After root canal therapy has been completed, it is usually necessary to place a crown over the tooth for protection. With our CEREC system, we can design, mill and fabricate your new porcelain crown in about an hour. Your entire procedure will be completed in one office visit; you won’t need a temporary crown or a second appointment.
Root canal therapy treats a tooth that is infected or vulnerable to infection (1). We open the tooth to access its interior (2). We remove the pulp and nerve tissue and clean the tooth’s interior (3). Then we fill the tooth with inert material to seal it, and place a crown for strength, beauty, and protection (4).
