Restore your smile with CEREC one-day crowns in Middletown, IN
CEREC dental crowns are a convenient alternative to traditional dental crowns. At Titus Dentistry, we offer CEREC one-day crowns for patients in the Middletown, IN area using the latest technology to save you time and discomfort.
Dental crowns can hold a cracked or broken tooth together, protect decaying teeth, or cover a dental implant. Traditional crowns are made in a lab based on molds taken from your teeth. In some cases, it can take weeks before they are ready, and you will have to wear an uncomfortable temporary crown while you wait.
Preparing your tooth for a dental crown
Just like with traditional crowns, Dr. Jonathan Titus will need to examine the tooth to prepare it for the crown. Our office has state-of-the-art digital X-rays that are ready in seconds and significantly reduce radiation exposure for our patients and staff.
Dr. Titus will then remove any decay from your tooth and shape it with a file to fit the crown. If there is a risk of infection or injury to the tooth’s pulp, you may need a root canal. If too much of your tooth is missing to support the crown, he may have to build up your tooth with a resin-based filling material. Once your tooth is prepared, you’re ready for your new crown.
Restoring your smile with CEREC
Our office can create CEREC crowns using computer-aided design and manufacturing. During your appointment, Dr. Titus will use a small camera to take digital impressions of your mouth. The camera is small enough to fit into your mouth easily to minimize discomfort. Once the impressions are complete, the computer software will design a digital model using the digital images. Then your crown will be milled from high-quality ceramic for a long-lasting restoration within a matter of minutes.
Once the crown is complete, Dr. Titus will bond it in place and polish it for a natural look and feel that will blend in with the rest of your teeth. No need for a follow-up appointment or an uncomfortable temporary crown. Unlike metal crowns, an all-ceramic crown is made from biocompatible materials that won’t cause irritation or allergic reactions.
Superior Quality, Superior Value
Typically, a CEREC crown costs about the same as a traditional crown. The software that designs them is very accurate, so they rarely require the adjustments that often come with traditional crowns. With proper dental hygiene, CEREC dental crowns will last just as long as a traditional crown. That means it can be up to 15 years or more before you need a replacement.
At Titus Dentistry, we are committed to providing you with up-to-date treatment options and compassionate care. For patients who need a little extra support, we offer sedation dentistry to keep your mouth healthy and your smile happy without any additional stress.
