CEREC crowns are widely used in cosmetic dentistry and are useful for fixing a variety of dental dilemmas and issues.

Some Common Reasons You Might Benefit from a CEREC Same-Day Crown

During your consultation with Dr. Prentice and team, we’ll be able to discuss your treatment options so that we create a plan for your smile that suits you best. Here are some of the most common dental issues that can be improved with a CEREC same-day crown:

  • Damaged or Broken Crowns

After about a decade or so, you might find yourself in need of a new dental crown. Sometimes your dental crown can be affected by decay and deterioration, so it’s important to have it fixed as soon as possible to avoid any further damage. This makes a same-day CEREC crown in Bend your ideal choice because they’re placed in a day and save you multiple visits to the dentist. 

  • Broken, Cracked Teeth

Whether it’s due to many years of use or some trauma, your teeth can break at a moment’s notice. When a filling is used to seal off the damaged portion of your tooth, it can become fragile, especially in your premolars and molars. Consider having a CEREC crown as a new cap for your tooth that helps restore your smile and your confidence. 

  • Extreme Tooth Decay

Whenever you experience tooth decay treatment, you’re most likely going to lose part of your tooth in the process. This is where a CEREC same-day crown can help protect your tooth in instances where decay has taken over. This will help to prevent your teeth from further deterioration in the future in conjunction with your regular visits to our dental office in Bend.

  • A Root Canal

When one of your molars or posterior teeth undergoes root canal therapy, a CEREC crown will be required. We don’t want to leave your tooth at risk for fractures in the future, so it needs to be appropriately covered with a custom restoration designed just for you. We help keep your teeth intact. 

It’s important to note that proper care is still required to prolong how long your CEREC same-day crown will last. You’ll want to avoid using your teeth as tools to open bags etc. It’s also essential that you brush and floss your teeth regularly. If you’re interested in seeing how CEREC crowns work and if you’re a candidate for treatment, then you should schedule your consultation at our Bend dental office today.
