A Dental Crown is used to rebuild a broken or decayed tooth, usually in order to make it stronger and last longer. Dental crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth. Dental crowns are sometimes called ‘caps’, because they entirely cap or cover the tooth’s enamel.
How a crown is made:
Care of crowns:
CEREC, short for Ceramic Reconstruction, is a process for creating a high- quality porcelain restoration using 3D technology to create a colour-matched and highly durable customised ceramic crown. Rather than multiple visits to the dentist, CEREC crowns can be applied in a single appointment with a duration of approximately one and a half hours.
Why choose a Cerec crown?
If a crown has been recommended for you, it is generally because a tooth has weakened to the point where, without the protection of a crown, it is likely to fracture or break, possibly beyond repair. A severely fractured tooth cannot be repaired and must be removed. The placement of a crown is often done as a means of preventing the loss of a tooth. Our dentists work closely with carefully selected dental technicians to create strong, beautiful and functional crowns for our patients.
