Over time our teeth begin to weaken and become more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks, discoloration and others. If you feel your smile isn’t what it once was, crowns can help you recover your smile. If your dentist notices that a tooth is decayed or seems weakened/cracked a crown may be necessary to make sure that there are no additional problems with the tooth. In cases like this a filling or bonding will not be sufficient.
Crowns can be made from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or a full gold crown. To maintain a natural look and feel a porcelain finished crown is best, as it can be matched to the shade of your other teeth. This will allow it to blend in and appear just like one of your natural teeth.
The process of installing a crown takes just one visit with our in office E4D system. On your visit, the doctor will scan and capture the 3D intraoral images using the laser scanner and create a virtual model and plan for the custom restoration.
Using the E4D milling machine, your restoration will be created and placed on the same day giving you back your smile with speed ,convenience and efficiency.
The milled restoration is stronger and usually last longer than traditional crowns. You should care for it as you would any of your other teeth with regular brushing ,flossing and regular dental checkups.
