Your Rapid City, SD dentist can provide you with restorative dental care that addresses the concerns you have over your tooth, and your appearance. In situations where a cavity calls for more than just a dental filling, or as a response to dental damage, a patient can require a dental crown. Because our practice has CEREC technology in the office, you can look forward to having your lifelike crown ready for your tooth after just one appointment. This means that you avoid a waiting period where a third party lab has to construct your restoration, and you can forego any dependence on a temporary crown that may provide insufficient support.
Creating Your CEREC Crown, And Restoring Your Vulnerable Tooth
After your tooth suffers the kind of problem that calls for restorative care, you will need permanent support. In cases where a crown is required, your tooth will be permanently covered by an attractive restoration that keeps you safe from infections and further damage, while also taking on a functional role in biting and chewing. Your dentist has the necessary technology on hand to design a custom ceramic crown for you, and have it produced and placed during your appointment.
What Can I Do To Avoid Future Problems That Might Make Dental Crowns Necessary
You can improve your defense against cavities by improving your daily oral health habits, and by attending regular dental exams. Taking these steps can make it less likely that you will have a cavity advanced enough to demand a crown. While it can be hard to anticipate a dental injury, there are habits you can avoid if you want to lower your risk. One problem that can lead to wear and tear on teeth is bruxism, or a habit of grinding your teeth. If you tend to wake up with sore, sensitive teeth, you may want to address the matter with your dentist.
