When to Choose a Crown
Dental crowns aren’t just versatile; they’re also one of the oldest and most frequently recommended forms of dental restoration. They’ve endured so long because they’re effective. Dental crowns can help protect and preserve damaged teeth, prevent further tooth issues, restore your bite’s ability to function, and in some cases, improve a tooth’s severe cosmetic blemishes. However, placing a dental crown also involves preparing your tooth by modifying a notable portion of it. Therefore, we only recommend dental crowns for teeth that cannot be successfully restored or improved with more conservative treatments, such as porcelain veneers.
How to Make a Crown in One Day
Traditionally, receiving a dental crown was a multi-step, multi-visit process. Your first appointment would include preparing and measuring the tooth, and possibly having a temporary restoration placed over it. This restoration protects the prepared tooth until your final crown is completed by trusted, but off-site, dental technicians. To eliminate the wait time and help you enjoy your new smile faster, we utilize advanced CAD/CAM technology to create a highly precise, digital mold of your teeth and dental ridge. The information is used by an onsite milling machine that crafts your custom dental crown from a piece of customized, highly lifelike porcelain.
