  • "As you walk in and are happily greeted by reception the first thing you notice is the care that has been taken to create a relaxing and comfortable environment while you wait, albeit a short wait. Perhaps most importantly your cleaning is done with the gentlest touch as every care is taken to avoid discomfort. Dr. Gentry is every bit an educator as she is a highly skilled dentist. While being seen she thoroughly explained, in easily understood terms, what was going on behind my lips and how to best continue good oral hygiene practices. Gentry Dental sets the bar high."

Dental Crowns and Bridges in Charlotte, NC

Dental Crowns and Bridges | Gentry DentalAt Gentry Dental, we believe that prevention is the key to avoiding many dental issues. That said, however, most of us will need to have a tooth repaired or restored at some point in our lives.

While Dr. Gentry is conservative in her treatment recommendations, when your tooth has failed or is in need of repair beyond the scope of what a dental filling can restore, she will recommend a dental crown for you.

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is custom designed to replace your damaged, injured, or infected tooth while protecting the integrity of your root. It fits over your remaining natural tooth structure like a “cap,” essentially giving you a brand new tooth made of high-quality porcelain. Dr. Gentry custom blends your tooth so it naturally completes your smile and no one will notice your dental work.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

The process of getting a crown placed used to require a minimum of two long appointments, and at least 2 to 4 weeks of waiting for completion. This does not account for a temporary crownCEREC Dental Crowns | Gentry Dental breaking or falling out, which would require additional visits and more time out of your busy schedule.

All this has changed, however, with CEREC same-day crowns, and Dr. Gentry is proud to offer this revolutionary technology to her patients.

CEREC allows us to scan a 3-D image of your tooth, which Dr. Gentry can use to customize and design your new tooth. The image is then sent directly to our milling machine located right in our office. Dr. Gentry will custom shade your new tooth so it naturally completes your smile, and CEREC will fabricate your new tooth while you wait. The result is that you will leave our office with a beautiful, high-quality restoration that is completely finished and you can be proud of.

Dental implants are also good options for anchoring a dental bridge, as they will also keep your jawbone healthy and stimulated, adding longevity to your bridge.
