CEREC technology allows your dentist in Champaign, IL to create your dental crown in just one appointment. This approach means you are fitted for and receive your dental crown during a single office setting.
What Is a Dental Crown, and Why Do You Need One?
A dental crown is a tooth cap that fits over a treated tooth. It is shaped and colored to match adjacent teeth.
And there are several reasons you may need or want a dental crown.
If you have a damaged tooth or one treated with root canal therapy, a dental crown restores its function and stability. In this capacity, the dental crown often saves your tooth from further breakage or the need for a tooth extraction.
In cosmetic dentistry, your dentist can use a dental crown to cap a discolored, chipped, or flawed tooth to give you an aesthetically pleasing smile.
Dental crowns also work in tooth replacement, anchoring a dental bridge to healthy teeth or capping a dental implant post after a period of bone to root integration.
How We Create Same-Day Crowns at Anderson Dental
If you need a dental crown, your dentist takes digital impressions of the tooth. The results provide us with accurate measurements for your crown and eliminate the need for messy impression pastes.
We then send the results to our on-site milling machine, creating your dental crown while you wait.
Finally, your dentist makes all final adjustments to fit and color before cementing your new crown over your tooth.
With your restored tooth, you’re able to enjoy meals because of chewing ease and smile with confidence again.
