Did you know that dental crowns can be designed, fabricated, and placed in only one visit? No need for two to three visits for care. Instead, we can use the CEREC system to offer lifelike crowns on the same day. In today’s blog, your Sheridan, WY, dentist talks about creating our same-day dental crowns!
Treating Your Teeth
Dental crowns cover the entire visible portion of a tooth, all of the structure above the gum line. Which means we can address a variety of serious restorative and even cosmetic concerns. For example, placement could provide repair for cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. We can length the teeth worn down by bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). Placement could repair advanced tooth decay and even complete a root canal for an infected tooth too. We’ve used them to address misshapen teeth and even improve bite balance and chewing function as swell. They even aid in tooth replacement, helping people with minor tooth loss. One to two could support a custom dental bridge, while an individual one could restore a single tooth dental implant.
Single Visit Dental Restorations
You don’t need to set aside time for two to three visits. Instead, we can create and place a custom crown in only one visit. The same-day process is possible with the CEREC system. Our team will administer a numbing agent to keep you comfortable as we remove structure from the tooth. We then take digital images of the prepared tooth, which are used to create a digital impression. We upload the information in an onsite milling machine, which then fabricates the restoration from a solid block of dental ceramic. This material can absorb daily bite forces with ease, and we can even shade it to better blend with the smile and offer a lifelike appearance.
When the dental crown is ready, our team will check the fit and see if any last-minute adjustments are necessary. We then attach it to the tooth with a powerful bonding agent. Once in place, this restoration will look natural, providing a durable chewing surface, and last for years to come. Keeping your newly restored tooth strong is simple, and the same actions also protect your natural teeth. You should brush and floss each day, enjoy a diet low in sugar and starch, and of course, find time to see our team for a checkup and cleansing visit. If you have any questions, then give our team a call!
