When a problem affects your smile, you can be eager to see that problem resolved in the shortest time possible. While it is important to feel confident in the outcome of a restorative dental procedure, it can be frustrating to have a vulnerable tooth that goes unprotected. Fortunately, our Upton, MA dentist’s office has technology that allows us to shorten treatment times for patients who require dental crowns. While other practices tend to need two appointments to complete the restoration of a tooth with a crown, we can produce and place one in just a single visit! The crowns made with this technology are constructed with a ceramic material that can imitate the appearance of your healthy tooth.
We Can Have Your Dental Crown Ready In As Little As One Appointment
CEREC technology puts all of the technology needed to design custom dental crowns under our roof. From the beginning of the process through the end, you are able to remain in one location. We are able to digitally measure a tooth before preparing it to receive its restoration. Once we have the necessary measurements, we can create a digital design of the crown before producing it with an in-office milling machine. At this point, all that will be left is physically securing the crown so that it provides lasting support for your tooth and smile!
How Dental Crowns Help Patients Regain Their Oral Health And Bite Function
Dental crowns provide protection against damage and infection while also giving you back the ability to bite and chew without discomfort. The ceramic material our crowns are made with will be strong enough to absorb pressure when you bite down, so you can maintain a natural bite motion. Its custom fit can also ensure that it remains comfortable, and that it stays in place through the years to keep your tooth safe.
Avoid Future Dental Problems By Staying Consistent With Checkups
While it can be a relief to know that your dental crown can be ready in just one appointment, remember that crowns require permanent modifications to your tooth structure. Your goal should be to minimize alterations to teeth, and to avoid problems that might call for restorative treatments. Routine dental exams help with this. During your visits, you receive important updates about your oral health and early warnings when something might be wrong. If a problem is found at a checkup, there may still be time to resolve the problem with a dental filling, which requires less work on your tooth structure.
