A problem with one tooth can be enough to undermine your confidence in your smile. Whether that tooth is the wrong shape, has visible damage, or does not match the color of its neighbors, the issue can make your smile appear awkward and unbalanced, and you can worry that your flaws are drawing unwanted attention. Fortunately, there are dental services that can make positive changes to your smile. One treatment that can help is the placement of a dental crown. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office can offer a same-day crown that actually imitates the appearance of a healthy tooth. In addition to improving the way you look, a crown can give you a better bite function.
Damaged Or Misshapen Teeth Create Problems For Smiles
If a tooth is injured, or if it has flaws that formed naturally, you can face more than just esthetic concerns. You may have a difficult time biting and chewing in a way that feels natural because your tooth does not offer enough support, or because it is sore or sensitive. If this is the case, you can fall into a habit of overusing other teeth, which can be worn down more quickly. You can also struggle with jaw pain or sensitivity over time if you rely on an unnatural bite movement.
How One-Visit Crowns Are Made And Placed
Because we are able to place dental crowns in just one visit, we can offer exciting smile improvements in a surprisingly short time. After you arrive for treatment, your tooth will be digitally measured, and those measurements will be used to design a custom restoration. Once the restoration is ready to be produced, we will have it made in our in-office milling machine. At this point, the tooth can be restored!
We May Be Able To Restore Your Tooth’s Appearance With A Custom Veneer
It may not be necessary to restore your problem tooth with a dental crown. If we move forward with treatment that relies on a porcelain veneer, we can limit the work done on your tooth structure while caring for your smile. Veneers only cover the fronts of teeth, leaving most of its structure unchanged. The porcelain material used in the production of veneers will be durable enough to provide lasting improvements, even as you rely on the restored tooth to bite and chew.
