A crown is a prosthetic positioned over a tooth to create a smoother look and enhance strength and durability. When a tooth is:
The placement of a crown is often recommended. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your smile. A crown may last up to 40 years.
An Optical Impression will then be taken of the prepared tooth. Instead of filling a tray with impression “goop” that you must bite into and hold in your mouth until it hardens, the tooth is coated with a non-toxic, tasteless powder. A camera is then used to take a digital picture of your tooth. This whole Optical Impression process only takes a minute or two.
A ceramic block that matches your tooth shade is placed in the milling machine. About 10 – 20 minutes later, your all-ceramic, tooth-colored restoration is finished and ready to bond in place. The restoration is inserted into your mouth to ensure proper fit and bite. It is then polished and bonded to the prepared tooth.
Your tooth is restored with no “temporary” or return trip necessary. All of this is done in a single appointment.Back to General Dentistry
