If a damaged tooth requires a very large filling, Dr. Lenz or Dr. Mueller may apply a dental crown to the tooth. These tooth-shaped caps are cemented into place to restore the shape, strength and appearance of severely damaged teeth. Crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes or to cover a dental implant.
What to Expect
At Uptown Dental, we can restore a tooth with a crown in a single visit, thanks to the CEREC technology for creating ceramic crowns in our office. Quick, convenient and affordable, these crowns rely on computer-assisted design and computer-aided manufacturing to create your tooth restoration in minutes, while you rest in the dental chair. This skips several steps of the traditional crown creation process, including:
- Taking impressions of your teeth
- Sending the impressions to a facility to be made
- Paying for and living with a temporary crown
- Waiting several weeks for your final crown
It means fewer visits for you, which means less pain and anesthesia, and most importantly—more immediate results. Get a crown created and placed in one visit at Uptown Dental.
