Save time on dental appointments with one-day CEREC crowns service in Middletown
Dental crowns are crucial for preventing tooth loss, but many patients don’t have flexibility with their schedule for multiple trips to the dentist. Titus Dentistry has invested in the latest technologies to improve patient care. We offer patients in the Middletown area one day CEREC crowns service to restore functionality and protect your teeth.
Benefits of CEREC crowns
Dental crowns are crucial for preserving teeth that are damaged from trauma or decay. Dr. Titus uses dental crowns to add stability to teeth with cavities too large for a filling or after root canal therapy to prevent tooth loss. The crown sits over the tooth like a cap to seal out bacteria from causing more damage.
CEREC crowns are made from durable porcelain that mimics the natural appearance of your tooth and can last for decades with proper care. They are milled from ceramic blocks that come in a variety of colors to help them blend in with your other teeth. The process is completed in the office in a matter of minutes, so you won’t have to worry about a temporary crown or waiting for the dental lab to complete your restoration.
What to expect from the process
Dr. Titus will first need to address any decay or infections in your tooth. Depending on the extent of the damage, he may need to use dental bonding to build up the surface area of your tooth, and he will have to remove the outer layer of your enamel and round off your tooth so that the crown can fit snuggly over your tooth without sitting to close to the adjacent teeth. Once your tooth is prepared, he’ll make digital impressions with a small camera and use the CEREC software to design your restoration.
The CEREC machine will mill your crown in about 15 minutes, and Dr. Titus will check the fit and make adjustments for your comfort. Next, he’ll bond the crown in place using dental cement, and you’ll be ready to get back to your normal routine. Caring for your crown is no different than your normal brushing and flossing routine, and Dr. Titus can provide preventative care to preserve your teeth for years to come.
