A crown is a porcelain “cap” that surrounds your tooth, making it stronger so that it won’t fracture. Crowns look and feel natural, and are stronger than your natural teeth. Crowns are necessary when teeth develop fractures or have very large fillings that weaken your teeth. With our same day procedure we use a computer to scan your tooth. This means no more disgusting impression material in your mouth. We then digitally develop your crown using your bite, and mill your new crown out of very strong porcelain. The crown is usually able to seat in under two hours. No need for a temporary that can come off, or a second visit. This amazing technology has changed the way we practice dentistry.
