If you have a problem with your oral health, it will be important to start treatment as soon as possible. When you put off treatment for issues with dental decay, cavities can keep growing, which can do serious damage to your tooth structure in time. Fortunately, your Redmond, OR dentist’s office can help. We can provide treatment in less time than you expect, even when you need to do something about a problem that is too serious for a dental filling. With a custom dental crown, we can protect your tooth from advanced decay or physical harm. We actually have the technology to have a lifelike crown ready for you in one appointment, leading to real results in a surprisingly short time!
Why Do I Need A Crown And Not A Filling?
Any dental problem that is serious enough for restorative work will call for the placement of a permanent restoration to support the tooth that undergoes treatment. A dental filling is the more conservative treatment option, one that leaves surrounding enamel untouched. However, if you have a more severe problem with your oral health, it can be necessary for you to receive a crown. A custom dental crown will cover your tooth above the gum line without bothering neighboring teeth or looking out of place. While many practices require two appointments when placing a crown, we can have yours ready in the span of one visit!
Creating And Placing Your Same-Day Crown
A same-day crown made at our office can match the color, shape, and size of the tooth being restored. This is how we are able to restore it without changing your smile. To make sure your restoration is the right shape and size, we will take detailed digital measures of it, which are then used to create a personalized design. After this is done, we will produce your crown with an in-office milling machine. The restorations that we make are designed with a ceramic material that can successfully imitate your enamel.
Avoiding Trouble With Your Smile In The Future
While you may be happy to learn that you can receive a dental crown in just one visit, you should focus on making sure you have no more need for restorative dental work. Regular dental exams can help you avoid oral health issues, particularly those issues that call for more than dental fillings. These appointments, when followed by good habits at home, make it easier to preserve a healthy and attractive smile!
