Many people are affected by teeth that are chipped, cracked, broken or discoloured, some to a point of feeling unconfident or embarrassed. After carefully examining your unique situation, your dentist may recommend treatment with a dental crown. A crown is custom-made to replicate the shape, size, and appearance of a damaged tooth, and is fixed into place for years of stability.
Dental crowns have been used for many years to restore strength and beauty to smiles after a tooth has been damaged by a large cavity, fracture, or root canal therapy. Crowns are beneficial after the treatment of the root canal because the original tooth structure may become brittle in the absence of a healthy nerve in the tooth. A crown will fully cover a tooth, making the structure durable for chewing.
For many years, dental crowns were fabricated from gold or metal alloy. We realise there are galvanic and corrosion issues associated with use of metals in the mouth, so we have moved to ceramic use of Emax CEREC designed crowns. Emax CEREC crowns are made with a stronger, more durable material.
The Smile in Style practices are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for quick and effective treatments. Dental crowns can be made in a single visit with our CEREC milling machine. CEREC crowns are not only ready in minutes, but are crafted with great precision, leading to a customised fit that lasts for years. After a single office visit, your new crown will be in place, and will fit suitably so as to blend perfectly with surrounding teeth.
Dental crowns are made to last for many years with proper care. With sustained oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings, your smile can remain healthy and beautiful.
