Many patients will eventually find themselves in need of a dental crown. You may need this repair or restoration of your tooth for many reasons. The most common reasons include the need to protect a tooth that has become too weak due to tooth decay or a crack or to restore a broken tooth. If you need a filling but find that there is not much healthy tooth enamel left for the restoration – this may also require your dentist to use a dental crown.
Other uses for dental crowns include support for dental bridges and covers for dental implants. Some patients have often turned away from receiving a dental crown out of fear of how long the process will be. Typically, porcelain or ceramic dental crowns can take up to three visits to complete. This method will require a patient to be fitted with a potentially loose, temporary crown in the meantime.
However, with new CEREC technology, you can receive a beautiful, permanent crown in just one dental visit. CEREC’s precision 3-D technology allows us to create a customized crown that fits your teeth perfectly and is completely compatible with your natural tooth structure.
