Crowns & Bridges
When the tooth it too damaged for restorative fillings, the best option may be a dental crown. A dental crown can often be used to strengthen, improve, and regenerate your natural teeth.
Traditionally, crowns require two appointments. The first appointment involves having the tooth prepared and taking an impression of the teeth in order to create a permanent crown. The temporary crown is fitted for around 14 days to protect the tooth until the permanent one arrives back from the dental lab. In the meantime, you will have to make your second appointment (which usually happens two weeks later) where the temporary crown is removed and replaced with your permanent one.
Our new digital solution for dental crowns lets you experience them firsthand at our office. We utilize CEREC® technology to help ease the process, cutting it from two weeks to one visit! You’ll watch your permanent crown come together before your eyes. Once the design is finished, we will mill it right then and there in-between other appointments.
Temporary crowns used to fall off in the middle of conversations, losing your teeth’s support. They used to cause missing time from work and family what you’ve waited so long for. We’re giving you durable, satisfying results that last a lifetime.
A bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. The teeth on either side of the missing tooth are prepared as crowns to hold the bridge in place. In some cases, a bridge needs to be attached at one single point, which is called a cantilever bridge. Bridges help people restore their smile and halt the movement or tilting of adjacent teeth. A bridge-crown procedure may not differ much from a traditional crown procedure.
CEREC® technology makes enhancements to your smile simple and fast. In just two appointments, you can look more youthful and improve your dental health. CEREC® is also useful for completing bridges in one visit.
