Dental enamel is a remarkably strong substance, which is why tooth injuries are not a frequent issue even as we continue to wear them down by biting and chewing on a daily basis. With that said, problems do sometimes occur, and an injury can leave you with a serious oral health problem. Our Greenville, TX dentist’s office is ready to take on a problem with your dental well-being if you chip, crack, or otherwise hurt a tooth. Because we provide same-day dental crowns for patients, we can actually restore a problem with your smile in less time than you might think possible. These crowns are custom-made at our office, and they can be tinted in order to match your appearance.
Same-Day Crowns Are Attractive And Durable
Same-day dental crowns make restorative dentistry more convenient, but they offer more than just a shorter treatment time. The crown created for your problem tooth can be carefully designed in order to match its color, shape, and overall appearance. Constructed of durable ceramic, this restoration can also provide continued support as you bite and chew, which means your bite function will not be changed by your treatment.
Creating And Placing Your Crown During Your Appointment
Modern digital technology allows us to measure and design your crown at our practice. Once the appropriate measurements are taken and a model for your restoration is created, we can produce a lifelike dental crown with a milling machine on site. With some preparatory work, we can make sure that the crown fits over your tooth without issue, and that it does not bother your neighboring teeth. The secure hold of the crown can allow you to bite, chew, and speak while remaining confident that your restoration will stay in place.
What Will Happen If A Tooth Cannot Be Saved?
There are some issues with dental damage that are severe to the point of making a tooth extraction necessary. If a tooth cannot be saved, we can carefully remove it before planning treatment to restore your full smile with a prosthetic. Dental bridges and dental implants both provide appliances that can be permanently put in place. In addition to restoring your appearance, these prostheses are secure enough to support your bite!
