Dental Crowns at Sarasota Bay Dental

If your tooth is broken or cracked, or if it is damaged by decay, dental crowns are a versatile restorative option that will help repair a tooth’s structure and appearance. Dr. Miller offers beautiful, natural-looking dental crowns in Sarasota Bay. With his masterful care and compassionate approach, you can rest assured that you’ll receive a high-quality, long-lasting crown from Sarasota Bay Dental.  

Understanding Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are typically made out of high-grade ceramic porcelain. They are sometimes called “caps” because they are intended to cap and cover up your entire natural tooth structure, protecting it from further damage and decay. Crowns are built to look and feel just like natural teeth, and they are bonded into place permanently using dental cement. This restores your smile and your bite, and ensures that your tooth will not suffer from any more damage.

Lab-Made Vs. CEREC Same Day Crowns

We offer both lab-made and same day, in-office crowns at Sarasota Bay Dental. Lab-made crowns are typically made of porcelain and a metal base material, and they offer incredible durability with high levels of detail. However, these crowns can take several weeks to manufacture because Dr. Miller must work with an outside dental lab to build your custom crown.

Alternatively, same-day crowns are milled out of a solid block of porcelain using a special CEREC machine. Dr. Miller can take photos and images of your mouth, upload them into a CEREC machine, and create a custom-made crown in under 30 minutes. This often makes same day crowns much more convenient and allows us to restore your smile in just a single appointment.

The Crown Placement Process

Whether you’re having a lab-made or same day crown placed, the process is very similar. First, Dr. Miller will clean your mouth and numb the treatment area. Next, your tooth will be trimmed and any damaged or decayed enamel will be removed to prepare your tooth for the placement of a crown.

If you are receiving a lab-made crown, impressions will be made of your teeth and sent to an outside dental lab where your crown will be created. When the crown is sent to our office, you’ll come in for your last appointment to have your crown bonded into place permanently.

For a same-day crown, Dr. Miller will use a special powder coating and 3D CEREC scanner to take detailed images of your mouth. Then, he will upload this information into our CEREC machine to create your dental crown. Once the crown has been completed, he will check it for proper size, fit and color, and bond it into place permanently.
