If you need dental work for an oral health issue, you should know that a procedure to restore your health will end with the placement of a permanent restoration. What this effectively means is that a filling or crown will remain in place to protect your tooth; when you receive a crown, that restoration will be responsible for absorbing bite pressure. Our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office can make smile care more convenient by providing same-day crowns made with CEREC technology. This convenient treatment option provides a custom restoration that actually imitates a healthy tooth. You can be relieved to know that in addition to providing a convenient treatment option, this will still provide lasting support so that you will not have to worry about the safety of the tooth.
Can A Same-Day Crown Really Offer Long-Term Benefits?
Same-day dental crowns are made within the office, so they can be ready in just one appointment. The convenience of this means that you do not have to depend on a temporary crown, and that you will not be reliant on a third party to produce the restoration that remains on your tooth. The crowns produced with this technology are made from a durable ceramic material that both imitates healthy enamel and also provides the kind of functional support that lets you bite and chew without problems.
Using CEREC Technology To Produce Your Restoration
The process of placing a CEREC crown starts with preparatory work, including work to capture the detailed measurements of the tooth being restored. With digital imaging technology, we can capture what we need, then use those details to produce a detailed model for your restoration. Once this information is captured, we can produce the crown for you and put it in place. At this point, you can feel confident in the protection afforded to your tooth, and you can feel relieved to see that treatment has not changed your smile!
What Else Can Your Dentist Do To Take On Smile Concerns?
Less severe dental damage and naturally occurring flaws can be fixed with a more conservative porcelain veneer. A crown has to completely cover your tooth above your gums, while a veneer only covers its front surface. This means more of your enamel is ultimately preserved. It is also possible for us to fix problems by providing dental bonding work that removes the need for permanent restorations.
