Welcome back to the Dores Dental blog. We strive to be your go-to dentist in Longmeadow, MA. Part of our mission is making it easier to get all of the dentistry solutions that you will need throughout your life.
Today we want to talk about crowns. In case you didn’t know, a dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth. This is done in an effort to restore its shape and size as well as its original strength. A crown is also utilized to help improve a tooth’s appearance. Once in-place, our crowns encompass the entire area of a tooth that lies above the gum line, and can be seen.
Dental crowns have been part of our restorative dentistry repertoire for many years, although it was never convenient for our patients until recently.
In the good, old days, it would have taken several office visits to complete the process of receiving a permanent crown. In actuality, it is still that way in many practices because they must outsource part of the process to a lab, leaving the patient at the mercy of strangers who are delegated to finish the job.
In certain cases, you would have been given the opportunity to wear a makeshift temporary crown until the final steps were completed. It was aggravating, as you can imagine, for patients who had busy schedules and better things to do than spend their free-time at the dentist’s office.
Nowadays, things work a little more efficiently, at least they do in our Longmeadow dentist’s office. As such, the treatment process for permanent crowns does not have to tie up so much of your time.
At Dores Dental, we can now prepare and place a permanent crown in just one visit!
No kidding! So, how do we do it?
It helps to have modern dental technology and a dynamic staff that embraces it.
In our Longmeadow, MA dentist’s office, we use a machine called CEREC to help us repair damaged teeth in a few short hours. Having this equipment at the ready allows us to provide strong, natural-looking restorations that will last forever (with proper care).
Same-Day Crowns Simplify Your Restoration
There are a number of reasons for seeking out a restorative dental treatment. Dental crowns are often used to repair severely damaged teeth or to restore teeth following a root canal procedure. Crowns are also used to restore dental implants, they are the final piece of the implant that takes on the look of an actual tooth.
If you are in need of dental crowns, they are now easier than ever to obtain at Dores Dental. Plus, they will make you feel better and look better fast.
Lucky for you, CEREC allows us to design and create your restoration in just one visit. It will be durable and pretty closely matched to the shade of your existing teeth. In something like 2 hours, you will be able to receive a permanent crown that will restore your tooth and help improve both the health and appearance of your smile.
