Dental crowns are used for restoring damaged teeth that do not have enough remaining tooth structure to repair with other methods. It is not unusual for a filling to separate from the tooth, which causes decay and damage. Without immediate attention, the tooth will become further damaged, causing pain and a serious risk to your health. When the damage is too extensive to be repaired with another filling, replacing part of the tooth with a crown is often the best solution.
And for the convenience of our patients in Wellington, we offer CEREC same-day crowns.
Porcelain crowns are custom made to closely match the appearance and color of your existing teeth. The crown replaces lost tooth material and restores strength to your damaged tooth.
Porcelain crown advantages:
- Strengthen and increase the lifespan of the tooth
- Halt the spread of decay
- Repair structural damage
- Improve the alignment of your teeth
- A brighter smile and greater self-confidence
Crown placement requires two visits to our dental office in Wellington. On the first visit your tooth is prepared and shaped for your new crown. Impressions are taken and sent to a laboratory where the crown is crafted into a perfectly matching porcelain crown. On the second visit, the crown is placed. The entire process is comfortable and pain-free.
