Addressing A Cavity With A CEREC Dental Crown

Restorative dental work is only effective when it ensures that your tooth has the support it needs to stay healthy, and stay functional, after your treatment. In cases where your tooth is affected by a larger cavity, particularly one that has caused internal problems, significant support can be needed. A dental crown can cover your tooth completely, and help you feel comfortable using it to bite and chew. This is important, as dental fillings are not always strong enough to help a tooth recover after decay. Because your dentist has access to CEREC technology, your smile can be restored in less time when you need a crown.

CEREC Technology Provides You With Your Crown In Less Time

CEREC technology is used to produce custom-made ceramic dental crowns in the course of a single appointment. Your tooth will be measured, and prepared (so that the crown fits comfortably) at the start of your visit. This information will be used to make a custom crown, which can then be put in place. Because this is meant to be your permanent restoration, you can count on it to hold up against biting and chewing pressures, so your bite function is not compromised. In addition to producing complete crowns, CEREC technology also allows your dentist to produce inlays and onlays, which offer partial coverage.

Restorative Care Can Offer Lasting Support Without Affecting How You Look

The purpose of restorative work is to make sure your tooth is fully protected and supported. That being said, you can be relieved to learn that your appearance is also taken into consideration. CEREC crowns are made from ceramic, and can look like a natural tooth. This means it will blend in, and leave your smile without disruption.
