Crowns are a type of dental restoration used to help repair teeth that have been chipped, cracked, fractured, or damaged in some way. Designed to act as a kind of ‘cap’ to the damaged tooth, crowns can help provide a more even and uniform finish to your smile.
Traditionally, crowns have been made of metal or a metal-ceramic composite. In addition to these traditional materials, here at Beverley House Dental Practice, we’ve partnered with CEREC to also offer our patients the option of high-quality ceramic restorations while they sit in the chair.
CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction and is a revolutionary new way to provide top quality porcelain dental restorations to patients in an efficient and effective manner. The CEREC system means there’s no waiting time in between appointments. Instead, your crown will be expertly made for you while you’re at the practice.
Just like other porcelain restorations, a CEREC crown is durable, hard-wearing, and can be colour matched to fit in practically seamlessly with your natural teeth. It will also be shaped and contoured to help create an even, uniform looking smile.Back to General Dentistry
