At Lake Orion Family Dentistry, we understand your schedule can be hectic. After all, between work, school, and home, who has time to visit the dentist? Unfortunately, this keeps many people who require immediate dental care from ever visiting our practice. Thankfully, your Lake Orion dentist, Dr. Brad Greenfield, understands how busy your life can be. This is why we strive to offer convenient care without sacrificing quality. In today’s blog, Dr. Greenfield discusses how we can protect and preserve your smile with our one-visit crowns.
What is a Dental Crown?
A crown is a cap that fits completely over the visible portion of your tooth. Applied with a powerful bonding agent, our crowns are custom-made from special dental porcelain. Crowns mimic the look and function of a natural tooth, providing restoration that blends seamlessly with your smile.
How Do I Know If I Need a Crown?
A dental crown is often prescribed for patients suffering from dental damage due to advanced tooth decay or periodontitis. Other times, trauma may compromise a tooth, requiring a crown to protect it from bacteria and further injury. Finally, crowns are used to replace missing teeth in dental implant and dental bridge procedures.
CEREC is a state-of-the-art technology that allows your Lake Orion MI cosmetic dentist to create and place a dental crown in just one visit. Typically, receiving a crown requires two visits and a two-week interval in which patients wear a temporary crown. With CEREC, Dr. Greenfield can craft a custom-made crown from dental ceramic in a single appointment, returning your tooth to optimal function and appearance.
