Being able to protect a vulnerable tooth is important. Using a dental crown to cover up a problem tooth can allow you to bite and chew comfortably and naturally, and keep you safe from future problems with that tooth. When your dentist provides you with a ceramic crown, it becomes possible to offer restorative dental care that keeps your appearance in good standing. Ceramic crowns can be crafted to match the look of your surrounding teeth, so it does not stand out in your smile. CEREC technology allows your dentist to provide your crown in one visit, making it more cosmetically pleasing, and convenient.
Thanks To CEREC, Your Ceramic Crown Can Be Ready In One Visit
With CEREC technology, everything needed to design, craft, and place your crown is all contained in your dentist’s office. Your appointment will begin with your dentist taking the necessary measurements, and performing necessary preparatory work on your tooth. The measurements will allow them to design your crown, and a milling machine in the office will produce it in time for it to be placed during that same visit.
Better Preventive Care Reduces Your Risk For Needing Future Dental Crowns
Your crown may be durable, and up to the task of providing you with long-term care for a problem tooth, but prevention will always be preferable to restorative work. If you want to limit your risk for problems, schedule regular dental exams and cleanings. With these recurring appointments, you can take better care to avoid tooth decay. If you do have a problem, you are more likely to have it found and treated sooner, meaning you may need a filling, but not a crown, to address the issue.
