A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that covers the entire tooth to restore its size, shape, and function. Crowns provide much more than cosmetics – dental crowns are used to repair cracked or broken teeth, to strengthen and protect weakened or decaying teeth, and to provide support for other dental structures, such as bridges or dentures. Permanent dental crowns can be made from all metal, ceramic, or porcelain composite materials.
CEREC Tooth Restoration
For the most natural looking option, Dr. Ridge offers CEREC tooth restorations. The CEREC tooth restoration is a special procedure that utilizes a strong, tooth-colored ceramic resin that mirrors both the composition and appearance of the tooth’s natural enamel. With a CEREC restoration, the ceramic resin covering is chemically bonded to the tooth’s surface, providing superior strength and long-lasting protection. CEREC tooth restoration can be used to replace old, un-attractive metal fillings, and in most cases, can be completed in just one office visit. Talk to Dr. Ridge today to determine if CEREC tooth restorations are right for you.
