There are a lot of issues that can affect our teeth, from discoloration to a chipped or cracked tooth. One of the ways to restore a tooth is by using a dental crown.
Dental crowns cover the visible area of a tooth and are used in many situations, including:
- Treating discoloration
- Supporting a dental bridge
- Covering dental implants
- Protecting a broken or cracked tooth
In the past, dental crowns could take weeks or even months to be created leaving you with a problematic tooth. At Dr. Cochran’s office, we are able to create a dental crown in just one appointment with the use of a method called CEREC, which stands for “chair-side economical restoration of esthetic ceramics.”
CEREC crowns offer our patients a comfortable and exact fitting dental crown that can be done on the same day. Feel free to contact us today to learn more.
