When dental decay or an injury puts your tooth in a vulnerable state, permanent protection will be needed. The good news is that even if you need a dental crown to provide the proper support, our Katy, TX dentist’s office is prepared to help in the span of just one appointment. Our practice can provide different types of crowns, including those made with CEREC technology that can be ready in just one appointment! This is a convenient option, one that prevents you from being in a situation where you have to wait for your permanent restoration to be ready.
Benefits To Having Access To CEREC Crowns
With CEREC technology, we can both produce crowns in less time and have them made to match your healthy enamel. What this means is that you have lifelike results and quality protection in a short time. It can be a relief to know that care is so readily available, and you can be glad to know that your dental work will not cause an observable change to your smile.
Creating And Placing Your Restoration
With dental crowns that are made by third party labs, the process of restoring your tooth takes at least two visits. We gather the measurements that are needed to produce a crown at your initial visit, and we also provide preparatory work to ensure your restoration will fit when you receive it. After your restoration is prepared, you can return to our practice to have it set in place permanently. Through the use of CEREC technology, we are able to take digital measurements and use them to create a design of your crown before having it made in our in-office milling machine. Once we confirm it is the right shape and size, it can be permanently set in place to give you long-term protection!
Other Types Of Restorations We Can Place
When a problem with your oral health is caught in time, more of your enamel can be preserved. This can make treatment with a dental filling possible, something that will allow you to save more of your enamel and limit the amount of work that you ultimately need. We should note that there are more options available to you than CEREC crowns. Other options include lifelike appliances made from zirconia or porcelain as well as more durable metal restorations.
