When a dental injury or case of decay injures your tooth beyond repair with a filling, a dental crown can offer the necessary strength to restore your smile. We can also employ this technology for cosmetic improvements for oddly shaped teeth as well. We know how much you value your time, so we provide same-day dental crowns to install your restoration in a single visit.
At your Rochester, MN dental practice, we stress the importance of restoring your bite after experiencing severe damage to one of your teeth. Left untreated, an injured tooth can alter your alignment and increase your risk for additional oral problems. By treating your decay or trauma with a cap, we can return the appearance of your smile and help you regain the function of your bite.
Why We Place Dental Restorations
We suggest placing dental crowns when your tooth is injured too far beyond the repair of a simple filling. This treatment also caps off the end of a root canal procedure to prevent your tooth from reinfection after cleaning out the inner pulp chamber. If an accident cracks or chips one of your teeth, failing to restore the enamel outer seal could also lead to dangerous infections. By taking careful measurements of your smile and surrounding teeth, we help return your proper alignment and even the distribution of the force of your bite.
The Ease Of A Same-Day Restoration
While other practices require multiple visits to design and place your new crown, we can perform the entire procedure in a single visit to our office. We begin treatment by numbing the affected area with a local anesthetic and altering the tooth to receive your restoration. We then take images from multiple angles to create a digital impression for the creation of your new tooth. Taking this impression, we use our onsite milling machine to fabricate your crown from solid porcelain as you wait. We then color the material to match your smile’s shade. After inspecting the cap to see that it fits comfortably with the rest of your teeth, we permanently attach it using a strong bonding agent.
To take care of your new tooth, continue performing your daily oral hygiene routine. By brushing and flossing, you clean bacterial deposits from around the gum line to prevent decay from accessing the natural tooth below your cap.
