We are a CEREC one-visit dentist
Please call us to find out more about receiving your crown in just one visit in most cases.
Cerec has revolutionized the way our practice can deliver treatment to patients like you. This high-tech equipment allows us to restore damaged teeth in a single visit. The result is a beautiful, natural-colored restoration that is much stronger than before.
A Cerec crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
Reasons for crowns:
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Cosmetic enhancement
- Decayed teeth
- Fractured fillings
- Large fillings
- Tooth has a root canal
What does getting a crown involve?
While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, in most cases your tooth with be scaned instead of taking an impression, into the Cerec computer and a crown is fabricted precisly to fit into your mouth in the exact shape and size to fit among your natural teeth. This restoration is natual looking, because it is made of tooth-colored ceramic material. It's metal-free, no silver fillings to discolor your smile! The ceramic material is compatible with tissue in your mouth and is high-grade, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. It allows us to be extremely precise and save more of the healthy part of your tooth.
You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to maintain a beautiful, healthy smile to last a lifetime.
