When Do We Prescribe Dental Crowns?
Since a crown covers a tooth’s entire visible portion, we use them to address a variety of cosmetic and restorative concerns. For example, placing a restoration repairs advanced decay, broken or chipped teeth, and dental infections. We treat cracked teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and help anchor dental bridges in place. We even use them to restore single tooth dental implants, ensuring your replacement tooth looks natural.
Same Day Placement
Using the CAD/CAM E4D system, we create and place a completed dental crown in a single visit. We begin by prepping the tooth, which means removing a small amount of outer surface. We then take detailed digital impressions, which will be used to create a 3D model. We upload the information into the E4D milling machine, which creates a custom-made restoration from a solid block of ceramic. Using a powerful bonding agent, we place the restoration. In one visit, we restore your tooth!
A Natural Looking Restoration
We use ceramic not just for the material’s durability and strength, but also due to ceramic’s ability to mimic the appearance of tooth enamel. We even shade the material to better blend with your smile. Once in place, your restoration should blend with your smile seamlessly. If you have any questions about the E4D process, or if you think your smile could benefit from a custom restoration, then contact our team today.
