Having a damaged tooth can be painful and cause issues in your day to day life. If you need a dental crown and need one fast, you may feel overwhelmed with your choices—sometimes even helpless because the process can take so long. That’s why your dentist in Lincoln Park offers CEREC same day dental crowns. We are here to help you understand why getting a dental crown from our office is the best step when it comes to the future of your smile.
Why would I need a dental crown?
Do you really need a dental crown? You might if you need to:
- Protect a weak tooth (from decay or damage) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth.
- Restore an already broken toothor a tooth that has been severely worn down.
- Cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left.
- Hold a dental bridge in place.
- Cover misshaped or seriously discolored tooth.
- Cover a dental implant.
- To save a tooth that has been so damaged by decay that it can’t support a filling.
- To protect children who are at high risk for tooth decay, especially when a child has difficulty keeping up with daily oral hygiene.
If you’re trying to decide between traditional and a CEREC dental crown in Lincoln Park, consider these important points:
CEREC Crowns Are Durable
CEREC uses computer-aided design and creation techniques backed by our dental expertise to ensure a good fit, extending the lifetime of your dental crown. Digital impressions often eliminate inaccuracies that are common with old-fashioned impression material.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns Require Only One Appointment
Our CEREC milling machine makes it possible for you to have your permanent crown in one appointment. Lab-created crowns can take a couple of weeks to complete, depending on the waiting period required for the lab to complete your case.
CEREC Crowns Are Made of Ceramic
Ceramic is strong and looks great! Instead of worrying about an unsightly, dark metal crown or filling, we can create your perfect matching dental crown out of tooth-colored materials. This helps many patients that are allergic to metallic products and prevents the darkening of your natural teeth as well.
CEREC Crowns Are Cosmetically Pleasing
CEREC same-day crowns look natural among your permanent adult teeth. They blend in seamlessly! If you need a crown on a front tooth and it needs to match its adjacent teeth perfectly, you can be confident that you’ll achieve just that when you visit your dentist at Comprehensive Dental.
