Dental crowns are one of the most reliable restorative dentistry treatments. These tooth-shaped prosthetics can correct many types of structural damage and restore your dental function. In many cases, crowns can also enhance the appearance of your smile by replacing a damaged tooth. Thanks to modern technology, the dental crowning process is more effective and efficient than ever before. At Elite Dental Care, with offices in Germantown, Trenton, and Jackson, TN, we offer an onsite milling system to place strong, beautiful crowns in a single visit. To learn more about dental crowns, contact our practice today.
Your crown will be custom-designed to match the adjacent teeth, and it will extend all the way to the gum line. Because your restoration will fully encapsulate your tooth, it can repair even very severe damage. Your doctor may recommend a crown to correct many concerns, including:
To place a crown, your dentist will first need to reshape your tooth. This will enable him to remove damaged or decayed tissues and create room for the crown so that it looks natural and fits securely. Our dentists use very conservative techniques and will never remove more tissue than necessary.
When he has completed the preparatory process, your doctor will use our E4D CAD/CAM technology to take digital impressions of your tooth. These images will be much more precise than traditional impressions, and you will not have to deal with messy, uncomfortable molds. Your doctor will then adjust the images, using them to design your custom crown. He will upload the designs to our in-office milling machine, and typically in an hour or less, the system will produce your customized crown. After making any adjustments to ensure that it fits correctly, your dentist will secure it to your tooth.
Dental porcelain can be color-matched to the surrounding teeth for a seamless integration into your smile.
Though we can typically provide same-made crowns, some cases require that we send your impression to a partnering dental lab for fabrication. Our dental lab offers crowns made from a wide-range of materials, including porcelain, zirconia, IPS e.max®, and porcelain-fused-to-metal.
Of course, the primary advantage of same-day crowns is that your treatment can be completed quickly. You will not have to schedule multiple visits to our office or have a temporary restoration placed. Same-day crowns also offer several cosmetic benefits. Dental porcelain can be color-matched to the surrounding teeth for a seamless integration into your smile. Any adjustments to the shading or fit of your crown can be made in our office during the same appointment.
If you have suffered severe damage or are missing a tooth, please contact our office today to schedule your restorative consultation.
