What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown will be designed to complement the shape and shade of your natural teeth. It will fit right on top of your existing tooth. Dr. Wall may recommend a crown in the following situations:

  • You have a very large cavity that is too big for a filling.

  • Your tooth is severely weakened or has a large crack.

  • Your tooth has dramatic cosmetic blemishes, such as intrinsic staining.

  • Your tooth is worn or misshapen.

  • Your irregularly shaped tooth affects your bite, increasing your risk for TMJ disorder.

Same-Day Crowns Made with CEREC® Technology

Before placing a crown, Dr. Wall will reshape your tooth. He will remove damaged material and create a strong base for the restoration. Then he will take three-dimensional digital impressions of your tooth. Using state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology, he will design a custom crown that will blend seamlessly with your other teeth. Dr. Wall will then upload the designs into our CEREC® machine. The CEREC® system works much like a 3-D printer. Usually in under an hour, it will generate a crown from a solid block of porcelain. When your crown is complete, Dr. Wall will make sure it fits correctly, and he will attach it to your tooth.

The Benefits of Same-Day Crowns

Traditional crowns are made at a dental lab, and it will be several weeks before you receive your final restoration. Same-day crowns can speed your treatment and spare you the hassle of an unstable temporary restoration. CEREC® crowns can also protect your overall dental health. These restorations will be tailor-made using highly precise measurements. Dr. Wall can make minute adjustments to even out the force along your dental arch. As an expert in neuromuscular dentistry, he can prevent undue pressure on your jaw and reduce your risk for TMJ Disorder. Finally, CEREC® crowns are remarkably durable and natural looking. The system uses medical-grade porcelain that has a natural sheen and sparkle. Plus, you will be in the office during the design process, so Dr. Wall can match the color of the porcelain to your natural teeth.
