When you have a cavity too severe for a filling, or a chipped tooth too damaged for a bonding procedure, our team may create and place a crown. Using advanced CAD/CAM CEREC technology, our team will craft and place a lifelike dental crown in only one visit! Your Cleveland, TX, dentist looks at how our team helps you enjoy your healthiest, and most attractive smile, in today’s blog.
When You Need a Full Crown
A full crown covers everything above the gum line on the tooth. We may use these to address more severe cosmetic and restorative concerns. For example, if you have a case of advanced tooth decay. We could also treat an infection by completing a root canal procedure. Placement has helped repair chipped and cracked teeth, and corrected misshapen ones too. We’ve placed them to repair teeth worn down by teeth grinding too. If you have a missing tooth, we could employ dental restorations to secure a dental bridge into place, or to restore a single tooth dental implant.
Designing and Crafting One in a Single Visit
The key to their success and longevity is the custom-made nature, which ensures proper bite balance and a comfortable fit. We start by removing structure from the tooth receiving them to make room for the restoration. Next, we take detailed impressions and images with advanced technology. The information is then used to create a 3D model and is uploaded into the CEREC onsite milling machine. The machine then crafts the finished product from a solid block of ceramic.
Ceramic is strong and durable, but can also be color-matched to blend with your smile. When the restoration is ready, we place it with a powerful bonding agent. Creation and placement all happen in one sitting, so you leave our office with a completely restored smile!
Routine care could help your restoration last for years to come, and also protect natural teeth. You should brush and floss daily, cut back on sugary foods and drinks, and of course, see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning visit. These actions will help protect teeth from issues like decay and infection, as well as gingivitis and gum disease. If you play sports, be sure to wear a mouthguard to prevent chips and cracks from occurring following injury. If you have any questions, then please give our team a call today to learn more.
