A dental injury can put you in urgent need of care from your dentist. Because our teeth will not heal from damage on their own, restorative dental care is needed in the event of harm. Many people who have a chipped or cracked tooth will receive support in the form of a dental crown. Crowns can offer enough support to let you bite and chew like normal, while also keeping a vulnerable tooth protected against infection. CEREC technology makes it possible for your dentist to equip your injured tooth with a crown after just one appointment.
Receive Support For An Injured Tooth In Less Time Thanks To CEREC Technology
CEREC technology makes it possible to fit every step in the crown creation and placement process into a single appointment. First, your dentist will take measurements of the tooth in question, and use the information gathered to design a custom crown. An on-site milling machine will provide your restoration, which will then be placed on the tooth.
How Will I Look After My Crown Is Placed?
CEREC crowns are constructed with ceramic. This material is strong enough to hold up to biting and chewing demands, so you will not have functional issues to contend with. That being said, ceramic is often preferred by patients because it allows for the creation of life-like restorations. You can have a crown placed on a tooth that is prominent in your smile, and not worry about how your appearance might be impacted.
Fully Responding To A Dental Injury
If you need treatment for a dental injury, your treatment may involve more than just the placement of a crown. If your tooth’s interior is exposed by damage, your dentist may need to perform a root canal, to protect you against any possible infection that might have taken place as a result.
