A tooth crown is an important general dentistry restoration for rebuilding and protecting damaged and vulnerable teeth. Tooth-colored porcelain crowns maintain the natural, attractive appearance of your smile while restoring the full function and durability of your teeth. To find out if you are a candidate for our Cherry Creek porcelain crowns - which can sometimes be completed in just one appointment - please call DeWitt Dental Associates at 303-321-5656.
Same-Day Porcelain Dental Crowns
You may need a tooth crown for:
- Restoring and protecting broken, damaged or worn teeth
- Restoring a tooth after root canal treatment
- Replacing a worn out, broken dental filling
- Protecting a tooth that has become badly decayed
- Restoring aesthetically pleasing teeth and a great smile
Dental crowns are an effective way to provide strength, durability and stability when restoring your teeth. They are often included in a smile makeover to comprehensively improve the appearance of your smile.
Our all-porcelain dental crowns have many advantages and are a great way to restore your teeth without negatively affecting the appearance of your smile. Porcelain crowns are matched to the color of your teeth, and they have a translucence and other properties that make them look just like your natural teeth. In the hands of our experienced cosmetic dentists, crowns can be seamlessly incorporated into your smile.
In certain cases, depending on the specific problem with your tooth or teeth, we can perform same-day tooth crowns. You can come in for a single appointment, in which we will create tooth impressions, make the crown and place the crown. We do so using CEREC technology.
CEREC is computer-aided technology our dentists use right at the treatment chair. The CEREC allows our dentists to take impressions of your teeth digitally. The digital impression is used by the machine to design and manufacture your tooth crown. The entire process is completed in our office in about an hour and a half to two hours. But not all teeth make good candidates for the one-day process, and our dentists may need to complete your crown treatment over a couple of appointments.
Porcelain-fused-to-Metal Tooth Crowns
Whether you need a tooth crown on your front or back teeth, all-porcelain crowns may be an option. But for some people, the added durability of porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crowns may be necessary. Particularly if you have a habit of teeth grinding or clenching, all-porcelain crowns may be in jeopardy of breaking. We also offer metal crowns that are concealed by porcelain to provide the best of both worlds: the strength of a metal framework that blends into your smile because it is encased in tooth-colored porcelain.
Our experienced dentists can tell you whether you may benefit from this type of tooth crown. Unlike our same-day porcelain crowns, metal crowns typically require two dental appointments.
