Procera Crown

IMPROVING EXISTING TEETH

If a tooth is damaged or of poor quality, a new ceramic crown is probably the best solution. Installation is fast. The end result is fantastic.

The all-ceramic Procera crown has many advantages over traditional crowns. Besides its high esthetic qualities, the function and longevity of the crown is excellent as well.

Benefits of a new Procera crown:

  • Superior esthetic result, compared to traditional crowns
  • Easy installation, quick results
  • Short and convenient treatment

Treatment: 

In the best case, the new crown is installed in two dentist visits in one week's time. The inconvenience and after-effects will be minimal.

COURSE OF TREATMENT

PLACING A NEW CROWN – STEP-BY-STEP

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

     
1: Before the procedure
The dentist makes a first evaluation and makes an impression of the existing crown. The impression is used as the prototype for the new crown.
  2: Preparing the old tooth
The natural tooth is given minor preparation or adjustments. A temporary crown is attached.

     
3: Placing the new crown
A week or so after the first visit, the permanent crown is securely fitted. Normally, it will serve its owner for life.
  4: End result
The end result is a new tooth that should blend in perfectly with the others. Brush and floss as recommended by your dentist or dental hygienist.

 


 
ALTERNATIVES TO AN ALL-CERAMIC CROWN

  Porcelain fused to metal

Simply put, a new all-ceramic Procera crown is esthetically superior to any other type of crown. You just can't get the same finish and natural, living look with a traditional metal core crown. However, the latter is an established and well-known solution. This is probably why it is still commonly used, even though function, installation and price are normally equal to that of a ceramic crown.

Dr. Carpenter,



So many times in business and life in general, we are pummeled with the negative. I just wanted to drop a quick positive note to let you know how pleased I am with yourself and the entire staff at M Street Dental. My entire family have been patients with you for many years. I don’t believe anyone will tell you they enjoy going to the dentist and I will confess I am no exception. M Street Dental however has always maintained a genuinely positive and friendly atmosphere where I feel as though I am among friends. This includes your entire staff. On Thursday, January 17th, I went into your clinic expecting to have a what was left of a tooth that had broken off extracted. To my pleasant surprise you have put me on a treatment plan to basically “resurrect” this tooth. Keep up the great work & kudos to you all.

When I asked for an evaluation of my mouth, I thought I would probably lose all my remaining teeth, and start over. Remarkably you immediately removed the remains of 2 teeth and set up time the next day to make impressions. Your assistant made very good impressions, and made time the next day for your lab people to add to and repair my existing partial plates. A great job by all of you! The fit is amazing, and they work almost as well as normal teeth. They have needed no adjusting and I can eat green salad again, and apples! And the teeth that show in a smile look very natural. Thank all of you for a good job, well done. It is much appreciated! All done in 4 days!! Unbelievable! Thank you very much.
