Dental CrownsAn Overview
West Ashley Family Dentistry is home to two highly trained and experienced dentists, Dr. James Dickert and Dr. Agatha Lynn. We offer high quality dental crowns that are custom made to enhance both function and aesthetics. Dental crowns can be used to address both cosmetic and restorative dental concerns with lasting results that will preserve the integrity of your natural smile.
Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, and we will recommend the most appropriate choice for you depending on the location of the affected tooth and your cosmetic goals. In most cases, a color matched porcelain or ceramic crown is suggested for both durability and a natural appearance.
Common dental crown treatments include:
- Damaged tooth
- Decayed tooth
- Misshapen tooth
- Discolored tooth
- Fix gaps between teeth
- Strengthen a tooth after a root canal or to support a dental bridge
Same Day Crowns in Charleston
For many patients, the need for a new dental crown is due to tooth damage, decay or the loss of a previous crown. When placing a traditional crown restoration, two separate visits were required before you could walk out with your permanent crown and a functional smile.
Dr. Dickert and Dr. Lynn use advanced CAD/CAM technology to offer the best possible result without the wait. There is no the need for a temporary tooth cap. This innovative technology works by using E4D technology to scan an image of your compromised tooth. Our doctors use this digital image to design and create a custom dental crown before sending it on to our in-office milling system. We can design, create and place a high quality dental crown during one visit and send you on your way with a functional, comfortable smile.
Digital technology, something we embrace at West Ashley Family Dentistry, enables us to provide the best possible patient experience with more accurate treatment planning, comfortable procedures and lasting results.
