    This is the best option when there is minimal space for a crown, strength is most important and esthetics are not compromised.

    Many crowns can be made through our Computer Assisted Design/Computer Assisted Manufacture process. The teeth are prepared for the crown, scanned with a laser and the crown is made by computer assisted design and milling. These crowns can often be made in one visit.
