If something negatively affects your smile, it can be a relief to know that the problem can be promptly addressed. At our Upton, MA dentist’s office, we can address potentially serious problems with tooth decay or dental damage in as little as a single day thanks to CEREC technology. With this technology, we are able to design, craft, and place a custom dental crown on a vulnerable tooth in the span of one visit. For many other practices, restorative dental work that requires the placement of a dental crown can take at least two appointments, as they have to rely on a third party to provide a custom restoration.
CEREC Technology Can Produce A Custom Crown In One Appointment
CEREC technology makes it possible for our practice to have a custom dental crown put in place with minimal delays. We can digitally measure your tooth, use that information to design a ceramic crown, and then produce that crown with an in-office milling machine. The restoration that is provided to you is one that has been carefully designed to match the color and size of the tooth being restored. This means that in addition to helping you regain a natural bite, your crown can restore your appearance!
When Is It Necessary To Restore A Tooth With A Crown?
Not every dental problem requires the placement of a crown. If you come in to see us for cavity treatment, we may be able to provide you with a tooth-colored filling based on the size and effect of decay. Fillings are the first restoration recommended because they are smaller and take up less space, and they limit changes to your healthy tooth structure. If you are looking for a solution to a problem with a chipped or cracked tooth, a cosmetic dental procedure may be all that is required to restore the way you look. Porcelain veneers and tooth bonding procedures require less modification of your tooth, so you can preserve more of your natural enamel.
We Can Help You Avoid Future Issues That Require Restorative Treatment
Even if modern dental restorations are more attractive than past fillings and crowns, you should strive to avoid problems with dental decay. We can help you protect your smile at every routine dental exam and cleaning. During each semiannual visit to our practice, you can look forward to having stubborn tartar removed, and you can receive detailed feedback about the condition of your teeth from your dentist. These services are important for patients, as they make it easier to avoid future cavities.
