For the sake of your smile and your oral health, you can have a dental problem treated with a restoration that can both protect a vulnerable tooth and imitate it. What might surprise you is how our Omaha, NE dentist’s office is prepared to address an oral health problem with a durable, customized dental crown that matches your tooth in just one appointment! We rely on CEREC technology in order to take measurements and create a design of your crown before we produce it with an in-office milling machine. After this work is complete, we can help you remain safe against future threats when you come in for routine dental exams.
How Long Will It Take Your Dentist To Fully Restore Your Tooth?
Fully restoring a tooth to protect it and ensure it can still absorb bite pressure can sometimes call for a dental crown. While a dental filling can provide support while preserving more of your healthy tooth structure, a crown is able to provide greater stability and support. At many other practices, a third party dental lab is entrusted with the production of patients’ crowns. Because they rely on this arrangement, they have to bring people in for at least two appointments to complete restorative dental work. Our dental office is different. Thanks to the CEREC technology at our practice, we have everything that we need to design, produce, and place your dental crown in just a single appointment!
The Process Of Making And Placing A Same-Day Crown
Before your crown can be made, we need to know what measurements we should use to produce it. The design matters because it ensures that the restoration will stay secure and look natural, and it can keep problems from occurring with neighboring teeth. After capturing a digital measurements that we need, we can take digital measurements that will be used to produce your crown with our in-office milling machine. Upon confirmation that it is the shape and size needed to protect your tooth, we can put it in place and provide long-term protection!
Keeping Up With Your Oral Health During Future Dental Exams
At subsequent dental exams, we can take a close look at your crown to confirm that it is still secure and in good condition. We can also check out your full smile in order to look out for potential problems. If an issue is identified, we can take action and restore the health of a tooth while a filling is all that you need.
