If you need dental work that requires a crown, what can you really expect from treatment? How long will it take to have a restoration in place, and what will it do to your appearance? At our Irving, TX dentist’s office, we can provide welcome results from restorative dental work. When your tooth needs the support of a crown, we can use CEREC technology to place one that is ready in just one appointment! That means it takes less time for you to have lasting protection. This technology offers more than just convenience, as we can place a restoration that effectively mimics your healthy enamel.

Why Do Some Restorative Treatments Call For Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns provide important protection when your tooth experiences harm from a cavity or physical injury. If the damage is too severe for a filling or even a partial crown to address, a full crown can surround the tooth and provide meaningful protection. At many practices, this can mean that restorative work will take at least two appointments. However, this wait time can be avoided at our practice, as we can provide care on short notice thanks to CEREC technology! With this technology, we are capable of protecting teeth with lifelike restorations that are ready in as little as one visit.

Using CEREC Technology To Produce Your Crown

With CEREC technology, dental restorations can be custom-made and placed in the course of just one visit. The first step in treating your vulnerable tooth will call for a close measure of its shape and size. We can digitally gather this information and use it to create a model of the restoration that will protect you. Once it is ready, we can produce it with an in-office milling machine and put it in place. At this point, you can be relieved to see that your smile is preserved, and you can be happy to know that you will be able to bite and chew without difficulty.

More Options For Restorative Treatment

There are different options available when we need to treat teeth that are in need of care. Dental fillings and partial crowns provide protection for teeth that have been damaged by decay but do not require the support of full crowns. These restorations can still match your enamel and preserve your smile, but they can do so with less preparatory work, which means more of your natural tooth structure is preserved.
