Dental crowns help improve smiles in Parkville, MO, assisting with repairs for cracks or chips, and offering solutions to decay and infection. While at one time, receiving one meant making time for two to three visits, we have an alternative that better fits our patients’ busy schedules. With advanced technology, we can create and place crowns in one visit.
The Benefits of Custom Dental Crowns
Not only do custom-made crowns fit comfortably, they also offer a number of cosmetic and restorative benefits. First, the material we create them with looks natural and matches the rest of your smile. The ceramic we use also offers durability and can last for decades with proper care and attention. When we place them, we can repair chips and cracks in the teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and offer solutions to permanent discoloration or naturally malformed teeth. We place them to repair tooth decay and infection, and also secure dental bridges and restore single tooth dental implants as well!
The Same Day Process
They no longer require between two and three visits to complete. Instead, we complete the entire process in one sitting. With CAD/CAM technology, we begin by prepping the tooth, removing structure from the tooth. We take detailed digital impressions, which are used to make a 3D computer model. The dentist then designs the restoration and uploads the information into an onsite milling machine. The machine crafts them from a solid block of ceramic. We then check the fit and place them with a powerful bonding agent. The entire process, start to finish, only takes a single visit to complete!
Maintaining Your New Restoration
To keep your crown bright, and safeguard the tooth it’s attached to, you need to maintain optimal oral health. We suggest brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes and flossing every night before bed. These steps help control plaque buildup and protect teeth from cavities and gum disease. A checkup every six months enables our team to monitor your smile, and a cleaning completely removes plaque, a major component for keeping your smile safe and bright. We may also suggest healthy snack and drink options as well. With these steps, you safeguard your natural teeth, as well as your new restoration.
