Tooth decay can be a tricky problem. A small hole in the enamel may cause pain and discomfort. It may leave you grasping your cheek for hours. You may deprive yourself from sleep at night. The agony also comes when people stop you from eating your favorite food. You may need to suffer these until a dentist pulls out the damaged tooth.
You do not really need to wait for things to get worse. Dental crowns can prevent problems like tooth decay. These caps cover your enamel and keep food from penetrating the surface. These reduce the bacteria that create holes and cause infection. You may not stop them from brushing alone, though.
What Dental Crowns Can Do
Dental crowns help in many ways. If you have sensitive teeth, these caps let you eat cold and hot food. You can enjoy your favorite ice cream and fruit shakes without feeling any throbbing. You can also hold a cracked tooth together by getting dental crowns. These crowns can save chipped or damaged tooth.
Dental crowns through CEREC
A new technology produces dental crowns faster. Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or commonly known as CEREC™, reinforces the traditional methods. Before, it was necessary to fit a mold in the mouth to get the exact size. It also took weeks to produce the caps. If patients already felt some pain due to damaged tooth, they waited longer and visited the clinic more often.
Our dental clinic may help ease the discomfort faster. With our CEREC™ equipment, we measure and provide dental crowns in one sitting. You may only need to sit while we take a picture of your mouth. From there, our machine creates the mold through 3D Imaging. You can receive dental caps that look like real teeth and go home relieved on the same day.
Let us protect your teeth before problems occur. Contact our Huntersville NC dentist for more information about dental crowns and CEREC™.
