Why Do I Need a Dental Crown?
This procedure is common enough that many people have heard have a general idea of what a crown is, but they may not completely understand why a crown is necessary.
As a dental prosthetic, crowns are intended to replace portions of teeth that are decayed and require removal. Crowns can also encompass and protect a weak or damaged tooth, such as when dental enamel is deeply cracked or fractured.
If a tooth is healthy enough to be saved and restored, a crown is a preferable alternative to tooth extraction. After Dr. Morabito prepares your tooth by buffing away much of its visible structure, your crown is placed and cemented.
Crown Restoration Options: ¾ Crowns and Same-Day Treatment
While a whole crown is made to replace much of your tooth that is visible above the gum line, a full crown many not always be the preferred choice. In cases where decay is moderate and some portions of enamel can be saved, an onlay or inlay can be recommended; these are also called ¾ crowns.
As a CEREC dentist, Dr. Morabito can scan your smile and fabricate a completely ceramic dental crown in his office with just one appointment. If a crown has been recommended as a part of your treatment plan, ask us if you qualify for a same-day procedure.
