Ceramic Crowns

Ceramic crowns are the most extensive treatment for tooth discolorations and other cosmetic imperfections. This is because the entire surface of the tooth is reduced and actually covered by the crown. When done properly, ceramic crowns can produce a near-perfect cosmetic result.

How are crowns applied?

On your first appointment, the tooth to be crowned must first be reduced down to provide a support structure for the crown. An impression is then taken of the reduced tooth so that the crown can be made to fit perfectly.

At the end of the first appointment, you will be fitted with a temporary crown to wear while your permanent crown is being made.

At your next visit, you will "try-in" your new crown. At this point, you can see what the finished crown will look like and be sure that the color and shape match the surrounding teeth. It is very important at this point that you communicate openly with Dr. Rogers. If there are concerns about the appearance of the tooth, this is the time to voice them. The crown can always be remade if it if not a good match.

When you are satisfied that the crown looks the way you want it to, Dr. Rogers will cement the crown in place.

The result of this procedure can often be amazing!
