A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom-made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. While dental crowns can be made of several different materials, our CEREC crowns are made of high-quality porcelain, giving you a naturally-beautiful and long-lasting result for your smile.
Your smile may benefit from a crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:
- To protect a tooth following root canal treatment
- To anchor and attach a dental bridge
- To cover and complete a dental implant
- To enhance the beauty of your smile
- To improve a misshapen tooth
- To strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weak
- To support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
Most dental crowns traditionally require two appointments to complete, but CEREC same-day technology allows us to create and place your entire crown in a matter of minutes, reducing your overall treatment time and allowing you to leave our office with a smile after just one appointment with our dentist.
