Ceramic Crown and Implant Options Now Available at Richmond Family Dentistry




Dr. Olivia Hart, owner of Richmond Family Dentistry, has added Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) technology to offer her patients an alternative to metal crowns. CEREC uses computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) for the construction and production of same-day ceramic restorations.

        A dental crown restores the shape and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma, protecting it from further damage. In the past, that meant two appointments and an interim crown for several weeks. With CEREC, a milling machine creates a color-matched ceramic restoration from 3-D digital impressions of the patient’s mouth. Dr. Hart then utilizes a meticulous staining and firing method for a perfect blend with the patient’s natural dentition, and the crown is cemented into place and polished. In one visit, your smile is restored!

        Dr. Hart is also pleased to now offer zirconia implants, a metal-free implant option. With the white ceramic zirconia material, there is no risk of metal allergy and no gray line at the gum margin. Zirconia is strong, reliable, biocompatible and natural-looking.

        Dr. Hart is board certified in Integrative Medicine. Richmond Family Dentistry offers dentistry with a natural touch, including a holistic approach to dental wellness, an eco-friendly office that utilizes biocompatible materials and guidance in metal compatibility and metal toxicity testing.
