A prosthetic crown can restore a heavily-damaged tooth to prevent further damage. It improves the appearance of the tooth while maintaining its functions.
What is a dental crown?
A crown is a permanent single (or partial) dental prosthesis that resembles a small hat. It is custom-made so that it fits the tooth precisely and perfectly matches your natural teeth.
Crowns can be made using different materials such as resin, porcelain, ceramic, metal or a ceramic-metal alloy. This type of restoration is solid, beautiful-looking and lasts about 10 years.
Situations requiring a crown:
- After a root canal
- To cover a large filling
- Broken or cracked tooth
- Discoloured, misshapen or misaligned tooth
Just one appointment needed
Dr. Malouf’s clinic uses CEREC technology to create ceramic crowns using computer-assisted design in just a few steps:
- A digital impression is made of your tooth
- The tooth is prepped
- A digital impression is made of the prepped tooth
- A 3D model of the restoration is created on the computer
- The ceramic piece is milled
- The restoration is installed
This approach enables ceramic prostheses to be ready in just one appointment. You’ll immediately feel better, without the need for a second appointment.
