What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns (also known as “caps”) are designed to cover what remains of a single tooth, preserving the natural structure while also replenishing its original shape. Dr. Delaney may recommend this service in a number of different situations, including:
- When a tooth is experiencing severe decay that can’t be treated with a filling
- When a tooth has been badly injured
- When a tooth is weakened and has a high risk of fracturing
- When a tooth is cosmetically misshapen or otherwise imperfect
- When a lost tooth has been replaced with a dental implant and needs coverage
What is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are designed to provide tooth replacement for one or more missing teeth that used to appear consecutively. Some patients prefer bridges to traditional dentures because they’re sturdily anchored in place with dental crowns or dental implants for a confidently functional fit that will prevent nearby natural teeth from shifting out of place.
CEREC® 1-Visit Dentistry
Traditionally, the creation of a brand-new dental crown or bridge required two appointments – one for impressions and the placement of a temporary restoration, and the second for the placement of the finished, permanent restoration. Here in East Millinocket, Dr. Delaney is happy to now offer the state-of-the-art benefits of CEREC, which compresses this age-old process into a single, convenient appointment while still providing patients with a high level of quality and personalization! Just imagine – walking in with a damaged tooth and walking out with a confident, lasting improvement that will stand the test of time, no weeks of waiting required.
