Teeth that are weak, damaged or severely misshapen or discolored may benefit from dental crowns. Dr. Gauthier uses only the best materials to create natural looking dental crowns that are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. A dental crown is a customized “cap” that is placed over the tooth to restore its strength and improve its appearance. The latest dental materials practically eliminate the need for the use of metal in dental crowns which can discolor the teeth and cause discomfort. Dr. Gauthier’s use of modern, high quality materials ensures that your smile will have the look and feel of your natural teeth.
Same Day Dental Crowns
Dr. Gauthier is the first and only dentist in Northborough to have CEREC technology for same day dental crowns. CEREC uses advanced CAD/CAM technology to produce indirect ceramic restorations (Crowns, Caps, Inlays, Onlays and Veneers) in a single visit. Traditional dental crown procedures require two or three visits over several weeks and often involve uncomfortable preparation and temporary tooth caps. With the CEREC system, teeth can be restored in a single visit. After the tooth is prepared, a special camera takes an optical impression of the tooth, recording its exact specifications. Using the CAD/CAM software, the dental crown is digitally prepared and then sent to our in-office laboratory where the dental crown is created using the finest, tooth colored ceramic material.
