Why Choose Boyles General Dentistry for Dental Crowns?

What is a Dental Crown?

Side-by-side comparison of tooth and dental implant

A dental crown is a prosthetic for a single tooth. It substitutes for the white enamel layer and is sometimes referred to as a cap. Although there are situations where a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown is necessary, porcelain or zirconia is the main material used. From this material, the exact shape of the tooth is carved out, replicating the real thing and restoring the tooth’s function and flawless appearance.

The Dental Crown Process

Regardless of how the crowns are fabricated, receiving one starts out the same way: the tooth must be treated or prepared. This could entail root canal treatment or merely removing a thin layer of enamel to make space for the crown. First, however, the area is numbed with a local anesthetic. After infected or damaged structure is removed, digital impressions are taken of the upper and lower teeth. This kind of system is much more accurate than old-fashioned putty impressions, and it’s more comfortable for you!

Traditionally, these impressions are sent to a lab, where technicians create the custom crown over a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, the patient wears a temporary restoration. Then, when the final product is finished, the patient returns to have the crown bonded in place.

With same-day crowns, we bring the lab to our office. Within about an hour, we can complete fabrication, which means you don’t have to wear a temporary crown or come back another time.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Crown

Without dental crowns, teeth with substantial decay or fracturing would otherwise have to be extracted. In many instances, crowns allow natural teeth to remain in the mouth. In other words, dental crowns offer a second chance for these teeth with a realistic prosthetic.

Using same-day CEREC crowns, you also enjoy receiving your restoration without waiting a few weeks without sacrificing quality. You also don’t have to deal with a temporary crown or goopy putty impressions, meaning you can have a smoother, faster experience and get back to normal life as quickly as possible.
