Taking The Right Steps To Fix A Broken Tooth

What will it take to provide proper care for a broken tooth? That answer will depend on the condition of your tooth after the injury. If damages are superficial, cosmetic dental care may be enough to put an end to the matter. However, a more sore serious incident can call for a more involved treatment. Properly addressing a broken tooth means protecting you from future infections, and ensuring you can still comfortably bite and chew with that tooth. Many patients will require a dental crown after suffering an injury. Thanks to the CEREC technology available at your dentist’s office, you can have that restoration ready in a single appointment.

A Broken Tooth Will Need Lasting Protection

We can count on a broken bone to mend, provided you have the appropriate treatment. However, a broken tooth will need lasting protection. When you have a restoration put in place, it is intended to be permanent. Fortunately, your dentist can supply you with a crown that looks like a natural tooth, to help you avoid cosmetic worries.

When you practice proper oral care, and avoid habits that are more likely to cause dental damage, you can look forward to a crown lasting for many years. If you have a crown that has started to become worn, your dentist can let you know during a routine dental appointment, and you can discuss a replacement.

Receiving A Crown In One Visit Thanks To CEREC Technology

CEREC technology streamlines the process of receiving a crown to the point that you can receive it after a single appointment. The first part of your procedure will involve taking an impression of your tooth. A digital impression can be taken, which will then be used to design the crown so that it fits perfectly. A milling machine in your dentist’s office will produce that crown, which will be permanently placed during that same visit.
