Our Unique Experience with Dental Crown Technology
Dr. Karen Davis has always believed in utilizing the latest in dental technology to the benefit of her patients. When it comes to crowns, she has unique, first-hand insight as she contributed to the development of CEREC® dentistry as a chief beta tester for the technological aspects while practicing in California. She also served as a clinical CEREC® mentor at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry in Scottsdale, Arizona. With extensive knowledge and experience in this dental advancement, Dr. Davis is the right choice for your CEREC® crown in Sarnia.
How Does the Process Work?
Crowns are typically used when a tooth or older filling becomes cracked or broken. They are often recommended in conjunction with root canal procedures depending on various factors, including the location of the tooth. The CEREC® crown process will typically involve the following steps:
- Your natural tooth will need to be prepared, so any decay and infection are addressed and then the remaining part of your tooth is shaped to accommodate the crown
- The CEREC® scanner will take a 3D image of your tooth and surrounding area
- The image is then relayed to CAD software to create a 3D model
- Once the model is ready, the actual restoration is milled out of a solid ceramic block
- Your new crown will be examined for fit and colour
- When approved, the restoration is bonded into place
This entire process can be completed in just one appointment at Dr. Karen Davis and Dr. John Milne Dentistry. If your old restoration is failing or your tooth is cracking or badly decayed, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. Please note that if we are fabricating an implant-supported crown, a return visit will be needed.
