What are crowns?
CEREC ® crowns are milled in our office in one visit from porcelain blocks to cover a tooth to protect it from fracturing or breaking. Crowns are used to protect teeth that have had big extensive fillings or molar teeth that have had root canal treatments.
Signs You Need A Crown
You want to improve the appearance of a tooth
You have had a root canal
A tooth is in danger of breaking
What Can I Expect During My Appointment?
Your dentist will examine the tooth in need of a crown, and take several pictures of it from multiple angles.
Creating Your Crown
Using these pictures, a computer program builds a model of your tooth, and uses this to shape a piece of porcelain to match.
Application of The Crown
After the porcelain is shaped and polished, your dentist will install it over top of your existing tooth, cementing it into place. This whole process can be done in one visit over 4-6 hours!
