The Situations That Call for a Restoration

When a tooth is cracked, chipped, or even worn down by factors like bruxism this can expose sensitive inner structure to bacteria, a recipe for tooth decay and eventual infection, which can cause pain and threaten the stability of your smile. When you sustain an injury, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team. Likewise, if you experience persistent toothaches or sensitivity in the tooth. Our team will conduct a detailed examination with advanced digital technology to assess the cause and severity of the issues impacting your smile. In many cases, we can repair and restore the tooth with a dental crown!

Creating and Placing a Restoration

The process of creating and placing a crown can take as little as one visit. Our team starts by numbing the tooth being treated, so you’re comfortable as we remove tooth structure and gather detailed images to aid in the design and fabrication of your restoration. In the same visit, we create the restoration from materials like ceramic, which look natural, bond with the tooth, and absorb daily bite forces and pressures. We then attach them to the tooth with a powerful bonding agent, so you can leave with a restored tooth and relief from discomfort and complications. With proper care and attention, crowns can last for years to come, providing quality and lifelike restoration.

Preventing Injuries

You can also take steps to reduce the risk of an injured tooth. If you maintain good oral hygiene, which includes a healthy diet, brushing and flossing, and of course, visits for a checkup and cleaning every six months, you can reduce the risk of injury as your teeth stay strong and free of decay. If you play full contact sports, then talk to our team about creating a custom athletic mouthguard, which lowers the risk of chipped, cracked, or knocked loose/out teeth. If you have any questions about how we restore teeth with our custom dental crowns, or if you need attention for a damaged tooth, then please reach out to our team today to learn more. Let’s safeguard your smile in 2024!
