Tooth pain and damage can keep your smile from looking as best as it possibly can. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, a healthy-looking smile is important to the vast majority of Americans – over 99%.

Thankfully, Adams Dental Group offers same day crowns, and can restore your smile in as little as one dental visit! Curious if you need a dental crown? Let’s discuss 3 things you need to understand about dental crowns.

What are CEREC Same Day Crowns?

According to WebMD, dental crowns consist of tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a tooth to restore the health and look of the tooth. At Adams Dental Group, we are expertly trained in placing same day crowns, also known as CEREC crowns. Similar to the traditional crown, CEREC crowns are made out of ceramic and are colored to match the surrounding teeth.

However, there are some pretty big advantages to the CEREC same day crown. Mostly, they’re quick, easy, and strong! It’s a great, convenient way to obtain a crown when it’s needed. Instead of taking uncomfortable moldings (think goopy impressions) of the tooth and sending those off to a lab, CEREC crowns are made in-house at Adams Dental Group. We simply take digital pictures of the tooth with our CEREC technology and create the crown in the same dental visit, saving lots of time.

Reasons Why You Might Need a Crown

Now that we know how a CEREC same day crown helps improve your smile and can be placed in a single visit, it’s good to know when you might need a crown in the future. There are a few main reasons for a crown in adults:

  • To restore a broken tooth.
  • To hold a dental bridge in place.
  • Covering dental implants.
  • Protecting a tooth from decay.
  • Root canals – to strengthen and reinforce a tooth that has had a root canal.
  • Large cavities.
  • Repairing discolored teeth.
  • Repairing worn down teeth.
