Single Crown (CAD/CAM)

When a tooth’s structure is compromised, a crown rebuilds it. A crown is usually made of ceramic or a composite material.
With a CAD/CAM crown, your doctor uses 3-D scanning technology to aid in designing the restoration. This makes it possible for your doctor to complete your crown in a single appointment.
First, your tooth is prepared to make room for the crown.
The prepared tooth is scanned, and the crown is made in your doctor’s office while you wait.
Once the crown is ready, your doctor will make final adjustments and cement it into place.
Your tooth is restored to optimal shape and function.
