A dental crown is a cap or covering that can be placed directly over a natural tooth. Using dental crowns, our team can save damaged teeth that would normally need to be extracted, stop the spread of infection and help you maintain a full, healthy smile.
At Skyline Family Dental, we create crowns that look completely natural and feel comfortable. Our crowns are made right in the office using CEREC technology.
Receive Your Crown in a Day With CEREC Crowns in a Day Technology
CEREC machines utilize 3D imaging software and a milling instrument to create beautiful, custom-made porcelain crowns right in our office. Without CEREC, crowns would have to be crafted in a dental laboratory using a process that can take a few days. With CEREC readily available, we can create perfect, beautiful crowns the day of your appointment.
Instead of wearing a temporary crown while your permanent crown is being crafted, Dr. Overholtzer can place your permanent crown immediately. This allows us to make dental crown procedures even more convenient and comfortable for our patients. We can use our CEREC machine to create custom-made restorations including dental veneers, singular dental crowns, and dental bridges.
Replace Missing Teeth Using Dental Crowns With a Beautifully Crafted Dental Bridge
A dental bridge uses a series of dental crowns to fill a gap left by a missing tooth or teeth. Dental bridges are applied by placing crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap, and cementing dental crowns in between to “bridge” the gap.
These middle crowns are what fill the gap in your smile, and can be shaped and colored to ensure that they look and feel natural. Dental bridges allow patients who have lost their teeth to smile confidently again, and enjoy a whole range of functionality again. They can restore proper bite and chewing functions, as well as improve speech.
Which Treatment is Best for Your Smile?
We understand that tooth loss and damaged teeth can be disheartening for a patient. However, we believe that dental crowns and bridges can help restore your smile to full functionality. Dental crowns are perfect for patients that have damaged teeth, such as from tooth decay, cracks, and breakage. Whereas dental bridges are a viable solution for tooth loss (along with dental implants, which you can read more about here). The best way to uncover what works for you is to consult with Dr. Overholtzer during a one-on-one meeting.
