A dental crown is used to cover a tooth when it is broken, damaged or has a large cavity. There is no need to live with broken, stained or fragile teeth! Our customized dental crowns can protect your teeth and restore your smile. In most cases, we’re even able to create and fit your crown in one visit.

Natural-Looking and Feeling Dental Crowns Near Wilmington, NC
If your tooth is too severely fractured or decayed for a filling, a crown can be used to protect it from further damage and pain. Crowns are also usually recommended after root canal procedures to prevent fracture.
Dental crowns are made to fit over the damaged or affected tooth like a cover or cap for a solution that looks, feels and functions like your natural tooth.
Same-Day CEREC Tooth Crowns
Thanks to the CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) assistive technology utilized in Dr. Otero’s office, he is typically able to diagnose an issue, create the crown, and fit it all in a single appointment. This process is much more convenient than a traditional office where it would take two office visits, impressions and a lab to complete a dental crown.
This state-of-the-art CEREC system uses 3D photography and CAD/CAM technology to assist Dr. Otero in designing your custom crown without the need to take impressions. The milling unit then builds the restoration quickly and efficiently while you wait comfortably in our office.
