A crown is tooth restoration that fully covers a damaged tooth and is used to help bring the tooth back to normal function. In most cases, crowns are used for broken or fractured teeth, teeth that are severely decaying, fractured fillings, large fillings, and even root canals. But they can also be used for more cosmetic reasons such as replacing discolored teeth and poorly shaped and positioned teeth. At Create a Smile we use CEREC and CAD/CAM technology to ensure you the best crowns in the most comfortable way. If we recommend a crown during your visit, be sure to ask if you are a candidate for a CEREC crown in one day!
