CEREC® dental crowns
Cerec Dentist in oklahoma city
Custom-designed crowns preserve the natural beauty of your smile. In addition to providing a strong buffer against the forces of chewing, a metal-less crown preserves the natural beauty of the smile. What makes CEREC dental crowns different? They are metal-less, custom-designed by a CEREC dentist, last for 15 or more years, and do not show a dark line where tooth structure meets gums.
CEREC crowns are the preferred crown choice for the patient who wants to complete treatment in a single visit with no temporary crowns. Our CEREC crowns replicate existing tooth anatomy, achieving excellent bite and functionality, each custom crown is artfully crafted for each patient.
A CEREC Dentist Can CREATE a custom crown WHILE YOU SIT IN THE CHAIR
Our high-speed camera captures thousands of images per second. These images are then weaved together by the computer to create a 3D computer model. We use this model to create a replica of your tooth in the form of a crown.
The crown is then custom stained, glazed, and placed into a porcelain oven to give it strength and sheen. Once the crown is completed, it is bonded to the tooth and treatment is complete. The restoration is evaluated on the tooth & modified if necessary for bite and fit. And it all happens in one appointment.
A dental bridge is one way in which a missing tooth may be replaced. It is crafted by a master ceramist with precise attention to detail. An artificial tooth replaces your missing tooth. A dental bridge can last more than a decade.
Dental bridges cannot be made by the CEREC machine and do require multiple appointments.
Fixed bridges are designed with two dental crowns, each of which is affixed to the two adjacent teeth (or alternatively, to dental implants) on both sides of the missing tooth. The artificial tooth is fixed between the two crowns, forming a “bridge.”
