CEREC Tooth Crown Technology In Fargo
A crown is a type of dental restoration that completely caps, or encircles, a tooth or dental implant. Dental crowns are used for a variety of purposes. It can be used to protect a heavily decayed tooth from further damage. Tooth crowns are also used to complete certain dental procedures, like root canal therapy. Using CEREC technology, our Fargo dentist is able to create dental crowns in a shorter time period, allowing patients to restore their smiles more quickly!
Dental crowns are most commonly made of either porcelain or gold. Gold is advantageous because it is very strong in thin sections. It is also easy to cast. Porcelain is often preferred, though, for its very natural appearance. It is usually used when the dental crown is being placed on a front tooth.
Common Reasons For A Tooth Crown
- To strengthen a tooth after root canal therapy.
