Watford Smiles Dental
Our Dental Crown Watford are used to protect teeth from further damage such as fractures, cracks, loss of tooth structure (from decay or trauma). Dental crowns are extremely strong and give a natural tooth appearance. They still need the same care as your own teeth to keep them in place for many years.
A dental crown is used to:
Protect a tooth after root canal treatment
Help Protect and repair worn teeth
Protect teeth where there is not enough tooth structure present
Repair badly decayed teeth
Repair chipped or repair broken teeth
As a dental implant
A crown is made by preparing the tooth to allow a crown to sit over the top. Once the tooth is prepared we take a digital scan or an impression. We can make some crowns chair-side with the CEREC machine or we make it built by a dental laboratory. If made chairside, you enjoy a drink and some reading whilst we make your crown. If made by a dental laboratory, then a temporary crown is used to protect the prepared tooth whilst your custom-made crown is made.
Same Day Dental Crown Watford
Gone are the days of multiple appointments over several weeks before veneers or crowns could be fitted. CEREC™ machines have transformed cosmetic dentistry, allowing us to craft and fit veneers or crowns in just one visit!
CEREC™ is a state-of-the-art dental restoration product that uses digital scanning and CAD/CAM technology to make precise three-dimensional digital impressions of your tooth. The dentist then designs the crown before milling it out of ceramic on a computer-controlled milling machine in a matter of minutes.
No messy impressions or temporary crowns, less tooth removal, and the convenience of a single appointment. Our veneers, crowns and white fillings look as strong, natural and are as long-lasting as your existing teeth.
