While your teeth are remarkably strong, they are still vulnerable to damage. A tooth can break during a traumatic injury or weaken due to infection or decay. In such cases, a dental crown may be needed to save and restore your natural tooth.
A crown can be considered a “dental cap” for a weak or damaged tooth. It is made with strong materials that look and feel just like a natural tooth. Your crown will cover all visible surfaces of the affected tooth and be cemented into place for secure function. A crown is often used after root canal therapy, to help the tooth regain full strength and protect it from future damage.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
When a tooth suffers a crack, chip or fracture, the outer enamel of your tooth is compromised. This is the protective layer that keeps bacteria and acid from invading the vital tooth center. While minor damage can be repaired with dental bonding or a filling, a large tooth fracture often warrants a dental crown. As a patient of Exceptional Smiles at Landerbrook, you have access to the innovative technology of same day crowns.
Same Day Crowns
When it comes to dental crowns, we offer the latest and most advanced solutions in modern dentistry. In a single office visit, we can deliver long-lasting, natural-looking and comfortable dental crowns. One visit dental crowns are made possible with our advanced CEREC system, a top ranked technology that custom fabricates your dental restoration right here in our office.
We begin by taking a painless optical impression of your tooth using the CAD/CAM technology. Next, the computer design software creates a highly precise three-dimensional image of your new dental crown. The CEREC machine then carries out the final manufacturing process by conveniently milling the crown right away.
Before you leave our office, we will carefully bond the same day crown to your tooth so that you have a permanent restoration to walk away with. There’s no need for messy impressions, temporary crowns or multiple trips to the dentist using our advanced CEREC system.
If you see visible damage to your tooth or experience symptoms such as sensitivity or pain when biting down, please contact our Mayfield Heights office. When it comes to placing dental crowns, Exceptional Smiles proudly offers unmatched convenience and quality.
