Do I Need A Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are one of the most common restorations in cosmetic dentistry services. After decay, age or a dental accident have affected the healthy structure of a tooth a dental crown can extend the life of a tooth in a number of ways:
- seal a large portion of the tooth after a root canal
- cover permanent staining or discoloration
- protect a weakened tooth after damage, decay or an accident
- repair a broken, fractured, chipped or damaged tooth
- replace a missing tooth with a dental implant
- improve the appearance of a misshapen or irregular tooth
At Highland Dental Health our CEREC® CAD/CAM dental crown and dental veneer technology come complete with 4D imaging software and an in-house milling unit to deliver highly personalized and custom dental crowns in one same-day appointment. Ceramic Reconstruction (CEREC) creates strong, long-lasting porcelain crowns that are color-matched, milled, and ready for placement in the office before you ever leave your first appointment.
Dental Crowns With Dr. Garrison
At your appointment, Dr. Garrison carefully examines your teeth to determine if you may need a dental crown or “cap.” Once the process begins anesthetic can be applied if necessary to numb the affected area while the tooth is prepared for placement of the dental crown. Dr. Garrison and a dental assistant will take pictures of your teeth to thoroughly examine your current dental condition and the structure of the affected tooth or teeth.
From these comprehensive images, CAD/CAM software builds a detailed model of the new tooth or teeth. This design is carefully milled from a block of strong, durable porcelain that looks and feels much like the composition of a healthy adult tooth. After the replacement tooth is fitted and small adjustments are made, the crown is placed in an oven to finish the crystallization process of the porcelain material and then bond the restoration to the tooth. After final adjustments are made the entire process may take less than 2 hours and result in a strong, natural-looking smile in just one visit.
