Crowns are artificial caps, generally made of a material like porcelain, put on the top of a tooth.

Crowns are generally used to fix a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has ended up being so advanced that huge portions of the tooth should be removed, crowns are typically used to restore the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid a cracked tooth from becoming worse, connect bridges, cover implants, or an existing filling is at risk of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve as a visual use, and are used when a discolored or stained tooth has to be restored to its natural look.

Procedures

A tooth should generally be decreased in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made of the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent out to a special lab, which manufactures a custom-designed crown. In many cases, a short-term crown is applied up until the long-term crown is prepared. Permanent crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are in some cases confused with veneers, but they are fairly different. Veneers are usually applied only to relatively little areas.

Taking care of Your Crowns

With proper care, a good quality crown might last as much as eight years or longer. It is crucial to floss in the area of the crown to prevent excess plaque or collection of particles around the restoration.

Specific habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) substantially shorten the life of a crown. Furthermore, consuming brittle foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, or even damage the crown.

Same Day Tooth Restorations

CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital imagery of locations needing restoration and produce the appropriate restoration on the spot.

With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in simply one visit. We will design and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office. You no longer need to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the laboratory to produce your crown.

CEREC can be used for a full range of indications: anterior crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, partial crowns and posterior crowns.

Ultrasonic Teeth Cleaning

We use ultrasonic scalers for a lot of adult dental cleanings. These devices utilize ultrasonic vibrations to help breakdown the plaque and calculus on the teeth that trigger gingivitis and periodontal disease. The ultrasonic cleaners produce tiny bubbles that implode on the surface of the tooth, killing microorganisms and eliminating plaque and tartar at the same time. Our instruments use a thin tip to better navigate in the periodontal pockets to help maintain optimal gingival health.


  • The treatment only uses water, no chemicals are used.

  • It can get rid of tartar buildup in hard-to-reach areas, without any damage to the tooth enamel.

  • Manual scaling typically uses pressure for cleaning, while the vibration produced by the scaling tip of an ultrasonic scaler is hardly perceptible. This makes ultrasonic cleaning ideal to those with vulnerable teeth.

  • The cleaning procedure is faster than manual scaling making your visit more comfortable.


After your teeth have actually been cleaned with the ultrasonic cleaner, your teeth will be hand scaled to check for any residual deposits then polished.
