Our dentists may recommend a dental crown to safely protect and restore the original shape and size of a damaged tooth and to cosmetically improve the appearance of a misshapen or discolored tooth. Crowns (or caps) are a full-cover restoration that cover the entire tooth surface. We invite you to call us at 603-672-6546 to learn more about dental crowns in Amherst, New Hampshire, and schedule your appointment at New Hampshire Center for Comprehensive Dentistry.
While traditional dental crowns typically take two appointments, our office features CEREC same-day dentistry technology. CEREC is a state-of-the-art device that uses CAD/CAM technology to quickly create a highly detailed digital impression of your mouth, design a custom dental crown, and mill that crown.
Dental crowns may be made from several different types of materials, ranging from gold to tooth-colored material such as porcelain or ceramic. When your crown is made using CEREC technology, a tooth-colored material is used, and is carefully matched to the shade of your other teeth to produce a beautiful, durable, and natural-looking result.
For more information about same-day dental crowns and CEREC technology, or if you would like to schedule a consultation with our dentists to determine if a dental crown is right for you, please contact our office.
