When you have a tooth that is cracked or broken, or suffering from advanced decay or infection, then optimal oral health may mean placing a crown. Fortunately, we can offer a natural looking crown in only one visit! In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about our long-lasting same-day crowns!
The Aesthetic Benefits
Dental crowns help repair teeth, offering restorative treatment for serious issues ranging from decayed and infected teeth, to cracked or chipped ones too. Instead of metal, we can use a more lifelike material. Ceramic is very strong and durable, and can handle your daily bite forces with ease. Our team can use them to address issues with misshapen teeth too, and to aid in tooth replacement by anchoring a dental bridge in place or completing a single tooth dental implant. Ceramic can be shaded to blend with the teeth and is translucent like tooth enamel, so the results look natural.
Our team doesn’t need two visits to repair a tooth with a restoration. Instead, we can offer same-day dental crowns with the CEREC system. Combining CAD/CAM technology with an onsite milling machine, we can design, craft, and place your completed restoration in only one visit. To begin, our team will need to numb the tooth so we can comfortably remove structure to make room for the restoration. We then take images of these prepared teeth with digital technology, using them to create a 3D computer impression. Once the dentist designs them, we upload the information in the milling machine, which crafts the finished product from a block of ceramic. In addition to repair, we can also create bridges and implant restorations with the same process. We then check the fit and attach the finished product with a powerful bonding agent, so you have a lifelike restoration in one visit.
When Smiles Need One
As we discussed above, we can use them to address tooth decay too severe for a filling alone, or to complete a root canal for infected or abscessed teeth, offering lifelike results and a dependable chewing surface. We can repair damaged teeth, including major breakage, as well as chips and fractures. Our team can also correct malformed teeth and improve overall bite balance and chewing function too. Again, they can help with tooth replacement so you avoid the major complications of untreated tooth loss.
