What is a Dental Crown?
CEREC Same-Day Crowns
The Process of Getting a Dental Crown
Getting a traditional dental crown require at least two appointments to our office. During the first visit, we will prepare your tooth for the crown by removing a small amount of natural enamel from it. This will allow your dental crown to blend with your smile without protruding from your mouth or affecting your bite. We will then take impressions of your tooth that will be used to make a model to send off to our dental laboratory. We will place a temporary crown to protect your prepared tooth until your permanent one arrives.
Once our dental laboratory sends us your customized crown, we will call you in for your second appointment. After removing your temporary crown, we will cement the customized permanent one to your damaged tooth, restoring its shape, size, and structure.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
Each of our dental crowns is made from high-quality and durable materials that will last you for years with the proper care. Our dentists take the time to match the shape, color, and size of the crown as closely to your natural teeth as possible. That way, once your damaged tooth receives the restoration, it will be virtually indistinguishable and flawlessly blend with your smile.
Damaged teeth can make it difficult to chew food, which is why you’ll notice that with a dental crown, you have extra support and will be able to eat all of your favorite snacks and meals. Lastly, with a strong bond and seal over your broken, decayed, or treated tooth, you won’t have to worry about harmful oral bacteria sneaking their way into the fragile inner structure and causing severe issues like tooth infections.
