Tooth Colored Crowns

When a tooth is cracked, decayed or damaged, a dental crown may need to be fitted for the tooth.  A dental crown is a permanent covering that fits over the original tooth and can be made of porcelain, gold or a combination of both materials.

One of the greatest developments in dentistry over the last 20 years has been newer, stronger and natural looking porcelain materials.  That in addition to advances to bonding agents and cements has made conservative bonded crowns that more of your natural tooth both possible and beautiful.

These advancements have made tooth colored crowns stronger than ever before, providing the durability you need for eating many different types of food.  And what’s better than only needing ONE appointment for a custom-manufactured crown just for you?

The Beauty of Single Visit Restorative Dentistry

CEREC was the world’s first system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. For you, this means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.

So, why are thousands of people world wide choosing the CEREC restorative technique for their dental needs?

Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist.  This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken and a temporary restoration put on your tooth.  You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary crown removed (if it hasn’t fallen off already), and have a permanent restoration put on.

Why go to the dentist a second time when you don’t have to? With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish.  Dr. Miller prepares a model of your tooth using CAD/CAM technology and mills the tooth from a solid ceramic block in the office — all during your one, single appointment.

A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy.  Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than gold,  amalgam and other metals.

With CEREC, Dr. Miller can use strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty and function.  These materials closely match the properties of natural tooth structure.  This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates.

The materials are chemically bonded to your tooth so Dr. Miller can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens and prevents future damage to your tooth.

Dr. Miller can use CEREC for more than just crowns and fillings.  CEREC is capable of producing any single tooth restoration.  Chipped or discolored front teeth can be repaired with beautiful single visit porcelain anterior crowns or veneers.  Your smile makes a lasting first impression, why not enhance it?

Worldwide, a CEREC restoration is placed every 20 seconds.  With a history of experience of more than 30 years, this technology has helped dentists place over 7 million restorations.  Using metal free materials that are the closest to your natural enamel, single visit CEREC treatments gives you the highest quality restorative care possible.
