Fancy Gap Dentist
At the offices of Dr. Marlon A. Goad, our Fancy Gap dentist has been pro
viding the best in dental services to the area for many years. We use state of the art materials and procedures to give all of our patients the best dental experience and most accurate test results. We offer restorative, general and cosmetic dentistry. Our cosmetic dentistry options include CEREC crowns, a revolutionary new type of dental crown. CEREC dental crowns are custom made crowns quickly fabricated in our dental offices. Crowns can help fix broken or cracked teeth, can be used to protect teeth after a root canal, and are often used to protect and cover dental implants. Sometimes they are also used to cover anchor teeth that support bridges.
Crowns are made from different types of materials, such as metal, ceramic, resin or porcelain. Depending on the type of material being used, the crown may take a longer time to fabricate. In this case, a temporary one may be applied during your dental visit. The benefit of having CEREC crowns done at by our Fancy Gap dentist is that CEREC crowns are made from one solid block of resin. This means they can be created right in our offices while you wait. There is no need to wear a temporary crown nor have to wait for one to be created off-site with these kinds of crowns. During a CEREC crown consultation, our computers digitally photograph the tooth and use an automated design system. This helps us create a match in shape, size and color to your teeth. These types of crowns are strong and durable. It makes them long lasting and favorable to patients who do not have the time to come in for multiple appointments.
Call today to find out if CEREC crowns are right for you. If they aren’t, our Fancy Gap dentist also offers traditional crowns in all metal, ceramic, resin and other metals like gold and silver. Metal crowns are less susceptible to breakage and include gold alloy, silver and nickel. Porcelain crowns are well matched to a tooth’s natural color making them ideal for front teeth. However, they can create more wear and tear on the surrounding teeth than metal fillings do and are prone to breakage.
