Regular exams are an important part of maintaining your oral health. During the exam, Dr. Davis looks for indications of tooth decay and assesses your overall oral health. She may recommend dental crowns for treatment of dental issues, such as:
- Tooth decay
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Replacement of metal (amalgam) fillings
Dr. Davis can restore your teeth in a single visit! Traditionally, when you needed a crown, it would take a minimum of two visits over the course of three weeks. It would require gunky impression material to make a model of your tooth. You had to wear a temporary crown, and it required a return visit for the placement of the permanent crown. With the CEREC technology, Dr. Davis makes the crown right in the office during your appointment. She has received extensive, post-doctoral training in creating custom crowns to improve your smile.
While you are in the treatment room, Dr. Davis prepares your tooth to receive the crown. Then she uses the state-of-the-art CEREC technology to create an image of your tooth so that the crown will fit precisely over your natural tooth to restore strength to your bite and improve the size and shape of the tooth to enhance your smile. No more gunky impression material to deal with because it’s all electronic. You will leave the office with a natural, aesthetically pleasing, tooth-colored crown that allows your bite to function normally and allows you to smile confidently without hesitation.
Your satisfaction is our top priority. As long as you maintain your recommended hygiene cleaning visits with us, the crown is guaranteed for five years for material failure!
