Strategic teeth such as your first molars, that have had extensive amalgam dentistry are at risk of collapsing and breaking the tooth. An amalgam is a very strong restoration but in an extensively restored tooth will lead to failure. Hence placement of a crown over the tooth will preserve vital tooth structure and prevent failure.
Often these procedures can be completed in one appointment with the use of our CEREC machine. This allows chair side fabrication of the ceramic crown and bonding to the tooth in one visit. The CEREC machine allows us to restore otherwise normal fillings with inlays and onlays which can preserve the tooth longer than a conventional tooth coloured resin filling. Again this is complete in one appointment.
