When a tooth becomes weak, and a large filling can no longer maintain its structure, a crown may be necessary to help provide strength to the tooth to prevent it from breaking.
Using our state-of-the-art Planmeca CAD/CAM Mill, we are able to make crowns in our office, in one appointment!
First, Dr. Culler will "prep" your tooth by smoothing out the problematic area. This involves shaving down 1-2 mm of the tooth, eliminating any areas of decay or broken down fillings - while preserving healthy tooth structure. He will then take a digital impression of your prepped tooth. The next step includes Dr. Culler's talented eye where he then designs your restoration using the most up-to-date software. Our computerized mill then uses these specifications to cut the crown out of solid block material with extreme precision, (think of a reverse 3-D printer). This permanent crown is now ready to be seated.
The end result is a quicker, more reliable resolution. No more dealing with the hassle of temporary crowns, impression molding material and coming in for several appointments.
The appointment takes anywhere from 1-2.5 hours depending on your specialized treatment plan.
We can also use this technology to create veneers, abutments, onlays and bridges.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
