Dental crowns are cap-like structures that can be placed over the biting surface of a tooth (the part that lies above the gumline) that is damaged, broken, or has a large filling. Once placed, the crown will act to provide the tooth structure with extra strength and support, allowing you to use it as you normally would without having to worry about it sustaining additional harm. In many cases, dental crowns are able to extend the lifespan of a patient’s natural tooth and preserve their healthy smile.
Cavities are one of the most common dental problems, but patients no longer have to dread having a smile filled with dark, silver-colored fillings. Instead, Dr. Peterson and Dr. Cammack are happy to offer tooth-colored fillings as an ideal alternative that offers the same amount of support in a much more seamless fashion. Because tooth-colored fillings are not made of metal, they can be blended and shaded so that they match your natural smile as precisely as possible. Additionally, they’re much more conservative than traditional fillings, allowing us to retain as much original tooth structure as possible, as well as less sensitive to hot or cold temperatures.
CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
CEREC is a special system that we use to craft customized, durable, and perfectly-fitted dental crowns within a single appointment. That way, you won’t have to wait for two weeks and wear a temporary crown that might give you trouble while you’re waiting for your permanent one to come from a lab. Instead, we’ll capture a digital impression of your tooth and send it off to our in-house milling machine, which will hold a solid block of dental porcelain. Using the digital impression as a blueprint, the mill will carve a dental crown, allowing us to immediately place it afterward.
