Restore Your Smile In One Day

Cleveland, TX, dentist offers same day dental crowns

We know you do your best to take care of your smile. However, accidents can still happen. If you have injured one of your teeth with a chip, crack, or fracture, it is important to have this treated as soon as possible. The team at Cleveland Family Dentistry in Cleveland, TX, uses CEREC technology to help restore your smile in one appointment. In today’s blog, learn about what this technology is and the benefits it offers.

Why We Use Crowns For Repairs

Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that can cover your tooth after an injury. These can be used to protect the area as well as restore it. This is a great solution if a patient has harmed a tooth through chipping, cracking, or fracturing the structure. They can help ensure that the function of your pearly white has not been disturbed after the injury. Other options, such as bonding composite resin, may be used if the harm is more minor. For more serious injuries, crowns are used. If this restoration is not done, the structure may need to be removed to save your oral health. This restoration can last for several years with proper treatment and can be made to look like your natural smile.

How CEREC Crowns Work

CEREC is a technology used to create this dental restoration in one day. In the past, receiving a dental cap could take several weeks. You would first need a consultation, then measurements would be sent to a lab to create, and finally, it would be bonded to the area. The waiting period for this restoration could leave room for potential injuries to the harmed tooth. With CEREC technology, you may be able to receive a crown in a single day. If you have harmed one of your pearly whites, schedule an urgent dentist visit. During this visit, they will examine the area and determine if this restoration will be useful. Then, the measurements will be sent to our onsite machine to create the cap. When it is ready, we will bond it to your tooth.

Maintaining Your Dental Crown

You may be wondering if this CEREC restoration will last as long as a traditional one. The answer is, yes, it will last for several years with proper care. These are made of highly durable material, usually porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal and can withstand the pressure from chewing and speaking. After receiving this restoration, you should continue practicing oral hygiene at home and visiting your dentist biannually. If you have any concerns about your cap, talk to your dentist.
