CEREC Tooth Crown Technology In Fargo
A crown is a type of dental restoration that completely caps, or encircles, a tooth or dental implant. It can be needed when a tooth has become heavily decayed, or often after undergoing another dental procedure, such as root canal therapy. A tooth crown provides for necessary protection against any future fractures. Using CEREC technology, our Fargo dentist is able to create dental crowns in a shorter time period, allowing patients to restore their smiles more quickly!
Dental crowns are most commonly made of either porcelain or gold. Gold is beneficial because it is very strong in thin sections and it is easy to cast. Porcelain is often preferred for its very natural appearance and is usually used when the dental crown is being placed on a front tooth.
Common Reasons For A Tooth Crown
- To strengthen a tooth after root canal therapy
- To restore a tooth that has been severely worn down
- To cover a dental implant
- To cap teeth on either side of a dental bridge
- To cover a tooth that has had a particularly large filling
- To keep a cracked tooth from completely breaking
- To restore a broken tooth
Will Dental Crowns Last?
Although the length of time really varies by person, if a dental crown is properly cared for, it should last for many years and withstand normal use.
