Our team provides dental crowns to address cosmetic crowns and also treat serious restorative issues, such as damaged teeth or tooth decay. With the use of CEREC technology, we can do this in only one visit, and still offer a natural-looking appearance. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist walks you through the process of creating lifelike same-day dental crowns.
The Benefits of Placing Restorations
A dental crown covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, which means we can address serious issues and prevent complications down the road. For example, our team can treat tooth decay too severe for a filling, or complete a root canal for an infected tooth. We can repair cracked or chipped teeth, and add length to ones worn down by teeth grinding. Restorations can also help remove overall bite balance and chewing function, and even aid in tooth replacement! We can use one or two to support a dental bridge, or one to restore a single tooth dental implant.
Creating a Same-Day Restoration
We don’t need two to three visits to complete them! Instead, our team can finish the entire process in only one visit. To begin, we will numb your tooth and then gently remove structure from it, making room for your new crown. We then take detailed digital images from multiple angles, combining them to create a 3D digital impression. Our team uses this to design your restoration and then uploads the information into an onsite milling machine, which creates the finished product from a solid block of porcelain, which we then shade to blend with the rest of your smile. Next, we check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and connect your restoration using a powerful bonding agent.
Ensuring a Lifelike Appearance
We want to make sure your finished product looks natural and matches the rest of your smile. We may even brighten your teeth with teeth whitening beforehand to ensure it matches your brightest smile. After all, we want you to feel coined when you smile. Don’t live with damaged or aching teeth, or with poor bite balance or tooth loss. Instead, schedule a visit with our team so we can see if you need a crown or a prosthetic. We’re ready to help you enjoy your best possible smile, so give us a call today!
