Injuries to your tooth can be stressful. You may worry if it will be reparable, how much time you will need to take off of work or school or have concerns about how it will heal. Contemporary Dental in Bellaire, TX, may help ease your anxiety with the help of same-day crowns. This restoration can help repair the harm in less time so that you can get back to your plans for the day.

When This Restoration Is Necessary

Dental crowns can be used to address a variety of concerns. Broken, chipped, or worn-down pearly whites may be repaired with this restoration. This type of injury may have occurred when playing sports, biting into something too hard, or excessively grinding your teeth. Bruxism may cause patients to grind their teeth or clench their jaws, which can wear down their enamel overtime. As a result, the area feel more sensitive. The tooth-shaped cap is placed over your dental structure to protect it from further injury and improve its function. Crowns may also be used for further protection after having a root canal done. The damaged pulp will be removed during this procedure, which can leave your tooth in a weaker state. To protect it and improve your ability to chew, a cap may be placed over the area.

CEREC Technology Expedites The Process

Traditionally, it could take several weeks to receive your restoration. You would come in for an appointment and have impressions taken of the area. A temporary cap would be placed in the meantime to protect the structure. Then, the permanent one would be created and secured when it is ready. Now this can be done in less time, meaning you can get back to work, school, or other plans you may have for the day. An impression will be taken of the area and sent straight to our on-site technology. This same-day restorations will be made of the same material as a traditional crown, last many years, and appear lifelike.

Maintaining Your Restored Tooth

As mentioned earlier, CEREC crowns can be made of porcelain, zirconia, or porcelain fused to metal depending on your needs. These materials are highly durable and can last for many years as long as they are properly maintained. Porcelain and zirconia are often used if the crown will be on a visible tooth, and PFM may be used for areas like your back molars. After receiving your crown, the area may be slightly sensitive. This is normal and should go away within a few days. You will follow your regular oral hygiene routine after receiving this restoration.
