When you have issues with your smile, such as advanced decay and infected teeth, or major damage, then you may need a restoration. Our dental crowns can provide a lifelike result in only one visit. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about how we help smiles with our dental crowns.
When to Seek Treatment
When your tooth becomes cracked or chipped, or develops tooth decay or infection, this could lead to painful symptoms like toothaches and sensitivity. The risk of losing the tooth is also possible. Treatment to restore it helps prevent discomfort and major complications. When you have an issue regarding dental damage or cavities/infection, you should let us know. Our team will take a close look with digital imaging technology, and then plan the treatment with precision and accuracy. For issues too severe for fillings and bonding, we could recommend a crown, which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth.
Creating Crowns with CEREC
Instead of requiring multiple visits, we could offer repair in only one visit. To begin, our team will numb the tooth receiving treatment and then gently remove structure from it. We take detailed digital images of the tooth, which we use to create a 3D computer model. We use the model to design the restoration and then upload the information into an onsite CEREC milling machine. The machine then creates the restorations from lifelike ceramic. We will check the fit and then attach the finished product with a powerful bonding agent. The entire process takes only one sitting, and the results are lifelike and able to blend with your smile. Ceramic is also durable and able to absorb daily bite forces and pressure too.
We could use this to repair damaged teeth, treat advanced decay, or complete a root canal for an infected tooth. Ceramic crowns also help secure dental bridges in place and could restore a single tooth dental implant. Once in place, routine care helps keep them bright and protects the teeth we’ve attached them to from the impact of tooth decay and gum disease. Be sure you brush and floss daily, and make time to see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning to keep an eye on your smile and remove harmful plaque buildup.
