A crown is a dental prosthetic that caps the visible portion of the tooth and helps strengthen compromised teeth. Crowns are essential because if the structural integrity of a tooth fails because of a filling or root canals, you could lose the tooth completely. They can also be used in combination with dental implants. Previously, getting a crown that perfectly fits your tooth would be a process that required another appointment. Now, thanks to the CEREC system, we can scan the tooth, make a design, and mill a custom crown all in one visit. Same-day crowns give you the support your teeth need without the need to come in for several appointments over a longer period of time. Some of the benefits of same-day crowns include:

  • A restored tooth that was previously damaged, cracked, or broken
  • Added strength for a weakened tooth
  • Protection of a tooth after root canal therapy
  • Tooth replacement in combination with a dental bridge
