Dental crowns are great restorations. They can restore strength and beauty to heavily damaged teeth. You might look at a tooth and think it’s lost, but with a dental crown, we may be able to save that tooth. More than save it, we can make it strong and beautiful again.
But sometimes the process of getting a dental crown isn’t the best. There may be discomfort associated with preparing the tooth, the nuisance of having a temporary crown placed, and needing another visit to the dentist to have the crown placed. But no more. We offer a premium dental crown experience that prioritizes your comfort and convenience in getting the dental crown placed.
And the results are outstanding!
A Comfortable Experience
With the tools and technologies available to us in modern dentistry, most dental discomfort can be avoided. Local anesthesia allows us to eliminate discomfort associated with tooth preparation.
Some people think this doesn’t work for them. The problem is likely not with the anesthesia, it’s anxiety. Much dental discomfort is related to anxiety. Being anxious at the dentist can make it harder for you to get numb, and it can cause your body to eliminate anesthesia more rapidly than average. Fortunately, with sedation dentistry, we can eliminate your anxiety so you’re more comfortable during your procedure.
If you’ve always had trouble getting numb or experience more than usual discomfort after a procedure, you should try sedation dentistry and see how much it improves your experience.
Same-Day Dental Crowns
We also have the tools to deliver your dental crown the same day your tooth is prepared. That means there’s no need for a temporary crown, and no need for a second dental visit. It’s made while you wait.
In the past, dental crowns were manufactured at a dental lab. But with our CEREC system, we can manufacture crowns in our office. Once we prepare your tooth, we can design the crown on our computer and a robotic factory will carve the crown right here. After some final adjustments, you’re ready to go.
Another benefit of our premium dental crown experience is that you will be very pleased with the results. The CEREC crowns can actually look better than crowns made in a lab. That’s because lab crowns are completely finished and can’t have their color adjusted very much. Once we get the crown, if we’re not happy with the appearance, we either have to send it back or live with the imperfect match.
But with CEREC, Dr. Polley can more easily adjust the coloration of the newly-made dental crown. That ensure the perfect match between the crown and your natural teeth.
