Dental crowns are one of the most common and effective methods to restore a damaged tooth and improve its appearance. This permanent dental prosthetic covers the entire tooth above the gumline and feels like a natural tooth. Crowns are very useful in repairing chips, cracks, and severe tooth decay, and are often the final stage in root canal therapy. In addition, they are used as the finishing touch in most dental implant cases.
At Imagine Advanced Dental Arts, our skilled cosmetic dentists use the most advanced techniques and materials available, including the revolutionary zirconia crowns, noted for their attractive translucent color and perfectly natural appearance. Cut from a solid crystal block, the restoration material is allergen-free, long lasting and virtually indestructible to give you the natural look and feel of your own teeth at their very best.
We offer CEREC 3-D milling technology to provide you with same-day dental restorations in less time with beautiful results.
CEREC One Visit Crowns
An exciting new technology allows you to enjoy gorgeous, durable, natural-looking smile restoration, without the wait!
In the past, patients had to make multiple appointments to visit the dentist if they wanted crowns or onlays. At last, a breakthrough technology is offered by a select group of dental practices across America. We are proud to be amongst the first to boast CEREC® 3D, an advanced computerized milling system that creates long-lasting, natural-looking crowns, fillings and onlays in the same day, right in our office, and often in under two hours!
How It Works
The advanced CEREC® technology actually preserves more of the natural structure of your teeth than traditional methods, leaving you with a restoration that is both beautiful and durable. CEREC® even employs a unique adhesive bonding structure that seals the ceramic more securely than any other dental cement, leaving no risk of infection!
Our advanced CEREC® unit utilizes CAD/CAM technology that provides crowns and partial crowns for patients in one day. To begin the process, the prepared tooth is designed after images of the original tooth are taken with a special camera. The tooth is then captured on a computer screen which creates a 3D model so you can see what your tooth will look like. Once the design is finalized, it is sent to our milling unit, where it will be crafted from a solid block of porcelain. Your customized crown or partial crown is carved from this porcelain block, and then placed on the prepared tooth. The crown is color-matched to your surrounding teeth for a nice and natural-looking blend.
