Dental crowns can effectively repair and support partly or extensively damaged teeth. A crown is a tooth shaped 'cap' which is placed over a tooth or remaining tooth structures.
There are a range of crowns available. Permanent crowns can be made from all metal (such as gold alloy or white zirconia), all porcelain, or a combination of both.
Strength and aesthetic appearance varies according to the option. All metal crowns provide the greatest strength. All ceramic or all porcelain crowns are a very popular option, as they provide the best natural look. And with the latest breakthroughs in porcelain technology these, often preferred, tooth coloured crowns, can now be successfully placed on individual back teeth.
These tooth coloured crowns are also known as porcelain crowns, and are quick and easy to fit all in a single dental treatment.
Cerec crowns often provide the perfect solution to restoring damaged tooth/teeth, while maintaining the natural aesthetic appearance and functionality of the tooth/teeth.
Approach and Treatment
- Cerec crowns are designed and manufactured on-site all in the one appointment session.
- We remove any aged, cracked filling, and/or damaged tooth and fully prepare the contour of the tooth for the new tooth coloured crown/cap
- The Cerec crown is then bonded to your tooth/teeth, ensuring a tight and effective fit to contour of the tooth
- Immediately after the session you can eat and drink. It’s that quick and that easy!
- Cerec crowns can be fitted to the tooth/teeth all in a single treatment, as your Cerec crown is designed and manufactured on-site using Cerec ‘cad cam’ technology
- Compared to traditional crowns, there’s now no need to have an initial dental appointment, and then return to replace your temporary crown with the permanent fitting
- With Cerec crowns no impressions are needed. Cerec crowns use a 3D digital scan while conventional crowns need impressions
- They are aesthetically appealing, with the ceramic/porcelain crown material being tooth coloured
- It’s an ideal solution for replacing unsightly amalgam fillings, whether it’s purely for visual improvement, or you are replacing cracked, aged, or weakened amalgam fillings
- With the Cerec approach, we can preserve as much of the structure of your healthy tooth/teeth, therefore taking a minimally invasive approach
- With Cerec, it provides the ultimate approach in dental restoration, while maintaining the strength of your natural tooth/teeth.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding with a surgical or invasive procedure, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
