Dental Crowns An Overview
All-ceramic or all-porcelain crowns are a natural-looking solution to restore broken, worn, or chipped teeth.
In our Nashua dental office, our dentists use their artistic skills and state-of-the-art technology to design functional, strong, and natural-looking crowns to restore worn, decayed, or damaged teeth. Our unique approach ensures the restored tooth or teeth will both look and feel natural.
Single Visit Dental Crowns
We are one of the few dentists in Nashua with CEREC 3D technology which allows us to restore teeth with porcelain crowns in just one visit.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic. This innovative technology uses computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to offer single-day restorations for patients. The restorations created are metal-free and tooth-colored to restore your tooth to its natural beauty, strength, and function.
We take digital impressions of your teeth and then use sophisticated computer software to design a custom-fit tooth crown. The tooth cap is milled in our Nashua dental office while you wait – so there’s no need for temporaries or weeks of waiting for your permanent crown to be fabricated in a remote lab. Restoring one tooth with CEREC usually takes less than one hour.
Benefits of CEREC single visit crowns include:
- One-visit convenience
- No temporaries
- Advanced imaging instead of messy impression trays
- High-quality esthetics
- Color-matching to blend with natural teeth
- Created from metal-free material that mimics natural tooth enamel
- Clinically proven and backed by more than 20 years of research
