The decayed portion of a tooth is cleaned out and the remaining tooth structure is reshaped to allow a CEREC crown to fit over. Using CEREC technology we are able to make the crown in office in one visit.
Crowns can last many years and will function just like your original tooth. The edge of the crown will usually end at the gumline. The natural tooth structure is present there and can get decay if not properly cleaned and maintained. Great oral hygiene involving brushing and flossing can help the crown last a long time.
Sometimes additional personalization is needed to match the individual characteristics of your teeth. Porcelain glazes and subtle tints are painted onto the dental crown to match your teeth. The crown is placed into a porcelain furnace to cure the ceramic to its final hardness and fuse the glaze.
‘‘I love the fact that he can do crowns in one visit and Esther and her team are so sharp and on top of things.
