Dental crowns are not always needed for cavity treatments, but they are required when decay does too much harm for a dental filling to act as effective protection. They are also relied on when patients experience damage in the form of chipped, cracked, or broken tooth enamel. Because they have a role to play in restorative dental work, people sometimes overlook the potential for a crown to improve their appearance. A misshapen or injured tooth can negatively impact your appearance as well as your oral health. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we use technology to produce same-day crowns that can be placed to provide functional as well as cosmetic improvements!
Are You Self-Conscious About A Damaged Or Misshapen Tooth?
If you have left an injured tooth untreated, or if you have not pursued work to change the appearance of a tooth that is naturally misshapen, you can feel uncomfortable with its overall impact on your appearance. All it takes is one flaw to fundamentally change your smile symmetry and hurt your comfort with the way you look. Fortunately, there are procedures involving tooth bonding and porcelain veneers that can effectively address these flaws. During a cosmetic consultation, we can determine if cosmetic treatment might be appropriate, or if you would be better served by having a custom dental crown cover your tooth.
Receiving A Crown That Restores Your Tooth And Improves Your Smile
A dental crown made from lifelike ceramic can actually imitate the look of a tooth that is being restored. With this material, it is possible to make a change to your tooth structure without making it obvious you have had any work done. Before your crown is placed, your tooth is carefully measured and prepared for the placement of a restoration. This is to ensure that you have room for your restoration, and so that it fits properly. Because the crown covers the tooth, the ceramic material used to make it will provide durability that lets you continue biting and chewing without issues.
We Have The Ability To Make And Place A Crown In Just One Day!
The technology we keep at our office allows us to digitally measure teeth, design custom crowns with those measurements, and produce a permanent restoration in just one day! Because we have the ability to do this, we can take care of your smile flaw in less time than you expect. This also affords us the ability to respond more quickly to problems with dental injuries that call for treatment.
