Crowns are ceramic coverings of your tooth designed to return a damaged tooth to its original strength and appearance. When decay has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. For all the following problems, and more, we can provide a CEREC crown in a single visit to Caven Dental Group!
Our in-office CEREC technology allows our award-winning cosmetic dentist, Dr. Richard Caven, to offer more versatile treatment options that are more conservative to your tooth structure, more aesthetic, and less expensive. To date, CEREC is the most advanced and precise way to restore the look and function of your teeth. Dr. Caven uses a digital scanner to capture the dimensions of your tooth instead of the traditional impression material. This allows him to visualize the shape and size of the tooth quickly and accurately.
CEREC technology then creates a CAD model of the tooth, from which the tooth restoration is made. With traditional crowns, several weeks to a month is usually waiting for the actual crown to be fabricated in a dental lab. Fabricating a crown has historically taken anywhere from a few days to several weeks. Using the CEREC process, your new dental crown is milled right in the office. Instead of having to wait for a crown and come back for another appointment to have it placed, now you can have the crown placed in your mouth immediately. Your entire treatment process for CEREC crowns in Jacksonville, FL takes about one hour!
Dental bridges are natural-looking dental restorations that can replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth. Bridges are sometimes referred to as fixed partial dentures because they are semi-permanent and are bonded to existing teeth or implants. Porcelain, gold alloys or combinations of materials are usually used to make bridges. To ensure a comfortable and seamless fit, we first take digital impressions of the area. These will be used by experienced technicians at our partner dental lab who will hand-craft your restoration. Your dental bridge will be made from high-quality materials and color-matched to look natural alongside your existing teeth. The benefits of dental bridges include:
