Porcelain Crowns

When a tooth has decayed enough that it doesn’t have the structure to support a filling, a crown is often used. A crown or “cap” is a permanent tooth covering that can be made out of a number of materials such as ceramic, metal, and stainless steel. We provide patients with all-ceramic crowns as they blend in the best with surrounding teeth. Thanks to advancements in dentistry, a crown can be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Crowns help to:

  • Restore a tooth that cannot support a large filling
  • Cover a discolored or misshapen tooth
  • Attach a bridge
  • Protect a weak or fractured tooth
  • Cover dental implants

       Unlike in years past, it is not necessary to file down the enamel on the tooth before fitting a crown. This means that you are able to conserve the healthy parts of your natural tooth.

You Only Need One Appointment!

Dr. Orobitg utilizes CEREC technology which allows us to create a custom-fitted crown in just one visit to our office. CEREC is a safe and efficient way to restore your smile and save you time.

Once we’ve decided that a crown is the best option, Dr. Orobitg will make an optical impression (i.e., a digital photo) which is turned into a 3-D model. Then, we shape a ceramic block to match the model through the use of an in-office milling machine. This takes about 15 minutes. Once we’ve tested it for the proper fit and bite, it is bonded to the tooth, and you’re done!

For more information on crowns or to make an appointment with Dr. Orobitg, give us a call at 352-787-5919.
