Crowns, commonly referred to as caps, are a procedure that includes the reshaping of an entire tooth, reducing it in size by approximately 25%, then covering it with a natural-appearing, ceramic crown. A dental crown can be used to replace a chipped, broken, decayed, misaligned, or discolored tooth. It can add strength and color stability to otherwise compromised teeth. In our office, in most cases, we utilize CEREC® technology to create life-like ceramic crowns in a single visit.

CEREC® 3D is a new technology that is used to replace failing restorations, broken teeth and old mercury fillings with beautiful full ceramic fillings or crowns in just one visit. CEREC® uses CAD/CAM technology, incorporating a camera, computer, and milling machine all in one instrument.
Using a special camera, the dentist takes a precise digital image of the prepared tooth, avoiding the traditional physical impression. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer monitor where the CEREC specialist design the restoration by 3D CAD technology.
Then CAM takes over and automatically creates the life-like porcelain restoration right in our office, while our patients enjoy a few minutes for business calls, emails or relaxation. Finally, the dentist bonds the restoration to the surface of the prepared tooth producing a “new” tooth that rejuvenates the smile instantly.
