CEREC / PFM / GOld / Zirconia Dental Crowns
A crown is a restoration that completely encircles a tooth and mimics the look and feel of natural teeth. Our goal for crowns is to ensure the protection of your remaining natural teeth and keep the proper appearance and function of your bite. We have many styles, shades and materials to restore a broken tooth back to its full function with crowns. We take pride in making our crowns blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. If you have a tooth that is damaged beyond a simple repair with a crown, we may need to discuss other options such as extraction/root-canals or dental implants to fix your tooth.
Some crowns are shaped from a solid block of porcelain while others are made of gold. For traditional crowns, crafting and installing the restoration will typically require two appointments, and a temporary crown will be fit while the crown is crafted.
However, for your comfort and convenience, we have added a CEREC lab machine to our office. This technology allows us to scan and re-create a porcelain replica of your tooth in our office in just one appointment. CEREC’s technology saves you time and ensures a natural fit!
