When we take care of a patient’s smile, our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office will look for the most conservative treatment solution that can provide lasting value. In some cases, this can mean providing a dental filling or cosmetic procedure, but there are issues with your health and appearance that require dental crowns. Fortunately, we use CEREC technology to provide these restorations. What this does is make the process of caring for a tooth more convenient, as we can complete this work in as little as one appointment! You can enjoy this convenience, and you can also feel confident in the results of treatment, as your crown can closely match your natural enamel.
We Can Take Less Time To Place Your Crown
The right dental crown needs to be just the right shape and size, and it needs to be a good match for the color and texture of your enamel. Careful planning and preparatory work can be required to make sure you have a permanent restoration that suits you. At other dental offices, the need for effective preparation and the need to have a dental lab create your restoration can stretch your treatment across two appointments. However, when you visit our office for care, you can have the right restoration made in less time, as we provide same-day crowns! We can do this because CEREC technology lets us measure teeth, design restorations, and produce them in an in-office milling machine.
Receiving Your Custom Restoration
CEREC technology includes CAD/CAM technology, which gives us the capacity to measure your tooth and make a design of your crown with digital tools. Once the design of your crown is ready, we can have it produced in a milling machine, confirm it is right for you, and put it in place. The restorations we make with this technology are ceramic, so they can offer bite support and also provide cosmetic benefits.
Alternatives To Treatment With Dental Crowns
If you identify a problem with your oral health or appearance in time, you can enjoy a more conservative treatment. While crowns placed at our office take less time, we still have to provide preparatory work that changes more of your tooth structure. If we catch a cavity in time, we can place a dental filling that matches your enamel. For treatment to address chips and cracks, we can discuss the advantages of using veneers or tooth bonding treatments.
