Dental CrownsAn Overview
Amherst dentist Dr. Karl Neuhaus restores decayed, structurally unsound teeth and replaces existing restorations with custom dental crowns that look and feel like natural teeth. We also offer same-day dental crowns using advanced CAD/CAM technology.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown sometimes called a tooth cap or tooth crown is used to restore cracked teeth, crooked teeth, and teeth that have been compromised by cavities. The dental crown covers the entire tooth, like a cap, and is permanently cemented into place.
About Porcelain Dental Crowns
There are many materials that a dentist can choose from for creating a dental crown. In most cases, the dentists at Creekside Dentistry choose porcelain dental crowns because of their superior aesthetics and long-term durability.
Benefits of Porcelain Dental Crowns
- Metal free – do not cause discoloration along the gum line like conventional metal dental caps
- Extremely natural looking – porcelain dental crowns are made of layers of fine ceramic material, to match natural tooth enamel
- Long lasting – porcelain dental crowns are highly durable, as well as stain-resistant, meaning they will last for years to come
Same Day Dental Crowns with CEREC
Creekside Dentistry offers the convenience of same-day dental crown placement or repair using CEREC, an advanced CAD/CAM technology that enables Dr. Neuhaus to complete all phases of the crown process in our Amherst dentist office.
Using digital impressions, 3-D imaging, and in-office ceramic milling, we can address your dental health or cosmetic-related concern during a single visit. CEREC crowns are made from high-quality ceramic or porcelain which is highly durable and will last for many years.
