In the event that you have a cavity too large to be treated with a filling or a physical injury that affects your smile, treatment with a dental crown can become necessary. At our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA area dental practice, we are prepared to care for patients who experience these issues. What can surprise you is how we are actually able to move forward with care that provides a durable, lifelike, custom-made crown in just a single appointment! We are able to do this because we use E4D technology to make these restorations in-house. We can do so while still making sure that your measurements are used and your treatment preserves the way you look.
Why Cavities Are Custom-Made For Patients
In order to provide the right support, and to ensure that it will remain in place over time, your dentist will see to it that the crown you receive is customized to fit securely over your tooth. A custom fit can ensure this, and it can also do so while not creating problems for neighboring teeth. A careful measurement of the tooth being treated will occur before the restoration is created. This can ensure that your crown is the ideal fit even as you receive one made without the need for a second appointment!
Receiving Your Same-Day Dental Crown
Same-day crowns are made at our practice with E4D technology. We are able to complete all of the steps involved in creating these restorations. Care will begin with the measurement of your tooth, which leads to the digital design of your restoration. From that proposed design, we can use in-office technology to produce the crown for you. From there, we can put it in place to make sure that your tooth will remain protected.
Taking Care Of Your Smile And Avoiding Future Oral Health Threats
As reassuring as it can be to have access to same-day crowns, make sure that you continue to prioritize preventive care. After all, you still experience permanent changes to your tooth structure in the process of placing a restoration, even if it is a more convenient or conservative one. Keeping up With general dental checkups and sticking to a good oral hygiene routine can help you avoid future cavities, and so can attending your regular dental exams on a consistent basis.
