Crowns
 

Crowns are the primary way to restore a tooth that is severely decayed, cracked or broken, or has had an endodontic (root canal) procedure. Mount Hope Dental utilizes same-day, E4D CAD/CAM technology to design and place your crown all in one appointment.

The doctor creates a virtual design of the crown and sends it to the E4D milling center located in office. Once the porcelain crown has been milled, it is fired and glazed in an oven, then cemented.

There are several advantages to an E4D fabricated crown over a laboratory produced crown:

  • The whole process can be completed in a single visit
  • The dentist controls every aspect of the construction process
  • The crowns are all porcelain (no metal)
  • Since the process is CAD/CAM driven the fit of the crown is very precise
