Complete Dental Crown or Bridge Work in a Single Visit.
Need a dental crown? Our office uses technology that can help complete the entire process in a single visit, with precisely fitting results. Don't run the risk of further injury to your teeth by delaying necessary dental work because of the discomfort and inconvenience of multiple major visits. Our crown appointments take just a few hours and then you're back to your life.
When do I need a dental crown?
Sometimes, decay on a tooth can spread far enough that there isn't enough tooth left to hold a filling in. In these cases, a crown can help provide better structure, so that your teeth don't crack or break. Crowns are often used to cover and protect teeth that have had a root canal, or over dental implant posts to replace missing teeth. Dental crowns can also help secure a bridge, where two crowns are attached to teeth on each end of a missing tooth area, and a replacement tooth spans between them, supported by the crowns.
Sometimes crowns are used cosmetically, covering malformed or yellowing teeth with even, straight replacements. Regardless of your situation, when we propose a crown, we can explain the specific options in your case and provide you images and information that will help you make an informed decision.
At our office, we use CEREC machinery to complete single-visit crowns. This machinery utilizes the latest technology and the CEREC process. Along with CEREC, your dentist will use CAD technology to design the customized crown. Using a high-powered diamond bur and a disk, the CAM grinds the crown out of a solid block of ceramic material. After this process is completed, the dentist will affix the new crown to the surface of the natural tooth. Surprisingly, this entire process only takes a few hours. Check out the CEREC video overview that shows the steps you can expect when receiving a crown at our office.
