tooth-colored crowns

CEREC Crowns, Fairhope, AL

Get a Crown in Just One Day

A dental crown is widely used in restorative dentistry to save a damaged tooth from extraction. Thanks to all-ceramic materials, they now also hold a commonplace in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of a flawed tooth. Using the tradition method, it can be a hassle to get a crown because it requires multiple appointments. Now, you can get the high-quality restoration you need using the latest advancements in dentistry. CEREC crowns in Fairhope save time without compromising the end results.

Do I Need a Crown?

A dental crown is a custom-made cap placed over the entire visible portion of a tooth above the gum line. It is used for several purposes, such as:

  • Protect a weakened tooth from breaking.
  • Cover dark tooth discolorations or stains.
  • Fix a chipped or cracked tooth.
  • Improve the appearance of an abnormally shaped tooth.
  • After a root canal.
  • To support a dental bridge.

Traditional Crowns VS CEREC

Traditional crowns are effective, but they require a multi-step treatment process. During your first appointment, your tooth is reshaped to allow the custom-made cap to be placed over it. An impression material is held in your mouth for several minutes so your dentist can get the measurements they need for your crown.

 

The impression is sent to an off-site dental lab to be crafted to meet your specifications. This can take a couple of weeks, so you will need a temporary crown in the meantime. After the lab sends your crown back to the office, you return for a second appointment to have it bonded to your tooth.

CEREC provides a simpler solution. After your tooth is prepared, your dentist in Fairhope takes a digital impression of your tooth. The highly detailed images integrate with CAD/CAM software, where the specifics for your restoration are established. The information is sent to our in-office milling machine to cut your crown from a single block of all-ceramic material. It is carefully crafted to meet your exact size, shape, and color needs. In less than 1 hour, it is ready to be bonded to your tooth. There is no need for a temporary crown or a second appointment.
