A crown covers an entire tooth surface— restoring its original shape and size. It protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
These crowns can repair cracks, chips, or discoloration in your smile. Most importantly, crowns can also help protect vulnerable teeth. This useful dental method can fix multiple problems at once and leave your teeth looking great afterwards.
Types of Crowns
There are many different types of crowns, including gold alloys and porcelain-fused to metal; however porcelain crowns are the most popular because they resemble your natural teeth.
We also offer zirconia or e.max crowns. The ceramic offered here is 4 to 10 times stronger than the veneer on porcelain-fused to metal crowns. This results in a long-lasting restoration.
When you sit down and talk with our staff, we can explain the advantages and disadvantages of each type of crown, so you feel confident picking the style that works best for you.
Our e.max crowns are SAME-DAY CROWNS using CEREC©. We use digital technology to produce the crowns while you take a short break. This means no temporary crown, and therefore no second appointment is needed.
Another wonderful benefit is that there is no need for an impression with the goopy material in your mouth. We use a small scanner that is well-received by our patients. This scanner helps us produce a crown that fits your unique smile.
Your crown is milled in our office with our CEREC© machine. You are able to walk out with a quality customized crown that restores both function and aesthetics to your smile.
Best of all, we can place these crowns the same day that you come in! You can have the benefits of crowns without running back and forth between your home and our clinic.
