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 look just like a real tooth. They help preserve the tooth, and protect it from stains, cavities, decay, gum disease, or breakage. Missing teeth provide a high risk for the adjacent teeth to shift, exposing them to gum disease and other related health conditions. 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. If you have any missing teeth, or require a crown to restore an existing tooth, Drs. Underwood, Dais, and Faulconer at Crossroads Family Dentistry are ready to help.
The CEREC Process
When you come in for your appointment, one of our expertly trained Oklahoma City dentists will examine your current dental health condition and suggest available treatments based on your specific needs. If you are in need of a crown, the CEREC treatment process can start that same 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. That mold will design a highly precise crown that is customized 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. The new crown will look, feel, and behave like 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 to match your natural tooth color. The process will be completed in a matter of minutes and will give us time to examine the new piece, polish it, and make any necessary adjustments. The restoration is then comfortably placed and bonded permanently to the tooth. With proper care and regular dental hygiene, your same-day dental crown can behave like any other strong, healthy tooth for years to come.
