When it comes to restoring a tooth that is injured, or one that is affected by decay, the right approach to treatment is important. Because injuries and decay lead to permanent damage, a restoration must be permanent. To stay secure and comfortable, it is important that a dental filling or dental crown be the right shape and size. At our Upton, MA dentist’s office, we can provide you with a permanent dental crown that is the right shape, size, and color to fit in your smile, and we can offer it in as little as one appointment. CEREC technology gives us all of the tools needed to digitally design your crown, produce it, and place it for you. This makes the work of restoring a tooth more convenient, while still ensuring you have results that last!
How Dental Crowns Protect Teeth
While a dental filling only covers the specific area where a cavity formed, a dental crown will cover the entire tooth above your gum line. With this coverage, the tooth stays safe from external pressure, and it remains guarded against a potential infection. Crowns are designed to protect teeth even through years of biting and chewing pressures, which means the presence of it will not demand a change in your bite function.
Using CEREC Technology To Create Your Custom Restoration
Thanks to the CEREC technology at our practice, we are able to do the work of preparing your tooth, designing your crown, and producing it all at our practice. This removes the need for you to make multiple appointments, and it ensures your crown is created by us, and not a third party dental lab. The technology used includes CAD/CAM technology that we use to digitally create and design the custom crown to fit your tooth.
The Right Restoration Can Provide Lasting Protection For Your Tooth
Because we can complete your dental crown in as little as one appointment, we can avoid the need to place a temporary crown on the tooth. The restoration you receive will be strong enough to absorb pressure from biting and chewing, and it can keep the tooth guarded against any future harm. It is important that the restoration be durable enough to last, as problems with decay and injury demand permanent protection for teeth.
