A dental crown covers your tooth and addresses a variety of cosmetic and restorative issues. While at one time, placement required two to three visits, we can now use a unique CAD/CAM system to create and place them in a single visit! In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about the CEREC system and how you can benefit from a custom crown restoration in virtually no time.
When You Need a Crown Placed
It goes without saying that there are countless factors and situations out there that can influence your smile’s overall health. What’s more? Tooth decay and gum infection are among the most common, and while this may be the case, they are far from the only concerns that you must worry about. Indeed, an effective preventive routine is our first line of defense when it comes to caring for our grins, but it only takes falling short in an area for bacteria and infection to take hold. In cases such as these, your next best line of defense involves restorative treatment.
Restorative dentistry often involves any treatment that aims to mitigate damage, remove infection or decay, and reinforce your tooth’s strength. Though there are a number of treatment options out there, none are as versatile as the dental crown.
Indeed, a dental crown restoration often consists of a hollow cap that is placed atop a specified structure and shaped to snugly fit around your tooth. Not only is used to prevent infection from spreading to other teeth but it can be used to promote appropriate healing following a root canal treatment or other restorative processes. To learn more about this process, give our team a call today.
The CEREC System
Though dental crowns used to take two to three visits to complete, the advent of CAD/CAM restorations makes it possible to receive your custom crown in as little as a single visit. In other words, you can leave your appointment satisfied with your treatment, which provides a lifelike appearance in a nearly seamless manner.
The CEREC system digitally measures your tooth and creates a design that is then manufactured with our on-site milling machine. What’s more? You will get to spend less time in a chair, and more time enjoying your beautifully restored grin.
Placing Your New Restoration
Not only can we craft your custom crown from start to finish during your visit, but you do not have to wait for us to place your restoration either! We customize treatment to closely fit your needs, and no longer does it have to be at the expense of multiple appointments and multiple missed days of work.
