CEREC Porcelain Crowns With Your Cary Dentist

CEREC porcelain crowns and tooth crown dentistry with a Cary dentist Apex NC and MorrisvilleIf you’re missing a tooth or have irreparable damage to a tooth, a dental crown (cap for teeth) is an excellent solution to restore your smile.

Porcelain crowns are made to look exactly like your natural teeth, and there have been impressive advances in modern dental technology to make a crown for teeth that is created especially for you in just one office visit. This technology is known as CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (thank goodness for the acronym).

What is CEREC?

CEREC is a procedure that allows Dr. Acton to create fully custom dental crowns right in their Cary office near Morrisville and Apex, NC.

Why is this important? You’re a busy person, and one visit for a custom tooth crown means no repeat office visits to finish the procedure. We respect your time and are thrilled to offer CEREC dental crowns to help you save more of it.

Why Dental Crowns?

  • Dental crowns are most often used when your existing tooth is too damaged for other traditional dental procedures like fillings.
  • If your damaged tooth is exceptionally weak, a tooth crown could strengthen the existing structure and provide necessary protection.
  • Dental crowns can be used to support a dental bridge if needed.
  • A tooth crown is also used as a cap for a dental implant and becomes a beautiful and permanent replacement for a missing tooth.

How Does Dr. Acton Place Dental Crowns?

  1. The first step involves taking a mold of the natural tooth that will be replaced by the tooth crown. A cap for teeth (dental crown) will be created especially for you.
  2. The second step involves Dr. acton shaping your natural tooth so the tooth crown will fit perfectly.
  3. After the new dental crown is made it is affixed to your natural tooth that was reshaped to receive the new dental crown.
  4. Finally, after your dental crowns are placed, Dr. Acton may make some very slight adjustments to ensure that each tooth crown is properly aligned with your other teeth.
