Treating Damaged Teeth with Crowns
Dental crowns are a common, vital dental prosthetic solution to protect and save a tooth. They help protect damaged and decayed teeth from further decay, the everyday strain of chewing, and reinfection (if the crown was placed as a result of a root canal). As dental technology has advanced, dental porcelain has become an increasingly popular material for crowns; not only is porcelain strong enough to protect the tooth, but it also mimics the appearance of healthy original teeth. Placing a crown is an important part of the dental treatments our Fort Lee dentist provides because it allows us to save natural teeth.
However, a traditional crown would up to two weeks to fabricate, leaving the patient with a temporary solution until the final crown was shipped to his dental practice.
How CEREC Works
Utilizing the advanced technology of CEREC milling system, our patients no longer have to wait two weeks for their final restoration. This same-day crown technology gives delivers a strong and aesthetic crown in one dental visit.
With CEREC’s advanced imaging technology, Dr. Zampieri can map out the shape of your tooth with complete accuracy. Then, with the in-office milling machine which comes with CEREC, our Fort Lee dentist can create a porcelain crown within the same appointment.
