Procera all ceramic dental crowns offer the most realistic and strong tooth restoration. The crowns are made using an all-ceramic material that makes the tooth both highly durable and beautiful.
Our cosmetic dentistry patients love Procera crowns for many reasons:
- Functionality, durability and aesthetic appeal
- Cutting edge technology that ensures an exceptional fit
- Elimination of tooth sensitivity
- Ability for gum regrowth to make it as natural looking as possible
What is the process for getting a Procera crown?
First, our cosmetic dentistry experts take highly accurate impressions from which your crown can be created. Then, we prepare the area to receive the tooth. This involves molding the size and shape of the tooth to allow the crown to sit naturally. We will work with you to choose the precise shade the crown should be in order to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth.
The model we take of your tooth then is scanned, and using computer software it is sent to a lab where your custom Procera crown is created. Before you leave, we’ll place a temporary crown until your permanent one is ready.
Once your permanent crown is completed, we’ll remove your temporary crown and place the Procera crown. Once we are assured of a proper fit, we will cement it in place.
