A problem with the health of a tooth can be a serious imposition on your well-being, especially if that tooth’s ability to bite and chew has been impacted. You may find yourself in pain, or dealing with a high degree of sensitivity, when you suffer an advanced cavity. You can also struggle with oral health problems after suffering physical damage that leaves you with a chipped or cracked tooth. Fortunately, your dentist is able to take care of the problem promptly, thanks to CEREC technology. With CEREC, it becomes possible to produce a permanent, life-like dental crown over the course of a single appointment! That means you will not be left waiting for a long-term solution to your oral health problem.
How Is My Dentist Able To Make A Custom Dental Crown In A Single Appointment?
For a dental crown to truly benefit you, it needs to be strong enough to perform necessary biting and chewing tasks for many years. It also needs to be an exact fit within your smile, so that it is not intrusive, or unstable. CEREC technology allows your dentist to create your restoration at their office because it allows them to take measurements for the crown, and then produce it in a milling machine on site. Because the restorations provided by this technology are made with life-like ceramic, you will not have to worry about any consequences for your appearance.
How You Can Avoid Future Problems That Make A Restoration Necessary
If you want to limit your risk for future dental problems, make sure you practice smart daily oral care habits, and make sure you are keeping up with your routine dental exams. A combination of these actions will lower your cavity risk significantly. Because your dentist checks for any signs of tooth decay at every checkup, regular visits can lead to a cavity treatment taking place before decay causes enough damage to make a crown needed.
