A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size.  A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

Although there are several types of crowns, ceramic (tooth colored crown) are the most popular.  They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.  Ceramic crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

Reasons for crowns:

  • Broken or fractured teeth.
  • Cosmetic enhancement.
  • Decayed teeth.
  • Fractured fillings.
  • Large fillings.
  • Tooth has a root canal.

What does getting a crown involve at Nebula Dental Clinic?

Traditional crown procedures require two appointments.  At the first appointment a dental mold is taken to produce a temporary crown. After the decay is removed under local anesthesia and the tooth is shaped another dental mold is taken and sent to the lab for the production of the crown. At the second appointment another local anesthetic injection is delivered and the temporary crown is removed and a new crown is inserted.

At Nebula Dental Clinic a ceramic crown is fabricated in a single appointment. After local anesthesia, decay is removed and the tooth is shaped for the crown. The CEREC scanner is used to scan and design the crown digitally. The crown is then milled through the CEREC MXCL milling unit and placed at the same appointment.
