A dental crown, sometimes called a cap, is a type of dental prosthetic that completely encircles a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed in order to protect the tooth and restore the natural look of the tooth. This common procedure uses dental cement to secure the crown to the tooth, making the original tooth and the crown one. While most crown procedures typically require two appointments, Radiant Smiles Dentistry cuts the time of this in half, allowing you to be in and out in an appointment’s time, leaving with a custom-made CEREC porcelain crown the very same visit. This means that there are no pesky impressions, no temporary crowns to wear and no inconvenience of having to schedule a second appointment. Instead, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy as you watch as your crown is designed and milled by state-of-the-art technology. There are over 15 million CEREC in place worldwide.
