Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are used to cover a decayed, broken, or discolored tooth, or can be used with dental implants to place a new, natural looking tooth where one or more may be missing. Made of high-strength ceramic or porcelain, crowns are resilient, long-lasting, and can protect teeth from stains, cavities, decay, gum disease, or breakage. Missing teeth provide a high risk for existing teeth to shift and for gum disease and related health conditions to occur. When teeth shift, everything from a patient’s bite to how pressure is distributed on remaining teeth can be affected, making it hard to perform even the most basic activities like chewing and biting, and causing potential risks of jaw strain, chronic pain, or damage to remaining teeth. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, or require a crown to restore an existing tooth, Drs. Underwood, Dais, and Faulconer at Crossroads Family Dentistry can help.
The CEREC Process
When you come in for your appointment, one of our expertly trained and skilled Oklahoma City dentists will examine your current dental health condition and speak with you about what treatments are available for your specific needs. If you decide that CEREC crown treatment is right for you, then the process can start that day!
After guiding you through what to expect with the CEREC process, your dentist will begin by forming a digital impression of your teeth. Next, highly advanced 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software will form a 3D virtual mold of your teeth and design a highly precise crown that is personalized and custom made, to suit your natural smile and bite. As the patient, you can view this impression even before a crown is made, and your dentist can make adjustments if desired. Your ideal dental crown will be designed to be highly functional, comfortable, and personalized to your existing smile, so that your new crown may look, feel, and behave as any other natural, healthy tooth.
Once the design has been approved, there is no waiting on a lab to receive your new crown. Our in-house restorative process will mill the ideal crown out of a block of ceramic or porcelain in the shade of your natural teeth in the matter of only minutes. Then, your Oklahoma City dentist will look over the new piece, polish it, and make any necessary adjustments. The new tooth is then comfortably placed and bonded to last. With proper care and regular dental hygiene, your same-day dental crown can behave like any other strong, healthy tooth for years to come.
