A dental crown is an effective restoration to enhance a damaged tooth’s strength, function, and appearance. A dental crown fully encases the visible portion of the tooth, effectively improving its size, shape, and aesthetic appeal.
As a biological dental office, Buscemi Family Dentistry in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, doesn’t just place any dental crown. We are mindful of the materials we use in your mouth, so expect our crown materials to be safe, biocompatible, and natural-looking. Our office has invested in CEREC porcelain crowns placed in one appointment. No wait, no temporaries, and no multiple anesthesia shots — just one comfortable and convenient visit.
Traditional crowns require at least two appointments and several weeks to restore your smile. We understand time is precious, so we have invested in advanced technology to ensure you can get a dental crown in one simple appointment.
Using a Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic (CEREC) machine, Dr. Vincent Buscemi can place a crown in less than two hours, speeding up a process that typically requires sending molds to an offsite lab.
The CEREC machine uses 3D technology to take detailed images of your dentition. Using this 3D rendering, we can design your crown with precise measurements to ensure it fits seamlessly in your smile. After approving the crown design, our in-house milling machine will carve out your restoration from a ceramic block, which takes 15-20 minutes.
Once your crown is ready, we’ll bond it to your prepped tooth using strong dental cement. The last part is to give you instructions on how to care for your restoration. Generally, you should brush your teeth with a non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Additionally, floss your teeth daily, keep off tobacco products, and wear a mouthguard if you brux your teeth.
There are many perks of CEREC dental crowns, including:
