With a crown, if you have a tooth that's really broken down or has a really large cavity already, we're not able to just fill that tooth. The material's not strong enough to withstand the forces of chewing and biting that we do day to day. So a crown is just going to cover that tooth up. Get rid of all the decay first and then put something on there that's going to look really nice and feel really comfortable for them.
Bridges are really similar to crowns, but we use those in situations where patients are missing a tooth or two and we're able to crown the teeth around it and give them something that’s going to fill in that space, that's just going to look like it did before.
Our CEREC same-day crowns:
- Are manufactured in a single visit to our office
- Repair a variety of dental damage, from a broken tooth to a severely decayed one
- Are made of durable, natural-looking porcelain
- Can replace a missing tooth, when attached to a dental implant
- Can anchor a dental bridge
- Protect teeth from further damage
- Can seal a tooth after a root canal
If you think you need a dental crown, call 423-454-2181.
Get Your Crown in Just One Appointment With CEREC
Most dentists outsource production of dental crowns to an outside lab. This means you’ll wait several days, or even longer, for your dental restoration. Our dentists use CEREC 3-D software to design your crown and then a milling machine to manufacture it right in our office. You’ll walk out with a beautiful new porcelain crown in just one visit. There’s no need to wear a temporary crown! If you’d prefer, we can also have zirconia crowns made for you at an outside lab. Either way, your durable restoration should last for many years.
With or Without Implants, Replace Teeth With a Dental Bridge
A dental bridge can replace one tooth or several teeth in a row. A traditional fixed bridge is attached to dental crowns. This usually means we’ll need to use your surrounding teeth to support the crowns. To avoid modifying healthy teeth, we can use dental implants instead. This not only keeps the structure of healthy teeth intact, it provides stimulation that helps avoid bone loss in your jaw.
