Our teeth may be strong, but they are vulnerable to both physical damage and decay. When problems arise, they need strong support to preserve your bite function and health. At our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dentist’s office, we can provide that protection in less time than you might expect. Technology in our office enables us to produce same-day dental crowns that can provide lasting support. In addition to supporting your tooth so that you can still bite and chew without problems, these restorations can provide cosmetic benefits. Remember that we are also here to help you prevent the kinds of issues that make restorative dental work necessary—by keeping up with your regular dental exams, you are less likely to need dental work!
Why Some Dental Procedures Call For The Placement Of Crowns
Restorative dental work addresses permanent harm to your tooth structure. While there are times when we can provide treatment with more conservative dental fillings, there are times when cavities require more support. In these situations, and in situations where you go through physical injuries, we can help by providing custom dental crowns. What makes crowns different from fillings is that they provide full coverage of your tooth above the gum line, rather than directly covering the site of your decay. Once in position, this restoration will offer welcome bite support in addition to keeping a tooth safe from harm.
Receiving A Same-Day Dental Crown
Through CEREC technology, we can do the work of designing, crafting, and placing a crown in just one appointment! This saves you time when compared to your treatment options at other offices, which can require at least two visits to a practice. We can gather digital images that we will use to create model designs of your restoration. From there, we can produce a crown with our in-office milling machine. The restorations we make are made with a ceramic substance that can closely match the look, color, and texture of your healthy enamel.
Preventive Services And Your Smile Health
You can reduce your risk for problems that require advanced restorative treatment when you keep up with regular preventive services. Your routine dental exams and cleanings provide helpful updates when something is wrong, which can lead to care before there are complications. A cavity treatment that occurs after your regular visit can end with the placement of a filling, a discreet and conservative restoration that leaves your surrounding tooth structure unchanged.
