Dental Crowns for South Ogden, UT Teeth
Kevin L. Norris, D.M.D. has a variety of dental treatments for patients in South Ogden, UT, including cosmetic options like dental crowns. A dental crown is a custom-made restoration that fits over a prepared tooth to restore its appearance and function. We use crowns for many reasons, including restorative purposes and aesthetic aspirations. You may have a tooth that’s weakened by cracks, wear or other damage, or you have a cavity that’s too big for a filling. Other reasons to get a dental crown include restoring a tooth and protecting it from infection after root canal therapy, as well as if you have a poorly shaped or discolored tooth. We use the latest in dental technology, such as Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC), to speed up and simplify the process of creating restorations.
The Process for Placing a Dental Crown
We want our dental procedures to be as quick and painless as possible, which is why many of them can be completed with same-day service. Cosmetic treatments like dental crowns are easily manageable in one appointment using CEREC technology to produce restorations that look and function like your natural teeth in a small fraction of the time it takes to create conventional crowns. This technology combines an onsite camera, computer, and milling services to ensure a high-quality crown with a precise fit. We’ve summarized the process you can expect when you visit us to have a crown placed on one of your teeth.
Summarized Process When You Place a Crown on Your Teeth
1. The dentist prepares your tooth by removing the outer portion, which allows the crown to fit over it. We will remove any decay and build up your tooth’s core if we need additional tooth structure to support the crown.
2. We use Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) technology to capture an impression of your prepared tooth, which gets modeled in the computer to make a crown that fits the tooth precisely.
3. During the milling process, we make a dental crown that looks closely like your natural teeth to ensure it blends with the rest of your mouth once it’s put in place. The durable crown offers a dependable biting surface and protects your tooth from infection or damage.
4. Once the crown is ready, the dentist places it over your tooth and makes any necessary adjustments so that it fits perfectly. The crown is cemented in place using a dental adhesive, and you have a fully restored tooth ready for use.
