Crowns are a permanent covering that fit over a tooth that is cracked, damaged, or decayed. They can be made with a variety of materials, including porcelain, gold, acrylic resin, or a mix of materials. Porcelain crowns typically have the most natural appearance but they are also less durable.
How CEREC Technology Works
Avenue Dental Care is proud to provide CEREC 3-D Technology to patients looking for tooth restoration and tooth replacement options. The CEREC system is used for same-day crown procedures as it eliminates the need to make temporaries or impressions.
We use a digital 3D camera to create a digital image of the tooth, and the computer-aided design (CAD) software allows us to design and create a more precise restoration that’s specific to your dental needs. These crowns are highly durable and can be color-matched to create a more natural-looking smile. CEREC is a registered trademark of Sirona Dental Systems.
