To salvage a severely compromised tooth, you may need a crown, also called a cap. Crowns return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. With innovative CEREC technology, Dr. Hauge, Dr. Kuntz, and Dr. Vargas can craft and place a new crown in one appointment. CEREC is a computer-aided system that allows dentists to produce and place permanent, reliable, tooth-colored ceramic restorations in a single visit. Dr. Hauge will create a 3-D image of your tooth to design a strong, attractive crown, inlay, or onlay. The in-office milling unit will create the restoration in about an hour. CEREC restorations fit so precisely that they conserve tooth structure, seal completely, and last for years.
