Same Day Crowns
At the Aesthetic Dental Center of Kentucky, Dr. Cornette provides same day custom crowns by utilizing advanced equipment and state of the art technology.
A crown is a custom made porcelain "cap" that covers the entire crown of the tooth. By providing support a crown can help prevent a weak tooth from breaking and thus requiring extraction. Since it is porcelain it is completely natural looking.
Crowns are good choice for:
Weak teeth - crowns protect weak teeth, typically caused by severe decay. A tooth can also be weak if over ⅔ of the tooth is replaced by a filling or the tooth has had a recent root canal.
Cracked teeth - crowns hold together parts of cracked teeth and restore their natural shape, function, and look.
Worn down teeth - crowns restore broken or severely worn down teeth, typically caused by bruxism (teeth grinding) or dental erosion.
Large fillings - crowns cover and support teeth with large fillings that have little remaining tooth structure left.
