A dental crown is a covering for an existing tooth. A dental crown is required when too much tooth structure has been lost due to decay or after root canal treatment. It is the strongest way to reinforce the tooth. Typically, a crown requires 2 visits, 2 weeks apart; one to prepare the tooth and another to cement the lab made crown.
Here at St Ives Smiles, we omit the second visit as we mill our crowns in-house with the innovative Cerec Milling Machine. Enjoy a cup of coffee, watch Netflix or even watch your crown being made during the milling process. Your tooth will be prepared and reinforced in one easy visit.
