Dental Crowns

Due to daily day-to-day activities or the wear and the tear to our enamel, we can weak our teeth while keeping the natural structure of our dentition intact and viable. In this kind of situation, a durable and reliable solution is a dental crown. This procedure is done within one single appointment with the use of CEREC Omnicam used at Centre dentaire NP, located in Kirkland, Montreal, to preserve the structure without compromising the rest of the anatomy.

What is a dental crown?

In order to replace a broken, decayed or demineralized tooth, a dental crown can be a perfect solution. It is made of either porcelain or zirconium and serve as a complete restoration of your original tooth. This allows you to restore complete function while maintaining a harmonious structure with the oral cavity.

Restoration with one single visit!

At Centre dentaire NP, located in Kirkland in the West Island, your dentist uses the CEREC Omnicam technology with which the design and fabrication occurs with the aid of digital technology. With this machine and technology, the dentist can create ceramic crowns using a digital dental impression. As this technology allow the dentist to create a dental crown, the same day, you will not have to leave the office with a temporary crown as it was the case with traditional dental clinics. Moreover, this eliminates a third-party laboratory and keeps all treatment between you and the dentist.

Placement of the dental crown

  • The dentist evaluates your needs and prepares the tooth for the crown by removing the damaged enamel.
  • A dental radiograph is taken with the latest technology to ensure there is no damage to the rest of the anatomy of the tooth. Using the CEREC Omnicam the tooth is ‘’scanned’’ to obtain the digital dental impression of the tooth itself neighbouring opposing dentition.
  • A 3D model is created, and this digital information is sent over to prepare your crown. This is done using a block of ceramic chosen by your dentist. Once the 3D model is created, your crown will take approximately 30-40 minutes to be prepared.
  • Once the crown is ready your dentist will check to see if it fits well into your oral cavity. If the fit and bite is right, the dentist will proceed to cementing the crown in and final polishing touches intraorally.
