What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns, often referred to as caps, are tooth-shaped restorations that we place over weak or damaged teeth to restore their health and function. 

Dr. Watson may recommend a crown for the following reasons: 

  • To restore a tooth with deep decay that a traditional cavity cannot restore
  • To reinforce a tooth with a large filling
  • To protect a tooth after undergoing a root canal treatment
  • To strengthen a weak or damaged tooth
  • To repair a tooth worn due to chronic grinding and clenching (bruxism)
  • To relieve pain resulting from cracked tooth syndrome
  • To replace one or more missing teeth by covering a dental implant or supporting a dental bridge 
  • To make cosmetic modifications by improving the size, shape, color, or overall appearance of a tooth 

What Is CEREC Technology?

At Hebron Family Dentistry, we offer CEREC crowns, a groundbreaking innovation that has transformed the dental crown process. CEREC stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.” The state-of-the-art technology allows us to create high-quality ceramic crowns in just one dental visit. 

The CEREC system uses computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technologies to design and create dental restorations right here at our Hebron office. We capture virtual models of your crown without the need for messy impressions. Our on-site milling unit will use this information to create your restoration from a single ceramic block with incredible precision. Our aesthetic restorations mimic the function and appearance of your teeth, leaving you with a natural-looking and feeling smile. 

What Are the Advantages of CEREC Crowns?

  • Same-Day Restoration: One of the most significant advantages of CEREC technology is the ability to provide same-day restorations. A patient can come into our office with a damaged tooth and walk away with a fully restored smile in just one appointment, saving time and reducing inconvenience.
  • Precise Fit: CEREC uses digital impressions to create precise 3D models of the tooth, ensuring an accurate fit for the crown. This precision lowers the risk of complications and enhances the overall effectiveness of the restoration.
  • Natural Aesthetics: We manufacture CEREC crowns from high-quality ceramic materials that closely mimic the natural color and translucency of your tooth enamel. That results in restorations that blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, delivering a natural-looking smile.
  • Durable and Long-Lasting: CEREC crowns are known for their durability and longevity. The high-quality materials and precise manufacturing process deliver restorations that can withstand the forces of daily biting and chewing, enhancing your smile for many years to come.
