With the most advanced 3-D scanning technology, our dentists can replicate a patient’s tooth to create crowns. This is the perfect remedy for broken, chipped, and decayed teeth.
Convenient and Quick: With CEREC crown technology, you get the beauty of a porcelain crown in one visit! Whether routine dental visits or for that unexpected visit, we can provide you with beautiful gray fused to gold crowns that enhance your smile and last a lifetime. We only use the best materials with straighter and more durable results.
Process: In a nutshell, the process will be similar to what you’ve witnessed with a 3-D printer:
- We will first take a digital picture of the tooth that needs a crown.
- Next, we create the model. We take those digital images and create a digital model of your tooth using CAD/CAM technology.
- Then, the machine creates or mills a 3-D tooth out of ceramic. This process takes approximately 15 minutes.
- Finally, we fit your new crown inside your mouth after polishing it.
As the anesthesia wears off, your newly crowned tooth will be sensitive. After a few days, the sensation should subside.
