We offer quality porcelain crowns in Charlotte, NC.

However, there are all types of dental crowns, including but not limited to:

  • Zirconia: Metal and porcelain combined
  • E-Max: Lithium disilicate
  • Gold: Mostly for back teeth

However, porcelain crowns are more like natural teeth in feel and fit. They can restore teeth, bite function, and so much more!

How We Use Dental Crowns in Charlotte, NC

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped covers customized to fit over treated teeth. And we use them in many capacities.

Some patients choose a dental crown to conceal an unflattering or discolored tooth in cosmetic dentistry. We can also use crowns for tooth replacement. They cap dental implant posts and connect dental bridges (restoring teeth) to healthy teeth.

The most common way we use dental crowns is in tooth restoration. For example, if you break your tooth or develop a root infection, we typically cap it with a dental crown following treatment. The crown prevents future damage.

About CEREC Same-Day Crowns in Charlotte, NC

CEREC technology allows us to create same-day dental crowns. With this option, you do not have to wear a temporary or wait weeks while a lab creates your restoration.

We take impressions, send the results to our onsite software, and then on to our milling machine for printing. We use a single piece of porcelain to cut your crown. This all happens while you wait!

When the crown is ready, your dentist makes final adjustments to the restoration and cements it over your prepared tooth. From there, you are free to enjoy your day.
