Fortunately, it doesn’t have to negatively affect your smile any longer with our same-day dental crowns. CEREC® dental crowns are a natural-looking, versatile cosmetic dental solution that can be used for a variety of applications. In this blog post, we’ll give an overview of dental crowns and situations when this treatment would be the right solution for you.

What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a cap that goes right over a damaged, decayed, or cosmetically imperfect tooth but looks like a healthy natural tooth. Its purpose is multifold: to restore your smile to full-functionality and aesthetic while also protecting the underlying tooth and jawbone from damage.

Do I Need a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a fantastic solution if you need to fix a tooth that is chipped, cracked, or severely damaged by decay. While some cavities can be cleaned out and repaired with a simple filling, advanced decay can leave your tooth too weak to support a filling. In these cases, a crown will be necessary to restore strength and function after root canal therapy. Or if you want to rejuvenate your smile for cosmetic reasons, crowns can cover teeth that are severely discolored, misshapen, inconsistently sized, or unevenly worn. Additionally, crowns can top off dental implants and replace a row of missing teeth with a dental bridge.
