Many people in Franklin, Tennessee, have become interested in learning more about the benefits of holistic dentistry and tooth replacement.ental injuries can occur anytime, leaving you to deal with the unpleasant consequences of fractured or broken teeth. Fracturing your front teeth can be particularly exasperating as they’re the most visible when you smile. Even more exasperating is having to wait weeks to get your teeth repaired! At Nashville Restorative Dentistry in Franklin, Tennessee, Drs. Ryan Jones and Caleb Estes offer same-day crowns for front teeth as part of our restorative dental services to provide our patients with quick and effective repairs for damaged teeth.
Dental crowns are generally the go-to dental treatment for repairing damaged teeth. Teeth that are weak, cracked, broken, or compromised by severe decay won’t last long without treatment. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that dentists place over damaged teeth to keep them intact and prevent further damage. Crowning damaged teeth restores their function, strength, and appearance so you can smile with confidence again.
Traditional crown treatment can take two visits and several weeks to complete, as you would typically leave your first visit with a temporary crown on the tooth while the permanent crown is being fabricated in an outside lab. At Nashville Restorative Dentistry, we use CEREC technology to custom-design, fabricate and deliver your crown on the same day as your initial dental visit. Customizing your crown ensures it blends in seamlessly with your smile to restore its esthetic appeal.
CEREC crowns are made of ceramic or zirconia material, known for their strength, biocompatibility, and beautiful, tooth-colored appearance. Customized porcelain crowns will look exactly like your natural teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile. They’ll also have the strength to withstand the pressure of biting and chewing to restore tooth functionality.
CEREC crowns offer all the benefits of traditional crowns and more due to the precision of CAD/CAM technology.
You care for dental crowns like you do natural teeth – with good dental hygiene and routine dental cleanings. During routine dental visits, your dentist can check the health of your crowns at the same time as he or she evaluates the health of your teeth. Proper care of your crowns can extend their lifespan to help you get the most from your treatment.
Although porcelain crowns are strong, they’re not indestructible. Habits like chewing on ice or using your teeth like tools to open bottles and tear open packages can damage your crowns or cause them to come loose.
