Do you have a tooth or teeth that are misshapen, broken, cracked, chipped, too small, discolored or causing your smile to be less than attractive? Do you have a tooth missing and live in the Philpot area? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, Dr. Thompson, Dr. Frey and their caring, well-trained team would like to help give you back your perfect smile. There are a variety of dental procedures that can treat these issues. One of them is the CEREC dental crown offered at our office in Owensboro.
A CEREC dental crown is made to cover over teeth that are damaged, like a cap over the problem tooth. CEREC porcelain crowns sound delicate, but they aren’t. A porcelain crown is durable and sturdy. A dental crown can be used for a variety of treatments.
Benefits of a CEREC Dental Crown
- Dental crown treatment in Owensboro can be used on either side of a gap in your smile and used to secure a dental bridge.
- Porcelain crowns can cover a tooth that is cracked, chipped, misshapen, broken, has a lot of dental work (and is susceptible to more trauma or infection), is too small, or otherwise doesn’t “fit” in your smile.
- A dental crown is customized so it matches your smile. They are matched for color, shape and size so you can smile, laugh and have your photo taken with confidence. Dental crowns look completely natural.
- Porcelain crowns restore dental implants. This means that porcelain crowns are placed on a dental implant to form a “new” tooth and tooth root. A dental implant plus a porcelain crown is a little like growing a new, sturdy, gorgeous tooth.
