Dental Crowns in Belair, MD

Cracks or chips in a tooth not only lead to further damage down the road, they can make you feel embarrassed of your smile. When the structure of the tooth is threatened, a filling is insufficient to prevent further decay. A dental crown is a "cap" that completely covers the tooth to the line of your gums, strengthening it and providing a sturdy base for other dental work.

What a Dental Crown can do for you

A dental crown will serve the purpose of not only looking natural but also protecting the tooth from further decay it also has the ability to hold a worn down tooth together and possibly keeping the tooth from breaking or breaking further. A crown is just as cosmetically important as it is structurally, a lot of times a crown can be used to cover a dental implant or a misshaped or discolored tooth. The good thing about advancements in dental technology today is now when you are in need of a crown you can get it done the same day.

Advanced Digital Crowns for Same Day Service

Porcelain crowns usually take two or three visits to prepare, but advances in 3D printing technology have allowed for same-day digital crowns in some cases. 3D dental printing is one of the most exciting dental innovations in recent years, and our practice has made the investment in the CEREC™ system. This computer-assisted system takes the exact measurements of the tooth needed for reconstruction, processes it, and then outputs a custom-fit crown for installation.

This entire process can be completed over the course of one office visit, and provides several advantages. The optical impression creates an exact replica, enabling installation in place without the traditional grinding to fit. The exact fit also facilitates easy bonding within one office visit, so you won't need to wear a temporary crown. This also reduces the chance of the crown falling out, and creates durable metal-free digital crowns last can last more than 10 years.
