Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Our office is equipped with CEREC®, enabling us to offer same day dental crowns.

Same Day Dental Crowns or Partial Crowns In a Single Visit

Dental crowns are a great option for fixing damaged, decayed, or unattractive teeth. A crown is sometimes called a cap because it fits over a tooth, above the gum line, to completely cover it. In addition to addressing cosmetic issues, crowns can strengthen damaged teeth, restoring function to them. Crowns crafted from porcelain (ceramic) are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

What is CEREC®?

CEREC® stands for Ceramic Reconstruction and is a sophisticated system of designing and making high quality, metal-free dental restorations in a single patient visit. CEREC® utilizes 3D photography developed by Sirona and CAD/CAM technology to design a virtual restoration and can build the actual restoration while you are still in the chair.

Advantages

No unpleasant impression material

Say goodbye to biting on impression material for several minutes, having a numb mouth and jaw ache. Your dentist now has a camera that can capture your full dentition in seconds and then transfer this to the computer.

 

No bothersome temporary prosthesis

Temporary prostheses are exactly what the name suggests: temporary. With CEREC® the final prosthesis is inserted directly without any temporary compromises needed.

 

No follow-up appointment

CEREC® enables your dentist to insert esthetic ceramic crowns or partial crowns in a single session. The advantage of this is that only one appointment is necessary, which means only one injection, and then you can deal with other things than visits to the dentist.

 

Long-term stability

More than just a theory:  With CEREC® you can rely on quality that has been proven millions of times over in the practice. Furthermore, thanks to your new dental prosthesis made by CEREC®, your smile will be just as lovely many years later as it is directly after receiving the prosthesis.

 

Like a real tooth

  • Due to the translucency of ceramics, the dental prosthesis looks like a real tooth.
  • In a ceramic dental prosthesis, no dark edges are visible as is so often the case in conventional crowns.
  • Ceramic is very close to the hardness of the natural tooth, thus preventing wear of the tooth, which unfortunately so often occurs with other materials.
  • Ceramic is very well tolerated so allergic reactions are largely excluded. This is not the case with other methods and materials.
  • The CEREC® method is a gentle treatment for your teeth. Only the carious tooth surface is removed. The remaining healthy tooth substance is preserved.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth or range of teeth. Dental bridges are made up of abutments, usually two crowns, which support the pontic, or false tooth. The abutments usually are crowns fitted onto healthy teeth located on either side of the gap.

Procedure for Dental Bridges

To have a dental bridge fitted, the teeth that will act as abutments will be treated in the same process for crowns. During the second appointment, the completed custom-fitted bridge will be fitted onto the teeth. Further visits may be needed to ensure that the position and fit of the bridge is just right for you.

Caring for Crowns & Bridges

Although they may be prosthetics, crowns and bridges require the same level of care and hygiene as natural teeth. This means regular brushing and flossing, as well as routine check-ups. With the proper care, you’ll be able to use your crown or bridge for many years.
