Dentist Greenville SC - Five Star Reviews
Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

Greenville, SC residents ask, “What dental crowns are offered near me?”

Dr. Palmer John at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry offers best types of dental crowns

Your dentist performs several different types of procedures to maintain the health of your mouth. Teeth cleanings, exams, or cavity fillings may be routine functions, but more advanced procedures have become more common and are completed efficiently in the office. The goal is to protect and maintain your natural teeth. When needed, restorative procedures such as dental crowns restore or protect the natural tooth preserving the overall health of the mouth. Conveniently located near me in Greenville, SC, Dr. Palmer and Dr. Knause of Palmer Distinctive Dentistry offer comprehensive care including crowns to help you regain your beautiful smile.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns comes in more than one form. But, what exactly is a crown? A crown is commonly referred to as a cap. It is a fixed dental object that is bonded to the natural tooth. Once in place, it cannot be removed except by a dentist. A crown is used to cover, protect, or strengthen a tooth that has been damaged. The tooth may be chipped, broken, or decayed. The end result is improved appearance and function of the tooth.

 

Although there are variations to the methods used during the creation of a crown, the steps are similar. The dentist must first prepare the damaged tooth by removing any decay or damaged portion. This ensures a proper fit for your crown. Then, impressions of the tooth are taken. Depending on the type of crown to be used, a temporary crown may be worn while the permanent crown is being fabricated by a laboratory.

Types of crowns

Crowns can be made of porcelain, gold alloys, and base metal alloys

Crowns can be made of porcelain, gold alloys, and base metal alloys. At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, our traditional and CEREC crowns are made of porcelain to ensure biocompatibility. Ceramic crowns are also aesthetically appealing, durable, and long-lasting. Ceramic crowns are color matched to the adjacent teeth to get the best match.

 

Our practice uses traditional and CEREC crowns. The two differ in the method of fabrication. Traditional crowns are created by an off-site laboratory. Impressions of your teeth and detailed notes regarding the size, shape, and color of the tooth are sent to the lab. While the guest waits for the crown to be made, a temporary crown may be worn. Once completed, the permanent crown can be cemented into place during a second dental appointment.

 

CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, crowns are created and placed in the office on the same day. Utilizing advanced technology such as a CAD technology and an in-office milling machine, custom crowns are created by your dentist in a single visit. Rather than traditional impressions, digital impressions are used to create a computerized design for the crown. The design can be modified by the dentist as necessary to ensure a natural-looking result. Once the computerized design is finalized and approved, the milling machine fabricates the crown and is ready in minutes. The completed crown is bonded to the damaged tooth for a beautiful result. The entire process from start to finish is completed during the same office visit. There is no need to wear a temporary crown or to take time for additional dental appointments.

 Advantages of CEREC crowns

Advantages of CEREC crowns

 Crowns in general protect and maintain the health of your mouth. At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, we believe in preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. Using CEREC crowns enables us to provide a high level of guest care while protecting your dental health in an efficient manner.

 

Advantages of CEREC restorations include:

  • Single visit – Save yourself the time and convenience by only needing one dental appointment. The CEREC crown is created and bonded the same day.
  • Comfortable – The use of digital impressions is more comfortable for guests than biting into a manual mold.
  • Aesthetically pleasing – CAD technology allows the dentist to properly match the crown to the natural tooth in size, shape, and color.
  • Natural – Because the crown is created with a ceramic material, it looks and feels like a natural tooth.
  • Durable – A single block of ceramic is used so the crown is sturdy and less likely to chip.
  • Safe – CEREC restorations are metal-free and biocompatible.
