If you have teeth that are badly decayed or damaged, it’s important that you visit Dr. Nico as soon as possible. At his office serving patients through the greater Atlanta area, you are able to undergo one visit cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Rather than making multiple visits to the dentist, you only need to visit our practice once. One possible option for treating badly damaged or decayed teeth is dental crowns, which are both effective and aesthetically appealing.
About Akron Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are custom-designed caps that fit over a damage tooth. Crowns serve two major functions: protecting the tooth and restoring its appearance. When the crown is in place, further damage or decay will not affect the tooth, and you’ll be much less likely to feel pain or acute sensitivity. In addition, the crown is crafted from ceramic materials which resemble your natural teeth. Using CEREC dental restoration technology, a dental crown can be designed, crafted, and set all in one convenient visit.
Dental Problems That Dental Crowns Can Address
Dental crowns are effective at addressing major tooth decay that cannot be treated effectively using other dental restoration methods. Dental crowns are also effective if you have a tooth that is severely chipped or cracked as a result of an accident or injury. If you are missing a single tooth, a dental crown can be used to cap a dental implant.
Are Dental Crowns the Right Solution for Me?
Dental crowns may be a good option for you and your dental care needs if you have a tooth that is severely decayed or damaged. Generally, Dr. Nico prefers to use inlays and onlays when he can. Inlays and onlays involve less preparation of a tooth compared to dental crowns, which means less potential trauma to your healthy tooth structure. This is all part of our approach to same day dentistry, which addresses your immediate needs while also taking into account your long-term dental health.

Akron Dental Restoration Technology
Getting a dental restoration used to involve two visits to the dentist that were weeks apart. In the weeks between the two separate dentist visits, the dental restorations were crafted at an off-site dental lab. With CEREC technology, this extended wait is no longer necessary. Dr. Randolph Nico has been offering one visit cosmetic and restorative dentistry to Atlanta area patients for 10 years. The first dentist in Alpharetta to use this state-of-the-art technology, Dr. Nico’s knowledge about dental care will be of great benefit to you.
About CEREC Dental Technology
CEREC stands for Ceramic Reconstruction. The CEREC machine itself uses digital technology to create an impression of a damaged tooth and design a custom restoration of the tooth. The CEREC machine then mills the customized dental restoration in-office, which means no need to rely on an off-site dental lab.
How CEREC Technology Works
Using a three dimensional digital model of your teeth, the CEREC machine will custom design the dental restoration. Using his years of experience in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, Dr. Nico can adjust this model for the dental restoration based on your needs.
Once the design of the dental restoration is set, the information is then sent to a milling unit. This milling unit will then create the actual dental restoration using a block of special ceramic material that closely resembles the composition of your teeth. This newly created dental restoration is then bonded to the tooth that needs to be treated. Final adjustments or alterations can be made to the dental restoration as needed.
The Benefits of CEREC Technology
There are many benefits of CEREC dental restoration technology. One of the biggest benefits is that CEREC technology saves you time and hassle. Only one visit is necessary to get the restorations designed, created, and placed.
Two other important benefits are durability and appearance. CEREC dental restorations are approximately three times stronger than the restorations that are created in a dental lab. In addition, CEREC restorations blend in with your natural teeth, which means that no one will realize that you have dental restorations in place.
