Smile Solutions Redefined
with CEREC® Crowns and Bridges

A dental crown, also known as a tooth cap, is a protective and reinforcing solution for a compromised tooth unsuitable for restoration using fillings, inlays, or onlays. After a root canal procedure, a dental crown becomes essential due to the heightened vulnerability of the tooth following the removal of infected dental pulp, reducing the risk of fractures. Dental crowns can also enhance the appearance of teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or misaligned. On the other hand, a dental bridge effectively fills the void left by a missing tooth, supported by crowns on either side to prevent neighboring teeth from shifting and maintaining overall dental functionality.

Embracing advancements like CEREC technology, you now have innovative alternatives to traditional crowns and bridges for concerns such as missing, chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth.

Two Steps to a Perfect Smile

Conventional crowns and bridges typically involve a two-step process, necessitating two separate visits to the dental clinic. In the initial appointment, the targeted area is anesthetized for a single tooth or multiple teeth before gentle reshaping occurs on the top and sides to create ample space for the upcoming crown(s). The removal of any tooth decay is performed, and the tooth structure is carefully restored to provide optimal support for the crown(s).

A traditional technique involves using a somewhat cumbersome and sometimes uncomfortable dental putty. This substance takes approximately five minutes to set and is utilized to obtain an impression. This critical step ensures the precise fit of both your temporary and permanent dental crowns, ensuring a comfortable bite and enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. After this initial phase, a temporary crown is positioned, allowing you to continue your daily activities until your next visit. This follow-up visit is scheduled after the dental lab completes the fabrication of your permanent crown, which generally spans 10–14 days. Typically, minor adjustments, such as occlusal fine-tuning, are made to the final crown to ensure an optimal fit and function.
