How do dental crowns work?
Dental crowns are used to entirely cover a broken, cracked or fractured teeth. Cemented onto existing teeth, crowns add reinforcement, making teeth stronger and more resistant to damage in the future. Crowns are typically made of porcelain or ceramic, and can also be a very esthetic option; allowing you to enhance your smile while strengthening your teeth.
A traditional dental crown typically requires at least two appointments. At Smoky Mountain Dentistry, we also have the computer technology to design and place crowns in just one visit, depending on your specific need.
CAD/CAM dentistry is a field of dentistry that uses computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to enhance the creation of a number of dental restorations. Many dentists will use CAD/CAM dentistry to produce custom crowns, inlays and onlays, veneers, bridges, dental implants, and more.
