Crowns are permanent coverings to fit over a decayed, damaged, or cracked tooth. A custom crown will be created to restore the function and beautiful look of your smile. This kind of restoration entirely encases the damaged tooth, starting at the gum line, to restore the tooth to its optimal shape, size, and strength. Crowns can be formed from a variety of different materials, including porcelain and resin, for a natural color and look. We may suggest a dental crown in Shawnee Mission, Kansas, to improve your smile by:
- Strengthening a cracked or otherwise weakened tooth
- Repairing a seriously damaged or decayed tooth
- Covering and enhancing the appearance of a darkened or stained tooth
- Completing a dental implant to replace a missing tooth
- Protecting a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
- Attaching and anchoring a dental bridge
- Improving the appearance and functionality of an irregularly shaped tooth
Our dentist and his skilled team can create and place your custom crown in just two office visits. When finished, your crown will revitalize your oral health and the beauty of your smile. Our knowledgeable staff at Dr. Carole Gleich DDS’s practice will be happy to answer your questions about whether dental crowns are right for you. Call us today to learn more!
CEREC® Same-Day Dental Crowns
If you have a tooth that is weak or broken, then we invite you to visit the office of Mark S. Jensen DDS & Associates for CEREC® same-day dental crowns. This advanced computer software and milling system can produce beautiful, quality restorations in one day so you can leave our office with a healthier smile. Call our dentist if you want to learn more about how we can create a CEREC® same-day dental crown in Shawnee Mission, Kansas.
CEREC is a system that uses CAD/CAM technology to design and produce quality dental crowns in a single appointment. After taking 3D scans of your mouth, the CEREC software will create a digital image of the restoration that is designed to fit in your smile. This data will then be sent to the milling unit, a 3D printer that produces the crown from a ceramic block that matches your tooth color.
The dental crowns we create with CEREC are natural-looking and durable, able to strengthen and restore the weak and damaged teeth they encase. Because we use CEREC technology, you can save on time and money because you won’t have to wear a temporary crown for weeks while waiting for the permanent one’s creation. Call our office today if you want to receive a CEREC same-day dental crown.
