  3. True or False: They will look natural.
  4. True or False: Creation and placement takes one visit.

Answer Key

  1. True. The restoration fits over the visible portion of the tooth, allowing us to address serious issues with a tooth’s appearance and function. We often use them to repair cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. We also reshape naturally malformed teeth and help close gaps between the teeth. If a patient wears down a tooth due to bruxism (teeth grinding), we also lengthen them using a custom-made dental crown.
  2. True. We also help anchor a dental bridge in place, which replaces between one and three missing teeth in a row. For patients with single tooth dental implants, we use one to complete the visible portion of the tooth.
  3. True. We create them using ceramic, a strong material that mimics the appearance of tooth structure and also contains stain-resistant properties. When in place, the restoration will look completely natural.
  4. True. We first prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of structure and then take detailed digital impressions. The impressions allow us to create a 3D model, which we upload into a special machine to mill a crown from a solid block of ceramic. In the same visit, we place the completed restoration.
