Crowns at Smile Hub Dental will use CEREC technology whenever possible to grant you the fastest service. First, digital 3D imaging is done around the area to precisely measure each surface the crown will be placed on. Second, the imaging is uploaded into the CEREC software where a digital crown will be crafted to the perfect fit around your adjacent and opposing teeth. Third, the CEREC CAD/CAM will spin into action and carve and polish a perfectly beautiful crown ready for placement within a couple hours. Your dentist will then place the crown and seal it with a strong bonding agent. If you require a crown that CEREC technology cannot accommodate it would be applied in two visits. During the first visit, the tooth is prepared and an impression is made to serve as a model for the crown. A temporary crown may be applied to protect the tooth. At the second visit, the crown is adhered using a very strong bonding agent.
