Dental crowns, or caps, are a type of dental restoration designed to cover the entire visible portion of your tooth. They are typically recommended to restore teeth that have sustained significant damage or decay, and they work by returning the tooth to its original shape and size, protecting it from further damage. Crowns are used for a number of aesthetic and restorative purposes, including:
- Restoring a tooth following a root canal
- Anchoring and attaching a dental bridge
- Covering and completing a dental implant
- Improving the appearance of the tooth
- Strengthening and protecting teeth which are fractured or weakened
- Supporting teeth with large fillings
By using CEREC technology, we can complete your dental crown in a single appointment. CEREC uses CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) technology to digitally design your crown. When you receive a same-day dental crown, our dentists will use the CEREC device to create a digital impression. The crown will then be designed and milled in a matter of minutes using this impression and a 3D model. Our dentists will then place the crown, check that it fits and bond it in to place to complete your treatment.
