Crowns and Bridges- CEREC
A crown is a restoration that covers, or caps, a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size. Its purpose is to strengthen or improve the appearance of a tooth. Crowns are placed for a variety of reasons. Most of our crowns are made by our Cerec CAD/CAM digital dentistry in office, often in 1 visit!! Through a series of scans, after the tooth has been prepped for crown therapy, Dr. Murphy designs and creates your new crown. Through this technology same day dentistry has been achieved and the need to wait several weeks to finalize treatment is not always needed for crown therapy.
Bridgework is a fixed prosthetic used to replace missing teeth that is attached to the adjacent teeth. After the preparation is completed, a scan of your teeth is taken and sent to our labs for design of your bridge. A temporary bridge is in place for a period of time before the permanent bridge is finalized and placed.
