Dental crowns have both restorative and cosmetic applications. They are the most common treatment for broken teeth, broken fillings, large fillings and cracked teeth, and they may be necessary after a root canal. The crowns of today are not the same as your grandparents’ crowns. Current techniques and materials have eliminated the unnatural-looking, telltale dark slice of gum line that used to be visible around older crowns. Today’s crowns are virtually unnoticeable. As a result, they are also being used to strengthen and reinforce weak front teeth.
At Orchard Dental, our dentists use state-of-the art techniques to ensure you get the best possible results. Our careful process for ensuring beautiful, natural-looking restorations includes professional photography using special cameras, and frequent conversations with the dental lab.
We understand: Getting a crown has been a notoriously long, messy and uncomfortable procedure. The team at Orchard Dental strives to make it all better. You can wrap up in a blanket and watch a movie, and enjoy a relaxing paraffin hand dip. With a little TLC, you’ll be amazed at how quickly the time passes.
CEREC® is a truly amazing advancement. Now we have the ability to computer-design and fabricate tooth-colored ceramic restorations in a single visit, using computer software and robotic milling hardware that are located right here in the Orchard Dental office.
