Crowns & Bridges
What is a Crown?
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and form. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure and is indicated when the tooth cannot be restored with conventional filling.
Although there are several types of crowns, Falls Family Dental recommends a strong and highly durable ceramic material called Lithium Discillicate. Our office creates crowns to match the shape, size and color of your existing teeth, giving you a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
Reasons for Getting a Crown:
- Indicated after root canal treatment
- Chipped, broken or cracked tooth
- Repair a large filling that is decayed
Getting a Crown Means?
Dr. Fabry uses the latest technology to create a crown in one visit. His in-office CEREC milling machine sculpts a perfectly shaped crown from hard, durable material. Because the crown is created in a single visit, there is no need to leave his office with a temporary tooth.
Having placed thousands of CEREC crowns, Dr. Fabry is considered an expert. He prefers the customization offered by creating and then finishing the CEREC milled crowns in-office.
Why Use a Computerized Milling Machine?
Repairing teeth can be extremely complicated with various impressions and temporary fillings taking considerable time. Now this can be achieved in just one visit.
How does the CEREC computer restoration system work? After your tooth is prepared, it’s scanned with an electronic camera that allows you to see the image on a video screen. The restoration is designed from this scan and then milled from a solid ceramic block.
