Restore your beautiful smile!
If a troublesome tooth is preventing you from enjoying your smile, a dental crown might be the perfect solution. Dental crowns are a reliable way to repair damaged or weakened teeth. Spring Creek Dental offers traditional crowns in order to restore the functionality and appearance of your smile.
Custom-fit to your mouth and enamel.
A crown is a fixed prosthetic device that is cemented onto an existing tooth and functions exactly like a real tooth. Our office is equipped with Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC), an advanced CAD/CAM technology that allows us to create your custom crown, perfectly shaded to match your natural teeth, during your appointment right in the office.
While this method is efficient, it may not be for everyone. Dr. Guttery will work together with you to determine what method best suits you based on your individual needs.
A crown may be recommended for:
- Restoring a broken tooth
- Strengthening or reinforcing a weak tooth
- Replacing a large filling
- Covering a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
- Supporting a bridge
- Preventing future infections following a root canal
- Covering a dental implant
- Cosmetic necessities
What to Expect
After you arrive at the office and get prepared for your procedure, Dr. Guttery will use an Intra-Oral scanner to take photos of your teeth to create a digital impression. The impression is sent to the CAD/CAM software machine that then creates a digital tooth restoration. The finished restoration is sent to a milling machine that creates the physical crown out of a ceramic block. This process only takes about 15 minutes. Dr. Guttery will then polish and shade match the completed crown before cementing it to your tooth.
