Good oral hygiene and routine dental care are the best ways to minimize extra trips to the dentist. Yet, even the most diligent of patients may face issues such as tooth decay, tooth injury, or permanent tooth discoloration. When issues like this arise, patients in Austin, Texas, can count on Dr. David Frank and the team at Walden Dental for a variety of tooth restoration options, such as dental crowns.
If a tooth has suffered deep decay or injury, a straightforward filling may not be able to address the problem. In these cases, Dr. Frank may recommend a dental crown to restore oral health and protect the tooth from further damage. A dental crown completely covers the natural tooth structure.
Dental crowns are commonly recommended in the following scenarios:
Having a dental crown placed typically requires two appointments. In the past, the first visit included:
However, at Walden Dental, we offer same-day CEREC crowns. This means that you don’t have to wait for two separate visits to have your fully restored smile. Once the damage is treated, you will be fitted with your new crown on the same day.
With CEREC, we use digital imaging and CAD/CAM software to design and fabricate your dental crown in a single visit. Once the crown is ready, Dr. Frank will check the crown for proper fit and can make minor adjustments as needed. The dental crown can be attached with a permanent bonding material, and you can leave the office with your brand-new smile.
To learn more about same-day CEREC crowns, call Walden Dental in Austin, Texas, at (512) 883-8450.
