments to restore your tooth with a porcelain crown. Like all crowns, this type of crown covers and protects your tooth.
A PFM crown offers patients many benefits, including:
- Long-lasting durability
- An inner metalcore that helps the crown withstand heavy biting surfaces
- An outer porcelain layer that can be made to closely match or improve your natural tooth color
- A porcelain crown may look better but does not have the durability of a PFM Crown
