When you have a cavity or an infection, or should a dental emergency such as cracked or chipped tooth develop, then you may need a crown. Fortunately, your Greenville, TX, dentist not only offers dental restorations, but we use advanced technology to create them in a single visit. In today’s blog, we’re talking about the benefits of our same day dental crowns.
When Do You Need a Crown?
A dental crown is a restoration that covers the entire visible portion of your tooth. In the past, they were only made from amalgam, gold, silver, and other metals. Now, we can employ strong and lifelike materials to ensure a restoration that blends seamlessly with your smile. For example, ceramic mimics the translucent nature of tooth enamel, and can also be shaded to match the color of surrounding teeth. All the while, the material also has the ability to absorb serious bite forces. We may suggest one for an advanced case of tooth decay, or to complete a root canal infection for people with infected teeth. They also address minor and severe breakage, as well as chips and cracks.
The CEREC System
If you begin to experience serious pain in your smile, or if you sustain damage, then contact our team today. We will carefully examine your smile and if we find you need treatment, we will remove structure from the tooth and take detailed digital impressions. The images we gathered will be combined to create a 3D model, allowing us to plan and design your crown. We upload the designs into the onsite CEREC milling machine, which crafts the final product from ceramic. In the same visit, we check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and then place your finished restoration with a powerful bonding agent. In just one sitting, we can restore you smile to a healthier and more attractive state!
