When you look at your options for dental work, you can have several hopes. The right results can obviously be desirable, but you should also feel confident that the experience of care itself will be a positive one. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we can provide a positive treatment experience when you have oral health trouble, even when that trouble is serious enough to require a crown. Thanks to CEREC technology, we have everything we need to create and place dental crowns in as little as one appointment. Your restoration will be carefully designed before the production occurs, which can ensure that it is the right shape, size, and color to have cosmetic and functional benefits.
A Dental Crown Provides Important Protection
Dental crowns provide important support for patients whose teeth have been harmed by decay or physical trauma. Unlike fillings, which only cover a limited area and are less effective against more serious issues, crowns provide reliable support by completely covering a tooth. To make sure the restoration stays secure and looks natural, and to make sure it does not cause problems for neighboring teeth, we take care to closely measure the tooth and prepare it for treatment. By doing so, we can ensure that your procedure will preserve your smile and remain comfortable.
Using CEREC Technology To Prepare Your Crown
CEREC technology gives us the means to produce crowns on-site, which means there is no waiting period to complete treatment. At first, we will use CAM/CAD technology to measure your tooth and determine the dimensions of your crown and make a digital design of it. From that design, we can produce a ceramic crown with our in-office milling machine. Once we confirm that it is the right shape and size to provide the right results, we can place the restoration and keep your tooth safe!
Keeping Up With Smile Care To Protect Teeth And Restorations
Keeping up with your regular dental exams will help you avoid the kinds of problems that make dental crowns and fillings necessary. At these appointments, you can count on a thorough teeth cleaning to fight the buildup of plaque and tartar on your smile, and you can look forward to reviews that closely check for problems. Early detection can lead to more conservative care; while you can still require a filling for a smaller cavity, you can preserve more of your healthy enamel and enjoy less involved treatment.
