Same day onsite Crowns
We are pleased to offer you same-day crowns, fillings or veneers with our E4D system. E4D allows Dr. Rao to make a fast digital scan of your restoration, so you can avoid the inconvenience and wait associated with conventional dental techniques. Your crown, filling or veneer is created while you wait, and can be permanently seated in your mouth the same day, letting you avoid the hassle of a temporary. Please watch the video below.
Both crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants.
A crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function. Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. Other materials include gold and metal alloys, acrylic and ceramic. These alloys are generally stronger than porcelain and may be recommended for back teeth. Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is often used because it is both strong and attractive.
Your dentist may recommend a crown to:
- Replace a large filling when there isn't enough tooth remaining
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
- Restore a fractured tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Cover a dental implant
- Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
- Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
Please discuss your condition with the dentist for the best available treatment and options.
