Dental Crowns in Cullman
All-Porcelain, Natural-Looking Crowns
A crown is a tooth restoration that caps a decayed or damaged tooth, covering the entire part of your tooth that is visible above the gumline. A crown gives your damaged tooth the support and strength it needs to continue functioning. A crown can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth, or it can be placed on top of an implant to replace a tooth that was lost.
Dr. Bartlett provides all-porcelain crowns that are completely metal-free and look very aesthetic. Her professional work experience has included nine years of working alongside a top cosmetic dentist, a specialist in aesthetic and functional tooth restoration. She uses only the best materials to ensure your crown is durable, fits well and looks completely natural.
Our Durable, All-Ceramic Crowns
Top-Quality Ceramic Materials
Dr. Bartlett takes great care to ensure that your crown comes out exactly right. She uses top-quality ceramic materials to make sure that your crown is strong and durable, and looks beautiful.
For the back teeth—which must be able to withstand the greatest biting forces—Dr. Bartlett usually uses zirconia, an ultra-strong and natural-looking ceramic that is one of the latest advancements in dentistry.
For the front teeth, she uses a variety of durable porcelain materials that are extremely lifelike for the best possible aesthetic result.
Same-Day Dental Crowns with CEREC Primescan and Primemill
Our doctors use the CEREC system to design and create same-day corwns right in our office. It features a Primescan intraoral scanner for accurate digital impressions and the Primemill milling machine that actually mills the new tooth on site.
First, our experienced dentists will take detailed, accurate digital impressions of your teeth and your bite using the advanced CEREC Primescan intraoral scanner.
After taking digital scans of your tooth, the doctors will use advanced 3D modeling software to ensure a precise crown that will fit perfectly with your bite.
Once the design of your crown is complete, it will be sent to the in-office milling machine, the Primemill, for fast fabrication of your new tooth.
When a dental crown restoration is beneficial to use
A crown can be used in a number of situations, including:
- To repair and protect a damaged or decayed tooth
- To serve as an artificial tooth on top of a dental implant (replacing a single, missing tooth)
- To strengthen a tooth and protect a tooth from fracture after root canal treatment
- To correct the alignment of your bite
- To improve the appearance of your smile by correcting discoloration or misshapen teeth. (Veneers can also be used for this purpose, but when the tooth is also damaged due to fracture or decay, the doctor may recommend a crown instead.)
