Do you experience chronic toothaches or uncomfortable tooth sensitivity? If so, you may be exhibiting the symptoms of tooth decay. When a tooth becomes decayed or damaged, treatment is necessary to prevent the need for dental extraction. At The Silverstrom Gtoup, we offer dental crowns to restore compromised teeth. In fact, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, can now design, create, and even place a new crown in just one visit. In today’s blog, your Livingston dentists discuss the advantages of CEREC crowns.
What is a Crown?
A crown acts a cap that fits completely over the visible portion of a tooth. First, the tooth is prepared and an impression is taken. Based on the impression, a custom-made crown is created. Crowns protect the remaining tooth structure while preventing further decay or infection, returning the tooth to full function and appearance.
Typically, receiving a crown takes two visits. In the two-week interim between visits, patients often must wear a temporary crown. Fortunately, with CEREC technology, your Livingston NJ cosmetic dentists can create and place a crown in a single visit. A 3D computer image of your tooth is created, which the CEREC machine uses to design and craft a custom-made crown. Once complete, your Livingston dentists will check the fit and place the crown using a powerful bonding agent. All CEREC crowns are made from special dental ceramic. Furthermore, the crowns can be shaded to ensure they blend seamlessly with your smile, providing years of quality restoration.
