Porcelain Crowns

A crown or (cap) is a cover that fits over a tooth that has been damaged by decay, broken, root canal treated, badly stained or misshapen. A crown looks and feels like a natural tooth and restores the strength and function to your tooth. CEREC same-day crowns require no impressions. We will design and create your crown and permanently bond it to your tooth all in one visit. No temporary crowns required!

One-quarter of Adults are Candidates for Dentures

Did you know that around one quarter or adults over the age of 65 are missing all of their teeth? Dentures are a common and respectable solution to missing teeth. They are so dependable and natural-looking that you’ve probably spoken to someone with dentures and didn’t even know it. Do you think you might be a good candidate for dentures? To be a good candidate for this restorative treatment you should:

Wish to replace several or all of your teeth. There are alternative solutions available if you wish to replace just one or two teeth.

Have a healthy jawbone. After you lose a tooth, your jawbone will slowly become thin and less able to support a denture-- especially an implant-supported denture.

Be ready to take good care of your dentures at home and with routine cleanings and checkups!

What’s the process of getting a crown?

Before CEREC technology came around, getting a crown took 2-3 appointments and required a notoriously uncomfortable temporary crown. Thanks to new techniques and technology, getting your crown is easier than ever. CEREC crowns offer the following advantages:

✓  Highly accurate and comfortable digital 3D scan.

✓  We can preserve more of your natural tooth structure.

✓  Start to finish in one visit.

Examining and preparing the tooth

During the appointment, we will examine your tooth. If the tooth is affected by decay, we will remove the damaged areas and clean it. If your tooth has stress fractures, a crown will help protect the tooth from breaking along the fracture. Then we will shape your natural tooth so the crown fits comfortably overtop.

Shaping the Crown

Once your tooth has been prepared, we’ll use a 3D scanner to take a highly accurate digital scan of your tooth. We no longer require impressions or the use of trays. This 3D scan is used to create a digital model of your new crown. Your porcelain crown is made while you wait with our in-house CEREC machine.

Placing the Crown

Your new crown will be bonded in place right away. No second appointment or temporary crown is needed. Your dentist will make a few final adjustments and ask how it feels to make sure it’s a perfect fit. After a final polish, your new crown is ready to go!

Children’s Dentistry

When children visit a dental office for the first time, it marks the beginning of good oral health and habits that will last a lifetime. Healthy smiles can be an enduring part of your child’s development and adulthood. The health and comfort of baby teeth impact eating habits, the shape of their face and smile, and how adult teeth will come in. Having a healthy smile will also impact a child’s confidence in their fundamental years.The main purpose of your child’s first visit is to relax, have some fun, and start building a positive relationship with the dentist. We speak in a kid-friendly language to describe what we’re doing and will work with your child to keep them as comfortable as possible.

What to Expect

At your child’s first appointment we will:

✓  Talk to you and your child. We will explain what we do, the lingo we use, and familiarize your child with some tools. We’re not so scary after all!
✓  We will gently examine your child’s gums, tongue, teeth and overall health. Our exam will uncover any early problem areas so we can give you personalized guidance.
✓  We will demonstrate to your child how they can brush and clean their teeth at home. We would love to answer any questions you or your child have about dental health.
