Choosing the right dentist in Avondale for your family requires a little research to ensure that your needs are met. We welcome questions because we want you to feel confident when you choose Avondale Dental Centre to care for your family's smiles.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Woman | One Day Crowns Avoldale Dental technology advances quickly. One of the modern services we introduced to Avondale Dental Centre is CEREC same-day dental crowns. 

How CEREC Crowns are Created

CEREC uses computer-aided design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) through the software we use and our in-house milling device. We take a digital impression of the tooth or teeth and upload the data to our software to design your restoration. From this data, our milling device fabricates your dental restoration out of durable ceramic.

Once the proper size and shape of the dental crown is determined, Dr Najar, Dr Crum or Dr Nekrutenk will apply the appropriate colour and shading to match adjacent teeth.

CEREC crowns offer quality and convenience, eliminating the need to wait for a lab-fabricated dental crown and a temporary restoration.

In some cases, however, we may recommend a lab-created crown. In these cases, we use a reputable local dental lab with skilled technicians for the finest results. We discuss all options with our patients and the benefits of each. The treatment path we take depends on your goals for the health and appearance of your smile.

Dental crowns may be part of your dental benefit under specific plans. However, for cosmetic purposes, there may be a fee. Your dentist will let you know the cost after your evaluation. The reason is that the price can vary based on the level of difficulty, crown type, and more.

How Does The Dental Crown Process Work?

We use dental crowns widely across dentistry. For example, a dental crown restores tooth stability if your tooth is weak following infection or trauma. A dental crown canolder couple hugging | dental crowns auckland also cover tooth flaws in cosmetic dentistry. And in tooth replacement, dental crowns cap dental implant posts (replacement roots) and anchor bridge teeth to supporting teeth to complete your smile.

And dental crowns require minimal care. As with natural teeth, brush and floss regularly and visit your Auckland dentist for exams and teeth cleans. You should also avoid biting on ice or sticky foods like taffy.

A tooth crown can save your weak, damaged tooth or improve its appearance by hiding flaws. To learn how much your tooth crown will cost—or if this restoration is suitable for your specific oral health issue—we welcome your call to arrange a consultation with the dentist.

Dental crowns in Auckland are tooth-shaped covers that your dentist cements over a treated tooth. Treating the tooth means removing old filling material or jagged bits for a clean fit. This is a painless process and done with a gentle hand!

The crown is coloured and shaped to specification so that it will match your neighbouring teeth.

We use crowns for the following:

  • After a root canal or trauma, your tooth may be unstable and at risk for fracture. A dental crown supports the tooth to prevent loss.
  • If you have a discoloured or cosmetically flawed tooth, we can use a dental crown to hide these issues.
  • For patients getting single dental implants, we use a dental crown to cap that implant after healing.
  • Dental crowns also work with a dental bridge to restore teeth by fixing them to neighbouring teeth.

Additionally, you care for your dental crowns as you do your natural teeth. This makes them the ideal restoration.

In our Avondale dental clinic, we are happy to help patients restore their smiles with dental crowns.
