In many instances, a simple filling just isn’t enough. In those circumstances when a tooth is very badly decayed, or after a tooth has undergone a root canal, a crown is often the best choice. This dental appliance looks just like a regular tooth and fits completely over the existing natural tooth. Many crowns today are porcelain crowns, which means they very closely resemble a patient’s teeth, making crowns barely noticeable. Dr. Unser is pleased to offer this as one of the many services he provides his family of patients from throughout the Lakewood, CO, area.
Why Choose 20th Avenue Dentistry for Porcelain Crowns?
Dr. Unser has been providing high-quality dental services for his patients for over 30 years. During that time, he has fitted them with countless porcelain crowns. But experience isn’t the only reason to choose 20th Avenue Dentistry for porcelain crowns, because Dr. Unser and his staff now use a new technology called CEREC®, which enables them to make your new permanent crown while you wait!
What You Should Know about Porcelain Crowns and CEREC®
Porcelain crowns are custom-made to precisely fit over the entire surface of a patient’s tooth. In the past, getting a new crown involved two trips to our office: the first to prepare the affected tooth for the new crown, and the second (usually 10 to 14 days later) to have the new crown permanently placed. The waiting time in between the two appointments was the time it took a dental lab to create the crown. But now, thanks to CEREC® technology, Dr. Unser and his staff can create your new permanent crown here in our office while you wait. That means you or any member of your family can be fitted with a new porcelain crown in just a single visit!
