When your tooth becomes worn down, damaged, or severely decayed, a dental crown is often the most comprehensive way to restore the tooth’s strength and integrity, as well as reestablish your bite’s function. For many patients, the crown is also essential to preventing further tooth damage and avoiding the need for more extensive restoration, or tooth extraction. To help improve your chances of saving your tooth, we offer custom-designed same-day crowns that we can create and place all during a single visit.
When You Might Need a Crown
While dental crowns can completely restore even severely damaged teeth, your dentist will only recommend placing one when necessary. For instance, if your tooth is just lightly chipped or cosmetically blemished, then you might benefit from a more conservative porcelain veneer that only restores the front of the tooth. However, if your tooth may need a crown in cases such as:
- A fracture extends deep into the tooth’s dentin (main body)
- A piece of the tooth has broken off
- A tooth receives root canal therapy
- A previous restoration fails
- A tooth is lost (a crown can be secured with an implant)
The Benefits of Same-Day Crowns
Because a dental crown is made to replace tooth and its vital functions, it must precisely match the tooth’s optimal size, shape, and dimensions. In addition to providing this level of precision every time, our innovative E4D technology allows us to craft high-quality, customized dental crowns during the same visit. The digital measurements of your tooth are sent to an on-site milling machine, which automatically crafts your restoration according to your tooth’s specifications. Then, your dentist can place your permanent crown so you can leave our office with your smile fully restored.
