Why do I need a dental crown?
Dental crowns may be small, but they have many uses in dentistry. Dr. Colby Smith may recommend a ceramic tooth cap in many instances, including:
- To protect a tooth after root canal therapy
- To repair a decayed or damaged tooth
- To anchor a dental bridge in place
- To complete the dental implant treatment
- To conceal a misshapen, rotated, or severely stained tooth
- To repair a cavity too large for a filling or onlay
Are you worried about losing your natural aesthetics after crown treatment? You don’t have to. Our dental team customizes your crown to blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. The outcome is nothing but aesthetically appealing and comfortably fitting.
Dental crown procedure
Traditional crowns require at least two dental appointments. The first visit involves a consultation with your dentist to examine your damaged tooth. If the tooth can be restored with a crown, the dentist numbs your mouth and shaves down your tooth to create room for a crown. Next, we take your bite impressions to make models, which we send to a dental lab to engineer your crown. Once your crown is ready, you book another appointment with the dentist for permanent installation.
Today, technological advancements have made it possible to have crowns made and installed in one day! Yes, thanks to CEREC technology, dentists can restore your teeth with same-day dental crowns. The procedure is similar to traditional crowns, only that CEREC dentists have in-house milling machines to fabricate your crown as you wait — no need to send your dental models to an off-site dental lab, which is time-consuming.
