A crown (or cap) 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. 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:
What does getting a cerec crown involve?
In our office we use Computer Aid Design and Computer Aid Manufacture equipment to make the ceramic crowns free of any metal in one visit.
It eliminates the need of a second appointment and the making of a temporary crown. Our patients really appreciate the high technology that we provide.
You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
