In the event that your tooth is damaged by decay or a physical injury, treatment will need to take place. When a problem is serious enough to require a dental crown, many dental practices will ask their patients to arrange two separate appointments to receive their custom restoration. At our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office, patients can actually have dental crowns that are ready in just a single visit! We use CEREC technology to make custom dental crowns we can use to cap teeth that have been restored after issues with injury or decay. In addition to restoring the way your tooth looks, we can make sure that the tooth is secure enough to continue absorbing bite pressure!
A Dental Crown Should Be Custom-Made To Restore Your Tooth
To make sure that a crown fits properly and stays secure, it will need to be carefully designed to fit over your tooth without bothering its neighbors. For many practices, crowns are actually made by third party dental labs. Because of this, they have to take measurements of a patient’s tooth, send that information to a lab, and have the patient return when their custom crown is ready. While this can ensure that your restoration is a good fit, it can be frustrating to be left dependent on a temporary crown while you wait for your follow-up appointment.
Undergoing Treatment With A Same-Day Crown
Because our practice has access to technology that produces same-day crowns, we can make sure that your smile is fully restored in just one visit! CEREC technology helps us digitally design the restoration that you need before we produce it. An in-office milling machine will craft a ceramic crown that is made to match the color and texture of your healthy enamel. Once in place, you can enjoy functional bite support as well as defense against potential problems with the vulnerable tooth being covered.
We Can Help You Avoid Future Problems That Make Crowns Necessary
It is not always necessary to use dental crowns when treating cavities. If an issue with decay is identified in time, we can instead use a dental filling to restore your tooth. A filling provides us with a more conservative answer to your dental trouble, as it will be applied directly to the area where a cavity formed and leave surrounding enamel alone. With a combination of smart daily habits and regular dental exams, you can make future problems with decay less likely.
