Restoring a tooth that has suffered significant damage – from an injury, or from a cavity – can call for a dental crown. A dental crown offers major coverage of your tooth above your gum line, and the kind of stability needed to protect your tooth when you bite and chew food. With the right material type, you can also have the kind of coverage that preserves the appearance of your smile. If you come in for care expecting your dentist to need time to make your custom-made crown, you should know that CEREC technology can enable them to produce your restoration in one visit.
Receiving A Crown Made With CEREC Technology
Your dentist has everything they need to measure, design, and produce your crown during a single appointment. Impressions of your teeth are taken with digital technology. Once those impressions are gathered, a machine located in the office can produce your crown. This can be used to design a full crown, an inlay, or an onlay.
Enjoying Cosmetic And Functional Benefits From A Crown
A crown made with porcelain or zirconia can be of cosmetic and restorative value. Each of these types of crowns can have their color tinted to match surrounding teeth, so they do not stand out. If you have a damaged or otherwise flawed tooth draws negative attention, either a porcelain or a zirconia crown can improve on your appearance. One special benefit to zirconia is that the material is able to reflect light in a fashion that is similar to your enamel.
