Modern dental crowns are the perfect combination of form and function. If you have a weak or broken tooth, a dental crown caps the damage and holds the structure of the tooth together to prevent further problems, all while looking and feeling like your natural tooth. Dr. Ravi S. Ramjit of the Smile Institute Miami in Miami, Florida uses CEREC® crown technology to create durable, natural-looking crowns that he can apply in a single visit. If you need a crown, call or book your appointment online with Dr. Ramjit.
A dental crown sits over your broken or recently-repaired tooth like a cap and protects it from more damage that can result from everyday use. Crowns function like your natural teeth and fit into your bite, but they’re also made to look natural and improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile.
Dental crowns are an ideal option for protecting broken teeth, teeth weakened by decay, or even repaired teeth like those that have had root canals. The many benefits of crowns include:
Dr. Ramjit practices dentistry with a gentle approach, and he believes a visit to see him shouldn’t be a major interruption in your life. This philosophy is the reason he uses the state-of-the-art crown-creation technology known as CEREC.
CEREC is a crown-creation process that allows Dr. Ramjit to examine, design, and produce a custom-made crown for you in a single visit. The CEREC process discards messy impression trays, uncomfortable temporary crowns, and the need for return visits.
The process Dr. Ramjit uses to create your crown is simple and effective:
Dr. Ramjit scans your mouth with a camera. It then uploads a 3D model of your teeth to a design computer.
Using cutting-edge computer technology, Dr. Ramjit creates a crown that fits perfectly and looks like your natural tooth.
The CEREC sculpting machine creates, mills, and polishes your new crown in minutes.
Through the use of induction technology, CEREC SpeedFire sinters and glazes the new crown to make it stronger and more durable.
Dr. Ramjit then places your new crown over your compromised tooth, examines and tests it, and returns you to your normal life.
If you need a crown and don’t want to wait around for it, call or book an appointment online with Dr. Ramjit to experience CEREC crown technology.
