If you have a chipped or cracked tooth, or if you’ve developed advanced cases of decay, then a restoration may be necessary to fix your smile. Fortunately, using advanced dentistry we can create and place a natural looking crown in just one visit!
When Do You Need A Dental Crown?
We may suggest one for cases of tooth decay too severe for a simple dental filling. In addition, they help fix chipped, cracked, or severely broken teeth. We’ve used them to reshape malformed teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and even aid in tooth replacement by anchoring dental bridges or restoring single tooth dental implants. As you can see, they offer a wide array of cosmetic and restorative benefits.
The E4D system employs advanced CAD/CAM technology to create a dental crown. We first need to prepare the tooth, which means removing tooth structure and then taking detailed digital impressions. The digital impression will be used to create a 3D computer model, which will be uploaded into the E4D machine. The machine mills a custom crown from a solid block of ceramic, a lifelike material that mimics the translucent look of tooth enamel and contains stain-resistant properties. The restoration will also be able to endure serious bite forces and pressures, while blending seamlessly with your smile. The entire procedure, from preparation to replacement, only takes one visit to complete.
Keeping Your Smile Healthy
With preventive care, you can help ensure your new restoration remains strong and attractive, while also safeguarding your natural teeth. We suggest brushing your teeth twice a day and always flossing before going to bed at night. We also suggest seeing us every few months to have your smile examined and your teeth thoroughly cleaned. Routine care means a healthy smile and a long-lasting dental restoration. If you have any questions or concerns, if you think your smile benefits from a single visit restoration, then contact our team today.
