Crowns and Caps CEREC Crowns
Dental crowns are an important part of our Aspire Family Dentistry to keep your teeth looking and feeling good for life. A dental crown can restore a damaged or broken tooth for years to come.
Caps CEREC crowns, a specific type of coverage that covers the tooth entirely, giving the tooth the same look as the rest of your smile. Crowns are also important when it comes to protecting and strengthening teeth, especially around fillings and different types of restorative dental infrastructure.
When Are Dental Crowns Used?
Here are a few common reasons that we will use a dental crown:
A tooth has been damaged, broken, or severely worn
Support for adjacent teeth with fillings
To secure a dental bridge
Shielding teeth that are severely discolored and/or misshapen
To cover a dental implant
Crowns & Caps CEREC Crowns: How It Works
Properly installing a crown over a damaged tooth is important to the lifespan of the crown, along with the functional and cosmetic benefits it provides.
Dental crowns usually take at least two visits, first to examine and diagnose the situation, and to measure the overall dental health of the surrounding bone and the root of the tooth.
Once those facts are ascertained, a treatment plan is put into place, beginning with the dentist numbing the tooth and guns, then shaping the tooth to be a strong base for dental crowns.
Depending on your specific situation, the dentist will rebuild areas of the tooth where necessary to create a suitable base for the crown. Next, impressions are made of the tooth that will be covered by the crown, and the tooth it will meet when chewing.
Be On Your Way
Most patients receive a temporary dental crown while the permanent replacement is being made. Two to three weeks later, on your second visit, we’ll remove the temporary crown and affix the permanent dental crown into place.
Sounds great, right? Just reach out to us to get the process started and it’ll be done in no time. At that point, all you have to do is practice good dental hygiene and you’re good to go!
