The Benefits of Providing Same-Day Crowns
Benefiting from CEREC Treatment
Crowns and bridges help preserve your teeth that are so worn or damaged that they cannot support normal use anymore, or have actually fallen out. Now, with our digital CEREC process, you can enjoy their benefits after just one appointment at our Danville, VA dental practice!
Dental crowns restore teeth to their normal shape, size, and function. The purpose of a crown is to make the tooth stronger or improve the way it looks. A crown is a cover or “cap” that covers the entire outer surface of your tooth. Crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, zirconia, or a combination of porcelain and metal. Our restorative team at VSP Dental prefers full porcelain crowns because they look natural (custom-matched to the color of your tooth) and provide long-lasting strength. You may need a crown if you have: a cavity that is too large for a filling, a tooth that is cracked, worn down, or otherwise weakened, had root canal treatment, or need a dental implant. The dental crown will protect the restored tooth or cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth—ultimately improving your smile!
Fixed Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are used to replace two or more missing teeth. They are supported at both ends by crowns secured to healthy abutment teeth or dental implants. A bridge also helps to restore your bite and helps keep the natural shape of your face. Our restorative team recommends you replace your missing tooth to ensure the long-term health of your smile. When you lose a tooth, the nearby teeth may tilt or drift into the empty space, affecting your bite and placing additional stress on your teeth and jaw joints. Drifted teeth are also at a higher risk for tooth decay, gum disease, and jawbone loss that can prematurely age your appearance. With a dental bridge fixed in place, you can avoid the short- and long-term consequences of losing a tooth!
In just a few hours, we’ll have your superior quality and fully custom dental crown or bridge ready to be fixed to your tooth or teeth!
Our Digital CEREC Treatment Process
Your same-day crowns and bridges appointment begins by removing the outer portion of the enamel from one or more of your natural teeth. This ensures that your dental crown or dental bridge will fit properly and also that any present decay is removed. Next, we use our intraoral scanner to take 3D images that will give us an exact model of the area for designing the new restoration. Using our sophisticated CAD/CAM software, we’ll custom design your new crown or bridge before sending it to our in-house CEREC milling machine.
This fully digital process ensures that your new restoration is perfectly fitted to your tooth the first time and most likely won’t need any adjustments before its color-matched and finished right in our on-site dental lab. In just a few hours, we’ll have your superior quality and fully custom dental crown or bridge ready to be fixed to your tooth or teeth! With the incredible precision and artistry of our cosmetic team, your restoration will look and feel completely natural, blending seamlessly in with your existing teeth.
