Using A Crown To Restore A Chipped Tooth

When you arrange treatment for a chipped tooth, your dentist will recommend treatment based on its condition. Scheduling the right kind of treatment is important, as you may need more than just cosmetic coverage to make sure you are properly cared for. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we are prepared to offer cosmetic work, but we can also discuss restorative treatment if we are concerned about the condition of your tooth. The good news is that we can provide a custom dental crown that is strong and lifelike in appearance, and it can be ready for you in just a single appointment.

Why You Should Talk With A Dentist About Your Chipped Tooth

You may see your chipped tooth as “just” a problem for your smile, but dental damage can impact more than just your appearance. Even if it does not seem serious at first, that chip can weaken your tooth structure and make you more vulnerable to harm. It is also possible for an injury to cause internal harm, something that puts your oral health in jeopardy. During an evaluation, we can assess what kind of support you should have for your injured tooth. If you need a crown, we can use CEREC technology to have it ready for you in just one appointment. We can also look into more a more conservative cosmetic procedure.

We Can Have Your Lifelike Crown Ready In Just One Visit

Through the use of CEREC technology, we can design and place a dental crown that is custom-made for your tooth in just one appointment! This technology lets us take care of every aspect of your smile care when performing restorative work. We can digitally measure your tooth, create a computer design for your restoration, then produce it in an in-office milling machine so that we can place it. Because our crowns are made from a lifelike ceramic material, this provides cosmetic benefits as well as protection for your tooth structure.

Other Options For Treating A Chipped Tooth

What else can you do if you are bothered by a chipped tooth? If you are approved, we can move forward with a more conservative procedure involving the placement of porcelain veneers. Through the use of veneers, we are able to make changes to the shape, size, and color of teeth while minimizing overall changes to its structure. Veneers only cover the front of a tooth, which means the surrounding enamel remains unchanged.
