When you need a dental crown, we can provide one in a single visit with our CEREC system, employing CAD/CAM technology. In addition, these dental restorations will be lifelike in appearance! In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about how we create lifelike and cosmetic dental crowns in only one visit.
When Teeth Require Dental Restoration
A dental crown can cap your tooth, covering the entire visible portion of it. Which means we can use them to correct a number of serious oral health concerns. When a tooth is cracked, chipped, or broken, or worn down due to teeth grinding, we can repair it with a custom crown. The same restoration could also reshape malformed teeth, or aid in the improvement of bite balance and chewing function. If you have missing teeth, one or two could secure a dental bridge, while one could restore an individual dental implant. Since we use lifelike materials, these can also offer cosmetic benefits upon placement.
The process starts with a simple dental exam, in which we use digital x-rays to assess the concern and plan the treatment. If a restoration is needed, we will then remove structure from the tooth and take digital images from multiple angles, creating a 3D impression. The impression is then used to design the crown. We upload the information into an onset milling machine, which fabricates them from a solid block of porcelain. The porcelain material can handle daily bite forces and pressure easily, and also has the ability to be color matched to blend with your smile. We then attach the completed dental restoration with a powerful bonding agent, so you enjoy a newly restored tooth in only one visit, with lifelike results.
Maintaining Your New Restorations
The same care that protects the restored tooth and keeps it brig can also safeguard your natural teeth from the impact of cavities and periodontal disease. You should brush and floss daily to remove stray food particles and control plaque buildup, then see us for a cleaning every six months to remove the harmful layers of plaque completely. We will monitor your smile for the earliest signs of trouble too. You also protect your smile by eating a healthier diet and avoiding tobacco products.
