Dental Crowns & CEREC Same-Day Crowns

While many people associate dental crowns with repairing a broken or diseased tooth, there are instances where a dental crown can do more than just reinforce tooth structure. When white, tooth-colored materials are chosen for the construction of dental crowns, patients can enjoy the benefits of a restoration paired with more beautiful, healthier looking teeth. Dental crowns can conceal chips, cracks, stains, and jagged edges. A series of white dental crowns can transform a worn, noticeably flawed smile.

Conventional dental crowns take a couple office visits to receive. This is because dental crowns must be custom made so that they fit over an individual’s tooth perfectly. Constructing custom restorations does take time and careful attention to detail.

Our practice does offer an alternative to conventional crowns with CEREC. These restorations can be made in one visit to our practice where we mill the custom restoration on-site with CAD/CAM technology. CEREC crowns are made from high-quality, durable ceramics to provide a beautiful, natural-looking enhancement to teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

VeneersMore than likely, a well-known person you admire like a musician or public figure wears porcelain veneers. These cosmetic enhancements are a favorite among many because they produce a complete smile makeover.

Veneers are ultra-thin, tooth-shaped enhancements made from porcelain. They are permanently bonded to the front surfaces of teeth so that flaws like gaps, chips, stains, and misshapen teeth can be concealed. Receiving porcelain veneers is not invasive and once the veneers are placed, patients enjoy a dramatic improvement in their appearance instantly.

Common Cosmetic Dentistry Questions

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses treatments and services that improve the aesthetics of one’s smile. Many cosmetic treatments focus on the color along with the shape and size of teeth so that a more desirable aesthetic, free of visible flaws, can be achieved. Popular examples of cosmetic dental work include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and white restorations like fillings and crowns. Many people enjoy teeth whitening treatments because they produce effective, noticeable results without permanently changing tooth structure.

The type of cosmetic treatment a person receives will depend on that person’s unique circumstances as well as our dentist’s recommendations. If a person has multiple types of dental imperfections such as permanent stains and noticeably damaged teeth, a combination of treatments might be necessary to achieve desired results. For instance, a person’s treatment plan could include professional teeth whitening and the placement of white dental crowns where necessary. Each person’s cosmetic treatment plan is developed on an individual basis.

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a restoration used to cover damaged teeth. It fits over a tooth’s biting surfaces and all its sides like a cap. Dental crowns can be recommended for restorative and cosmetic purposes. When used as restorations, crowns strengthen teeth by reinforcing their outer structure. If used for cosmetic reasons, a crown’s purpose is to conceal noticeable imperfections like cracks or jagged edges by covering the tooth with a permanent restoration. Cosmetic dental crowns are made from white, tooth-colored materials such as porcelain.

What is a veneer?

A porcelain veneer is a cosmetic enhancement that is bonded to the front sides of teeth. Veneers are tooth-shaped enhancements made from wafer-thin pieces of high-quality porcelain. Since each veneer is made for an individual’s specific tooth, it will look and feel natural. Porcelain veneers are used to permanently conceal imperfections like stains, chips, cracks, worn, and misaligned teeth. Some people have nicknamed veneers “instant orthodontics” because after veneers are bonded to teeth, a person’s smile will appear straight and free of conspicuous imperfections.

I have sensitive teeth, can I still whiten my teeth?

If you have sensitive teeth, it is a good idea to be cautious when it comes to exposing teeth to ingredients that might exacerbate your symptoms. Receiving professional teeth whitening under the care of a qualified dentist is recommended for those with sensitive teeth. If you do have tooth sensitivity, it is important to know that a professional whitening treatment can temporarily increase one’s symptoms for a few days.

Those who have sensitive teeth should be wary of over the counter whitening products. These products can contain ingredients that are harmful to teeth – especially if products have unstable formulas, are expired, or rely on harsh abrasives to remove stains.
