When a tooth has become moderately to severely damaged, Dr. Everett Eklund, our skilled dentist, may suggest a dental crown. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that completely encase a damaged tooth up to the gum line. They are most often used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance. We offer dental crowns to:
- Attach a dental bridge
- Complete a dental implant
- Strengthen a fractured or weakened tooth
- Protect and support an existing filling that is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated
- Improve the function and appearance of an irregularly shaped tooth
- Restore a discolored tooth to its original appearance
Crowns are most often made from porcelain or porcelain fused to metal to ensure you maintain a natural, attractive aesthetic. In the past, it took multiple appointments and weeks of waiting before your final crown was available for placement. Thanks to CEREC technology, one of the latest advances in dental technology, Potomac Dental Centre is able to design, create, and place your dental crown in a single visit. Dental crowns produced by CEREC technology are often referred to by a number of names, including same-day crowns, one-day crowns, and single-visit crowns. With CEREC, the process to receive your dental restoration is quick and effective.
