A dental crown caps a tooth and can be used to address restorative and cosmetic issues, and we can craft and place them in only one visit. These can help restore your smile and offer lifelike results too! In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about placing our custom dental crowns in only one visit.
The Need for Placing Dental Restorations
A dental crown covers the visible portion of your tooth, so we can use them to address an array or minor and severe restorative concern. For example, we can employ crowns to repair cracked, chipped, or worn-down teeth. Placement can reshape malformed teeth and improve bite balance and chewing function too. Restorations can also treat more advanced cases of tooth decay, or address an infected tooth by completing a root canal procedure. If you have minor tooth loss, we could use one or two to support a dental bridge, or use one to restore a single tooth dental implant. With the use of lifelike materials, we can address restorative concerns and offer cosmetic benefits as well.
Creating and Placing Them in One Visit
We don’t need you to set aside time for multiple office visits. Instead, we can create and place them in only one visit with CAD/CAM technology. To begin, we will numb your tooth and then gently remove structure from it. Our team will take digital images of the prepared tooth, which we use to create a 3D computer impression. After we design the restoration, we upload the information into an onsite milling machine, which crafts the finished product from a solid block of ceramic. The material is shaded to ensure your crown will blend with the rest of your smile. We then check the fit and make any necessary adjustments before we attach the finished crown with a powerful bonding agent. You leave the office with a completed tooth.
Taking Steps to Protect Them
To help keep your restoration bright and safeguard the tooth it is attached to, and also protect the rest of your smile, you should take time to brush and floss daily, consume a healthy diet low in sugar, and avoid tobacco products. We also urge people to see us for a checkup and cleaning every six months too, so we can keep a close eye on your smile. If you have any questions about how our team will protect and restore your smile with a custom-made dental crown in only one visit, then contact our team today.
