The Finishing Touch

A crown covers, or caps, a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size. It strengthens the tooth as it improves its appearance. Crowns are needed when a tooth is cracked or broken down and a filling won’t solve the problem. Here are other ways crowns are used: to support a filling when there isn’t much tooth left, to attach a bridge, to protect weak teeth from breaking, to restore fractured teeth, and to cover misshapen teeth. At many practices, a finished crown requires a temporary crown and a return visit, but Durham dentist Dr. Gary Schlotterer uses computer-aided CEREC technology to mold and create a crown in one visit. CEREC same-day crowns are perfect for busy individuals who are looking to improve their oral health and smile quickly.
