What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is often referred to as a “cap” because it consists of a porcelain or porcelain and metal shell which completely covers a damaged tooth. Once tooth decay has advanced to the point of compromising the structure and integrity of a tooth, it cannot be restored with a dental filling. A dental crown is constructed to cover the remaining healthy tooth structure, protect it, restore its strength and restore the natural beauty of your tooth.

Utilizing advanced cosmetic dental techniques and technology, Dr. Cannon offers his busy patients a high tech alternative to traditional dental crowns. Stronger and more natural looking, the CEREC dental crowns he offers can be prepared and completed in a single office visit. These high tech dental crowns are milled from a single solid piece of porcelain, increasing their strength and delivering exceptional natural beauty.

Dental Crown Procedure

Dental crowns are available in a number of varieties and are customized to meet the needs of each individual patient. If a dental crown is the best treatment option for you, Dr. Cannon will explain which treatment method is indicated for your situation. Dr. Cannon creates crowns constructed from all porcelain. With dental crowns, the decayed portion of the tooth is removed and the tooth is reshaped in order to accept a dental crown. Once the tooth is prepared, digital imaging is used in order to determine the exact dimensions of the tooth. No messy and uncomfortable impressions are needed when you have a crown made by Dr. Cannon. Your permanent crown is constructed using our CEREC laser accurate milling equipment, while you relax. Your permanent crown is placed in the same day with no need for a temporary crown. Dr. Cannon’s high tech methods reduce the time it takes to provide you with beautiful, natural looking results and strong, durable dental crowns.
