Dental crowns are often part of a variety of different dental procedures including root canals and dental bridges. They are also often recommended to replace the chewing surface of a tooth after a tooth has had severe decay or cracks and chips.

While traditional dental crowns require multiple visits to the dentist’s office, modern-day technology allows offices like ours to provide same-day dental crowns. If you are interested in making a dental appointment with our team, please give us a call or use our form below.

CEREC Crowns Q & A

What are CEREC® crowns?

A dental crown is a replacement for part of your tooth. In the same way that a filling replaces a decayed section of your tooth, a dental crown replaces a larger section. In order for a dental crown to be installed, the tooth has to be reshaped to connect to the crown. Because of this, dental crowns have to be custom-made in order to fit your tooth. During the process a section of your tooth is removed, measurements are taken, and then a crown is created and installed later on. While the crown is being created, a temporary crown is usually installed to cover your tooth until the custom crown is finished.

What is a CEREC crowns used for?

Dental crowns are synthetic caps that attach to the tooth. Where a filling is a synthetic material that is placed in a small cavity or hole in a tooth, a crown is a replacement for the top or chewing surface of a tooth. There are a few reasons a crown might be recommended. They include:

  • Damage To The Tooth: The most obvious reason you might need a crown is damage to the tooth. A crack or a chip caused by an injury or other issues might be a reason to have a dental crown installed. Similarly, dental decay that has progressed past a small cavity might cause the need for a dental crown.
  • Root Canal: Sometimes the process of a root canal requires the replacement of a significant portion of the tooth.
  • Dental Bridges: Dental bridges hold a false tooth or a group of adjacent false teeth in place between healthy existing teeth. The anchors for these bridges are often dental crowns.
