Your teeth are capable of withstanding a tremendous amount of wear. Through chewing, bacterial buildup, and lifestyle habits that you may have, your teeth still stand the test of time. However, they are also capable of sustaining damage if you don’t give them the care they need. Proper oral healthcare requires diligence and consistency. When you fall behind, your teeth may suffer. If you have a tooth that has been subject to infection or physical damage, you may need a dental restoration. Thanks to modern technology, your prospects for tooth recovery have never been better.
Dental Crowns Can Protect and Restore Damaged Teeth
Your dentist can use dental fillings to clean and restore minor cavities. If you don’t treat those cavities right away though, they may grow in size and scope. Over time, a small cavity can become a huge oral health problem. Your cavity may be too large to restore with a filling, or the infection may spread to the root canals. In these cases, your dentist will use a dental crown to restore the tooth. Made from a lifelike ceramic material, dental crowns cover and protect damaged teeth to preserve the root structure. Technological advancements make this process even easier.
CEREC Technology Makes Tooth Recovery Even Better
CEREC technology uses 3-D modeling to help your dentist recreate a complete picture of your mouth and teeth. Using this model, your dentist can turn to a CEREC machine to fabricate a custom dental crown for you in a matter of minutes. Your dentist will first use an imaging instrument to model the inside of your mouth. That hyper-accurate model runs directly to a machine that takes a small block of ceramic material and carves it into a dental crown that precisely matches the specifications.
Faster Recovery Times Improve Your Oral Health
The traditional method of fabricating dental crowns required a lot of waiting. You would have to schedule an appointment for your measurements. Your dentist would send those measurements to another facility. The facility would fabricate the crown and send it back. Your dentist would fit you for the new crown and make adjustments based on fit and comfort. Thanks to CEREC technology, you can receive your dental crown in one office visit. Recovering from tooth damage right away is in the best interest of your long-term oral health.
