A crown or ‘cap’ is placed on an individual tooth to restore its shape, size, strength and to improve its appearance. When bonded into place, a crown fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth. Crowns can be made from different materials including porcelain, zirconia, gold or a combination thereof. The most common types of crowns we place are all-porcelain and metal free.
Having your crown designed and placed by our team has many benefits. Our 3D Smile Design Technology allows us to preview new smile could look like in about 30 minutes. The on-site cosmetic team have the experience and the technology to design your ideal smile. An intraoral digital (3Shape Trios or CEREC AC) scanner replaces the need for dental impressions and gives us an incredibly precise 3D model of your teeth.
Cad-Cam technology can not only make your crown more accurately, it can also produce it faster as well. For example, our onsite Cerec AC CAD/CAM technology enables us to create a new crown for our patients in about an hour!
