What are dental crowns?
A dental crown, or dental cap as it is sometimes called, is a dental restoration that covers the entire tooth to strengthen a tooth that has been weakened. It looks, feels, and functions like your natural tooth.
CEREC ceramic crowns make it possible to repair a broken tooth to natural look and feel in just a single-visit. They do not stain, are wear-resistant, and very long-lasting.
When is a dental crown needed?
A tooth is considered to be weakened when a considerable portion of it has been replaced with filling material, usually due to a large cavity or a root canal.
Teeth with large fillings that replace entire cusps or undermine cusps of teeth are best crowned before they break apart.
A dental crown is also needed when a tooth is cracked.
