Dental Crowns Serving Cincinnati, OH
Dental crowns perform a range of functions in dentistry, beyond stabilizing a tooth after a major cavity. Crowns are permanent caps that extend the life of a weakened tooth. When bonded to a tooth, this long-lasting protective cover hides flaws, discoloration, cracks and chips, and can act as a strong anchor for dental bridges. Even as a crown fortifies a compromised tooth, it enhances your oral health and improves the appearance of your smile.
What Our Crowns Are Made Of
The materials we choose for your crown are made of 100 percent porcelain. Most of the crown procedures in our clinic are done with CEREC technology. This allows you to have your crown done in just one visit that only takes two hours! No temporary crown, no second visit, and we only need to use local anesthesia one time. Our goal is to make our patient experience the best possible, and we value your convenience!
Dental Crown Placement Timeline
The process of crowning your tooth begins with an exam and digital imaging, followed by a slight reshaping of the tooth. This is done using local anesthetic, and is necessary to ensure your new crown will fit well when it is bonded to the tooth.
With a traditional dental crown procedure, the affected tooth is capped with a temporary acrylic crown that a patient wears until the next appointment. In the interim, the permanent crown is manufactured at a laboratory that specializes in dental restorations, using the measurements and models supplied by the dentist.
CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
In addition to performing thousands of traditional dental crown procedures, our doctors are highly skilled in using the newest computer-aided design and manufacturing technology to offer patients the convenience of same-day crowns. We invite you to review our section on this convenient option, made possible by the advanced in-office CEREC system that Pearce Dental Group uses to fabricate resilient, well-fitting crowns.
The Results of Your New Crowns
With either a traditional or same-day procedure, you can be confident that your new crown will look and feel completely natural. Matching the color of your existing teeth is part of the measurement process, ensuring your crown blends in perfectly with adjacent teeth. Your new crown will be completely at home in your mouth, as noticeable to you and to others as a filling would be.
