A crown is a ceramic “cap” that is cemented over a specifically prepared tooth. Crowns can be fabricated in a single visit through our use of CEREC technology (tooth prepared and crown cemented on the same day) or sometimes sent to one of our Australian dental laboratories for fabrication off-site.
“Same day” Crowns
- The CEREC system uses computer assisted design/computer assisted manufacture (CAD-CAM) technology. Following digital scanning of the prepared tooth/teeth, the crown, inlay/onlay is milled from ceramic blocks custom-made specifically to your prepared tooth
- The benefits of this technology is that you sit and wait whilst your crown is fabricated hence minimising inconvenience to you, meaning no messy impressions and no temporary crown whilst crown is fabricated at a laboratory.
