Finding The Right Way To Treat A Broken Tooth

One thing that absolutely will not help you fix a broken tooth is choosing to ignore the problem. A broken tooth can face a risk of becoming infected, and it can make biting and chewing more difficult. When you seek restorative care from your dentist, they can provide lasting support with a dental crown. Our office can actually provide you with that dental crown in a single visit, thanks to CEREC technology. With CEREC technology, it becomes possible to design and produce your restoration in the office. Made from ceramic, your crown will provide coverage that makes biting and chewing easier, while also preserving your appearance.

Providing Functional And Cosmetic Improvement Through The Placement Of A Dental Crown

A ceramic dental crown will benefit you by protecting a vulnerable tooth, and keeping your smile intact. The appearance of your crown will be life-like enough to blend in with your neighboring teeth. This will prevent its presence from creating a distraction that hurts your overall smile. While the cosmetic value of your crown is certainly important, it is not the only issue that matters. Your crown should be durable enough so that you can comfortably rely on it when you bite and chew. If you have to modify your bite because of dental damage, the compromised motion can put strain on your jaw, and lead to discomfort.

When Dental Damage Leads To Tooth Loss

If your dental damage is so severe that your tooth cannot be saved, your dentist will still be able to rescue your smile. A dental implant-supported restoration makes it possible to keep a restoration permanently in place. The implant operates like a prosthetic tooth root, keeping your replacement tooth secure enough to be relied on for biting and chewing tasks. This means you can regain your attractive smile, and still feel confident in your dental functions.
