"Best Dentist I Have Ever Been To"

I had a really good experience getting a cap at Dr Moffit's office. I was surprised that I didn't need to have dental impressions made. 3 D images were taken and a machine used these images to create a crown. I was happy that it was done all in one visit and the cap looks exactly my old tooth. What a difference between this procedure compared to the other caps I had.

Dr Wilkhu is the best Dentist I have ever been to. From the office staff to the hygenists to the Dentist and his assistants they are all top notch. I went to Dr Wilkhu after having a bad experience with another dentist. Dr Wilkhu had done a great job for my mother and his reviews were great so I thought I would give him a try. I have been going to him for about three years now.

CEREC vs. Lab-Fabricated Crowns

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

CEREC logo and machineIf your damaged tooth is located in a discreet area of the mouth or budget is a concern, our dentists can use CEREC to create stunning, highly durable same-day crowns. CEREC allows us to create dental crowns using computer-aided design and manufacturing. The machine is equipped with a milling unit that directly translates the digital design into a new custom crown out of a single block of porcelain. In most cases, your CEREC crown can be ready for placement on the same day as your initial appointment, avoiding the need for a temporary crown.

Lab-Crafted Restorations

Our decade-long relationship with a trusted local lab is one of the factors that our patients appreciate the most when undergoing restorative treatment. The lab technicians cater to each and every individual. They even visit our office for an in-person shade match to ensure your restorations closely mirror the texture and color of your surrounding teeth. Depending on your budget and other factors, we can create your crowns from a variety of materials including porcelain, IPS e.max, or zirconia.

Crowns and Dental Implants

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

Missing teeth result in additional dental problems such as shifting teeth, jaw misalignment, jawbone atrophy, and facial collapse. For most patients, Dr. Wilkhu can place and restore dental implants at our Merritt Island, FL, dentistry office–without referring you to an outside specialist for dental care.

Dental Implant Recovery

If you have a missing tooth, you will undergo dental implant surgery approximately four to six months prior to receiving your permanent crown. Once the site is fully healed, you will return to our office to have your permanent crown or dental bridge attached to your implant.

Dental Crown Treatment Steps

Your Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation at our dentistry office, one of our dentists will assess the status of your oral health to ensure that a dental crown is the best choice for you.

Reshape the Tooth

For those who are receiving a traditional crown, one of our doctors will first reshape your tooth to safely and securely accommodate your new dental crown.

Digital Impressions

A technician from our partner lab will come to our office to take impressions of your teeth and match the material of your crown to the shade of your smile.

CEREC Crowns

One of our dentists will take digital impressions and upload them directly to the CEREC unit, which will then fabricate the crown in less than an hour. This avoids the need for a temporary crown.

Crowns from a Lab

If the custom crown will be fabricated by our trusted lab, we usually get the product back in two to three days.

Placement of the Restoration

Once your permanent crown has been created by either CEREC or the lab, we will use a special cement to adhere it to your tooth.
