Crowns are used when a filling is insufficient in protecting a tooth from further decay. When a tooth is severely damaged by decay, a crown acts as a protective barrier, covering the tooth to save it from progressive damage. This also protects the surrounding teeth from being affected by the decaying tooth.
Here at J-Town Comprehensive Dental Center, we utilize CEREC technology to design, fabricate and place a permanent crown in a single visit! This eliminates the need for several visits and a temporary crown while waiting for the permanent one. CEREC crowns are made using CAD-CAM (computer-assisted design-computer-assisted-manufacture). The ceramic crown is made by the computer to precisely fit the tooth while waiting in the office, eliminating the need for multiple appointments.
