While it’s understandable that you’d want to hide your damaged teeth from others, that’s really hard to do. You can’t cover your mouth whenever you talk or laugh. And if you try to just live with it, the damage can often get worse over time.
Call our Lincroft, NH dental office today at (732) 352-3903 and make your next appointment for a CEREC dental crown. These dental restorations will hide cosmetic problems and make your tooth stronger at the same time. Our dentists are very experienced in using dental crowns and have helped many people feel much more confident about their teeth.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Restorative dentistry treatments repair (and thereby restore) your teeth, and that’s exactly what dental crowns are for. Each dental crown is a thin but strong cap shaped and colored to look like a healthy tooth. Because it’s a cap, it fits snugly over one of your existing teeth.
Some of the reasons why you might need a dental crown include:
- Worn edges and biting surfaces
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Chipped or cracked enamel
- Worn enamel
- Fractured teeth
If you have any of these problems, call Newman Springs Dental Care today and schedule an appointment. Our dentists can expertly restore your teeth with dental crowns.
CEREC Technology For Same-Day Crowns
Normally, you would have to wait weeks until you can get a dental crown to repair your tooth. That’s because many dental offices have to send measurements of your smile to a lab, where technicians will make your dental crown.
Because our dentists stay current with some of the latest dental technology and research, there’s a much faster alternative: CEREC same-day dental crowns.
When you come into our Lincroft, NJ, our dental team will take detailed, 3D scans of your teeth. Then using our CEREC machine, you’ll have your dental crown made right here. Instead of waiting weeks, you can get your dental crown the same day as your appointment.
How CEREC Dental Crowns Help Your Smile
Dental crowns are one of the most versatile dental restorations available. Here are just three ways dental crowns can help your smile.
– Dental crowns hold a cracked tooth together so it can safely stay.
If you have a rough sports injury, car accident, or just a bad fall, you can easily crack the enamel on a tooth. These cracks jeopardize your whole tooth. Even if they start out small, they can grow big enough to fracture a tooth.
By calling our Lincroft, NJ dental office, you can make an appointment to repair a cracked tooth with a dental crown. If the crack is small, the dental crown will make sure it doesn’t grow. And if that crack is already big, your CEREC dental crown will hold it tightly together.
– Dental crowns repair tooth decay too large for a regular filling.
Harmful bacteria in your mouth produce an acid that erodes your enamel. This is called tooth decay, and the decayed holes in the enamel are cavities. Typically, you can get a dental filling to repair tooth decay. However, a filling needs enough strong, healthy enamel around it to bond with. If a cavity is too big, a filling will just fall out.
Thankfully, you can call Newman Springs Dental Care today and get a dental crown. Because it covers the entire visible part of a tooth, it will seal up a cavity and repair the damage just as well.
– Dental crowns protect teeth damaged by injuries or infection.
Sometimes, a tooth that’s hit really hard doesn’t crack. Instead, a chip of the enamel comes off. This is more than just not fun to look at. It weakens the tooth and can make chewing hurt sometimes. Worse is when a crack or infection allows bacteria to infect the inside of your tooth. This starts to make your enamel brittle and easy to break again.
That’s why you need to call our Lincroft dentists today and make an appointment for a dental crown. This will seal the damaged tooth, preventing infection and making it stronger.
Call TODAY at (732) 352-3903 or use our convenient online form to make your next appointment for dental crowns. Because our dentists have their own CEREC machine, you can get your dental crowns the same day as you come in. That means you’ll get improvements to your smile much faster.
