A problem tooth is not something you want to leave without treatment. If your tooth is affected by advanced decay, or physical trauma, the persistent discomfort can be taxing, and you can be eager to have results as soon as possible. When your Shrewsbury, MA dentist restores your tooth, they can use E4D technology to craft a dental crown for you during your initial visit. The obvious benefit is that you have permanent dental support sooner. You also go without a temporary crown, which can be uncomfortable, and may not do enough to really protect your tooth. You also benefit because the crown produced will be made from an attractive dental ceramic, which can blend in with your smile.
What Kind Of Problems Require A Dental Crown?
In some instances, a cavity will need to be treated with a dental crown. The decision to use this restoration, or a dental filling, is based on the amount of support the tooth will require. Fillings offer a conservative treatment approach that supplies you natural-looking support in the area of your tooth where the cavity was removed. When a cavity does too much damage, a crown will be needed for proper support. Dental injuries can also call for dental crowns, as chips and cracks will not heal naturally. A crown offers protection from infection, and support to make comfortable biting and chewing possible again.
Do You Have Older Restorations That Need To Be Replaced?
As time passes, an older restoration may start to offer less than ideal support. The amount of time it takes for a filling or crown to wear down depends on factors like the material used, and your dental habits. Your dentist can look at your existing restorations during a standard dental exam, and identify if a replacement might be needed. Modern fillings and crowns can offer real esthetic advantages over an older restoration.
