What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a protective cap placed over the entire visible portion of a tooth down to the gum line. They are commonly used in restorative and cosmetic dentistry due to their diverse uses; however, they are only recommended when there are no other viable treatments because it requires you to permanently alter your teeth. Nonetheless, they are invaluable for saving a damaged tooth from needing to be removed.
How Do They Work?
Dr. Hsue embraces the latest technological advancements, allowing you to get the durable restoration you need in one day. Your tooth is reshaped and prepared to allow the crown to be fitted over it. A digital impression of your mouth is taken to get the specifications necessary to design your crown using CAD/CAM software. The information is sent to our in-office milling machine, where it is cut from a single block of all ceramic material in about one hour. It is then cemented to your tooth to hold it in place.
