If you need treatment for a cavity that requires more support than a filling can give, or if you need to do something about an injured tooth, our Irving, TX dentist can respond with a custom dental crown. In doing so, we can see to it that you have functional support that lets you continue to bite and chew like normal. We can also take care to provide coverage with a restoration that actually imitates healthy enamel and lets you preserve your smile. These are important benefits, but they are not the only ways in which we can ensure patients have positive experiences with restorative care. Thanks to the CEREC technology in our office, we can offer treatment with crowns that are ready in just one visit, making the time you need to dedicate to care shorter than it would be at another location.

Why Do Some Dental Problems Require Crowns?

There are times when dental decay or physical harm lead to significant issues for teeth. In these situations, it is important that the structure have the right support. This is important for the health of the tooth as well as the maintenance of your natural bite. Our practice can offer that level of protection with a custom crown that completely surrounds your tooth structure. With CEREC technology that is in our office, we can have the right results ready for you to enjoy in less time that another practice can require, as we can do everything involved in the design, construction, and placement of your restoration on-site!

Using CEREC-Made Restorations To Care For Teeth

With CEREC technology, we can restore your vulnerable tooth without the need to have a third party lab produce your crown. Before the crown is made, we will carefully evaluate the tooth using digital imaging technology. Measurements yielded from this review are used to produce a digital design for a restoration that will fit securely without affecting neighboring teeth. At this point, we can produce a crown based on that design with an in-office milling machine. The material we use to construct these crowns is a ceramic that can closely match the appearance of enamel. Because of this, we can protect your tooth without altering the way you look!
