When you have a tooth that needs to be repaired or restored, we can offer a custom crown. In addition, we can do this in only one visit with the CEREC system. At your Wheaton, IL, dental office, we can employ advanced digital imaging and an onsite milling machine to create and place dental crowns in only one visit.
When a Tooth Needs a Dental Crown
A dental crown, also known as a full restoration, is used to address cosmetic and restorative concerns, and even aid in prosthetic dentistry in some cases too. The crown will cover the entire visible portion of your tooth, so we can address minor and severe issues. We could use one to address cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. We can add length to worn down teeth and treat advanced cases of tooth decay. For an infected tooth, we can complete a root canal. If your misshapen teeth, we can offer a better appearance and improved bite balance too. If you have missing teeth, these can be used to secure a bridge in place or even complete a single tooth dental implant.
Taking a Same-Day Approach
In the past, receiving a crown meant taking a day or two of work, as two to three visits could be necessary. But our team uses CEREC technology, so we can design, create, and place one in a single visit. To get started, we will numb the tooth being treated so we can gently remove structure from the outside, making room for your restoration. Digital images and measurements are then taken and used to design and craft the crown. The information is then added to the onsite milling machine, which will use it to craft a crown from a solid block of ceramic. The material is very durable and can handle daily bite forces, but is also translucent like enamel, so we can color-match to blend with your smile.
Placing Your New Custom Restoration
When we complete the new crown, our team will then check the fit and make any necessary adjustments to ensure optimal fit and a balanced bite. We then attach the crown with a powerful bonding agent, so it can stay in place for years to come and provide a lifelike and durable repair for your tooth. The entire process takes only one appointment, so you leave with a strong and healthy smile. If you have any questions about our CEREC same-day crowns, then contact our team today.
