Yep, there’s no doubt about it. Your tooth is broken. You want it fixed as soon as possible. You want a CEREC dental crown from Kirchner Dental.
we can make a dental crown and place it on your tooth in a single visit to our dentist office.
At many dentists offices, you may need to make a couple visits weeks apart from one another to get your permanent dental crown placed. That’s not the case if you live in or near Jeffersonville, IN. In a few hours, we can make your crown in our office and put in over your broken tooth.
By the time you leave, your smile will look normal again, and you will be able to bite and chew as comfortably as you could with your natural tooth.
All you have to do is make an appointment with Dr. Michael Kirchner to learn more about this process.
What Can A CEREC Crown Do For You?
CEREC dental crowns can do what any dental crown can do. They can restore the shape, size, and color of a tooth, and they can protect the health parts of your teeth at the same time.
What sets CEREC apart is the way we are able to use our in-office milling machine to make your permanent crown while you wait.
We mentioned in our introduction that the crowns we make for our patients at Kirchner Dental can use to used to fix broken teeth, but really that’s just one of the many ways we can use dental crowns for our patient’s benefit.
Here are some of the other ways Dr. Kirchner can use crowns to benefit our patients:
▸ Cracked teeth — Chips and breaks are one way you can damage a tooth. Cracks are another. Biting into something particularly hard can open a crack in a tooth. Those cracks will spread if something it’s done to address them.
After the cracked parts of the tooth are removed, a dental crown can be used to cap the tooth and restore its shape.
▸ Decayed teeth — In a perfect world, no one would develop tooth decay. In the real world, more than 93 percent of Americans will have at least one cavity in their lives.
Small cavities can be repaired with dental fillings. Larger cavities require something more substantial, and dental crowns provide that.
▸ Worn down teeth — Over decades of use, our teeth can wear down just like anything else we use on a daily basis. If the wear becomes too great, you may notice increased tooth sensitivity, or your smile may look like you have short teeth.
A dental crown can rebuild the tooth to its original shape and size.
▸ Root canal treatments — As with cavities, we hope none of our patients develop infected tooth, although we know that some will. After the infection is removed, a dental crown is an effective way to protect the healthy parts of the tooth while restoring its function.
▸ Discolored teeth — Staining can affect teeth, but it’s also possible for individual teeth to become discolored due to injuries, illnesses, and interactions with medications. A dental crown can have the cosmetic benefit of giving you a tooth that matches the rest of your teeth once again.
▸ Misshapen teeth — There are times when teeth do not form in what we think of as common tooth shapes. In some cases, this can affect how you bite and chew food. In other cases, it can affect the overall appearance of your smile.
In either case, a dental crown can change the shape of the tooth to one that is more functional or aesthetically appealing.
