If you have the desire to restore your tooth’s shape, size, and strength, you could be a great candidate for a dental crown!
A dental crown in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is a tooth-shaped cap that covers the entire visible surface of your tooth and restores its health and appearance. It also has the ability to:
- Protect a weak tooth
- Support a tooth that has been severely worn down
- Disguise a severely discolored tooth
- Cover a misshapen tooth
- Restore a broken tooth
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover a dental implant
- Make a cosmetic modification
Dr. Gilbert Fernandez is thrilled to help you by placing the crown within one visit at Gilbert Fernandez, D.D.S., Inc.! This is possible because we proudly utilize our CEREC® machine, which creates the dental crown right here in our own office. First, your dentist will shave the surfaces of your tooth to create room for the crown. Then, instead of your dentist making impressions and sending them to a lab to be made for you, our CEREC machine will create the crown in a short amount of time. When your tooth and crown are ready, your dentist will check and adjust the crown to the fit of your bite and smile. When he finds the perfect placement, the crown will be permanently cemented to the tooth.
To take advantage of our one-visit dental crowns, call our practice today!
