Physical injuries that affect your smile can leave you with an impaired bite, an unhealthy tooth, and discomfort with your appearance. Your Upton, MA dentist is prepared to help you if you need to have work done on a tooth that is chipped, cracked, or harmed in some other way. In fact, we can actually make sure that the matter is resolved before it worsens by bringing you in for emergency dental treatment! At this appointment, we will be able to restore the tooth’s health, address physical trauma, and make sure that you can bite and chew without difficulties. The technology in our office that allows us to produce same-day crowns helps to shorten the treatment times of patients who need help after injuries.
Scheduling Emergency Care After An Injury
If your tooth is visibly damaged, if you are unable to bite and chew properly, or if you fear a possible infection, you should reach out to schedule dental care as soon as possible. By waiting on treatment, you become vulnerable to complications that put your tooth at risk and may call for more involved treatment. Dr. Goguen understands that problems can arise unexpectedly, and our practice is ready to receive individuals who need work done with little advanced notice.
We Can Determine How Your Injury Should Be Addressed
After you arrive at our office, we can take a careful look at your tooth to see how your injury should be addressed. Chips and cracks can sometimes be treated with cosmetic dental work. Porcelain veneers are effective at hiding injuries, and so is dental bonding treatment. If the damage is an oral health concern, we may recommend the use of a dental crown to make sure that your tooth stays safe. We can create a crown that matches the look and color of your healthy tooth.
Our Same-Day Crowns Can Shorten Your Wait For A Restoration
While many dental offices rely on third party dental labs to craft the restorations that their patients will need, our office actually has the technology needed to design and create your dental crown on site! We have CAD/CAM technology that enables us to digitally measure a tooth, determine the right shape and size for your crown, then produce it so that it can be placed over your tooth. Once you have your crown, you can once again smile, bite, and chew with confidence!
