Crowns are a cosmetic restoration used to strengthen a tooth or improve its shape. A crown is placed when a tooth is broken and/ or has decay that is so large that the tooth needs to be reinforced or a filling will not hold.
For most crown restorations, Dr. DuHamel utilizes CEREC® CAD/CAM Technology for in-office fabrication of dental crowns and dental implant restorations. This unique technology has been available for over two decades and offers the advantage of allowing our doctors to design your custom ceramic crown using 3D technology in our office while you wait. You leave our office with your final restoration on the same day!
Though in some instances, we cannot use the Cerec and we will need to have a crown made by the lab.
