How We Can Restore Your Tooth In One Day


Omaha, NE, dentist offers cerec crowns

Harming one of your pearly whites can put an abrupt stop to your daily plans. When this happens to you, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible to prevent the injury from worsening. Your Pacific Hills Dental team in Omaha, NE, is equipped to manage these emergency situations. In many cases, an injured tooth may be able to be restored in the same day with the help of CEREC technology.

What To Do If You Harm A Tooth

Your teeth are pretty strong, but that does not mean that they are unbreakable. Accidents such as blows to the face during sports, biting into something too hard, or excessive wear and tear can lead to chips and fractures on your pearly whites. This can be alarming, so it is important to be prepared in case this happens. It is important to stay calm and contact your dentist as soon as possible to have the area looked at. While you wait, you may be able to apply gauze or a compress to the area to minimize the swelling. If you are able to, try to keep the pieces of your broken tooth in a clean container.

How A CEREC Crown Can Help

You should not wait to have this injury looked at during your next checkup. It is important to have a broken tooth looked at promptly to avoid the injury from worsening or becoming infected. At your appointment, the dentist will assess the harm and decide what the best way of repairing it may be. In many cases, a dental crown can be used to fix this problem. Traditionally, receiving a crown could take several weeks from start to finish. However, our office has CEREC technology which can be used to create your restorative piece in the same day. After examining the area, an impression can be made. This will be sent to the machine to craft your protective cap. It will look natural and last just as long as a traditionally made one would.

Other Uses For Dental Crowns

This restoration can be used to address more than just a broken tooth. If your pearly whites have become severely worn down due to bruxism, crowns can help restore them as well. You will first need to get treatment for your teeth-grinding habit. We can also pair these caps with dental implants to replace a missing tooth. This is a great prosthetic option because it can mimic both the root and visible part of the structure.
