Dental crowns support teeth that need protection due to injury or decay. In some cases, they are also affixed to dental implants to address tooth loss. The restoration provides total coverage above the gumline while preserving your smile and protecting neighboring teeth.
Restorative services respond to problems with the health and integrity of teeth. When physical harm or decay impact your well-being, we can remove unhealthy tissues and perform preparatory work so that your dentist can place a permanent, lifelike crown.
Before committing to this solution, we can evaluate you and look for a more conservative care option. For cavities, dental fillings often prove effective at covering the affected portion of your enamel while leaving the remaining structure unchanged. For some dental injuries, we can review the benefits of cosmetic dentistry for correcting these flaws while preserving enamel.
We can cut down on your treatment time when you need a dental crown thanks to E4D technology. Everything we need is in our office to take digital 3D impressions of your tooth, create a design of the restoration, and produce it. The milling machine we use to make the crown with a porcelain substance that matches the appearance of healthy enamel. Not only does this save time, it removes the need for you to depend on a temporary crown that can feel insecure or uncomfortable.
The right approach to care with a dental crown can provide lasting protection while keeping treatment convenient. For more information on how we can have a restoration ready in just one visit, call Modern Dentistry Of Shrewsbury at 508-842-8838.
