Dental crowns help to restore either the function or appearance of the teeth of patients. They can improve the teeth in countless ways. With the help of Dr. R. Scott Langdon, your Mooresville, NC, dentist, you can determine whether or not you are a candidate for crowns after a comprehensive dental examination.
Benefits of CEREC Crowns
Crowns have been successful at protecting the teeth in general. For patients with cracks or chips on their teeth, they help to keep the tooth from deteriorating further. Same day CEREC crowns protect these fragile teeth and prevent breakage in the future in just one day’s time. For broken teeth, these crowns can restore the ability to chew without the fear of breaking the tooth further. Same day CEREC crowns from your Mooresville dentist can also help with an existing filling that may become loose or dislodged in the future.
CEREC crowns also can help improve the look of the teeth. Whether changing the color, shape or length of the tooth, they are more successful than teeth whitening in more severe discoloration cases. They also have been successful at helping the teeth look more uniform for patients with crooked teeth.
During the CEREC process, an impression is made of the tooth that will receive the crown. The CEREC machine in the office can create this dental restoration in a short period of time while the patient waits. This means there’s no need for temporary crowns or another visit to restore the tooth that needs treatment.
