Your smile is beautiful, but may be in need of slight improvement. One way to have the look of healthy teeth is through the use of dental crowns. Dental crowns are made from a ceramic material and is custom-made to fit directly over your natural tooth. The color of the ceramic crown can be matched to the shade of the surrounding teeth, creating a natural look. Crowns can be used to hold a cracked tooth together, to replace a damaged or decayed tooth, and to cover permanent staining.
Typically, traditional dental crowns are milled and crafted in a laboratory, making it necessary that you wear a temporary crown in the interim. However, advanced CEREC technology, available in our practice, allows you can now have a permanent crown custom-designed and crafted for you in a single visit. Computerized 3D technology creates a perfect model of your crown, which is then used as a guide to shape the porcelain block into a crown that’s the ideal fit for your smile and function. CEREC one-visit crowns are durable, long-lasting metal-free solutions that give you the freedom to smile, speak and chew comfortably.
A crown consultation will help the doctor determine which type of crown will best enhance your smile and improve your oral health.
