Dental crowns are cap-like structures that are placed over the biting surface of teeth that have been treated with a large filling, are severely misshapen, or that are damaged. They can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, and metal, depending on your desires. When secured over the tooth, they’re able to provide it with enhanced protection and strength, allowing you to continue using it as you normally would without having to worry about its health.
In the past, dentists would use a metal compound called amalgam to fill teeth that have been deteriorated by decay. Not only did it cause unwanted side-effects like increased sensitivity and tooth discoloration, but the material was also highly visible. We offer a better alternative, called composite resin. This biocompatible material fuses with the tooth’s enamel to create a tight seal and minimize the chances of additional decay, all while seamlessly blending in with the surrounding teeth.
One-Visit Dental Crowns
In addition to offering traditional dental crowns, we can also craft same-day porcelain crowns, all within about two hours. Using the latest technology, like our digital impression system and chairside milling machine, we can prepare your tooth, craft the crown, and place it all in a single appointment. This means you won’t have to take extra time off work or need to have a temporary crown!
