Do You Have Any of These Issues? You May Need a Dental Crown
Tooth DecayIn some cases, a cavity is too severe for a filling. Our dentist uses a crown to protect the tooth and prevent more substantial oral health problems from developing.
Missing ToothDental crowns are commonly used with dental implants to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants provide outstanding support and provide the stimulation necessary to stop the jawbone recession that otherwise follows the loss of a tooth.
Root CanalRoot canal treatment saves your tooth, but leaves it vulnerable to damage. A dental crown provides tremendous strength and restores the tooth's functionality.
Cosmetic ImperfectionsWhile typically used for restorative purposes, a dental crown can also address cosmetic issues such as a discolored tooth or a tooth that is too big or small.
The Same-Day Crown Process
Our dentist conducts a consultation at our El Paso office to determine if a crown is right for you. Any preparatory procedures such as a root canal must be completed before getting a crown. To begin the crown treatment process, the top and sides of your tooth are reshaped to ensure a proper fit.
Design and Fabrication
We use the CEREC technology to take impressions of your tooth and then create it using automated tools. We customize the design to mimic your natural tooth and mill the crown out of porcelain. Patients can wait in our office until their crown is finished and ready for placement.
Once the crown is ready, our dentist places it on the tooth to ensure a proper fit. He can easily make any adjustments at this time before permanently bonding the crown to the tooth. The entire process is completed in just one appointment at our El Paso office.
