& Implant Dentistry
Several advancements in dentistry now allow your natural teeth to be preserved for longer than before. Now, severely damaged teeth can be repaired using dental crowns in Fort Worth, saving them from an extraction. Dr. Gary N. Pointer uses high-quality materials to create custom-made caps to treat decayed or broken teeth, allowing them to remain in place for several years to come. In some cases, they can even be used to help treat tooth loss or to improve the appearance of your smile. No matter the reason, you will make a long-term investment in your oral health.
A dental crown is one of the most widely used treatments to save a damaged tooth. Using digital impressions of your tooth, a custom-made cap is made from all-ceramic material, so it will look natural. It is then bonded over your tooth to add a layer of protection while sealing out bacteria. Made from strong and durable materials, it will look and feel like a natural tooth to restore its health, function, and appearance.
Crowns are quite versatile. They are most often used in restorative dentistry to treat severely damaged or broken teeth. In some cases, they are used in combination with other restorative treatments, like a root canal. After the pulp has been removed from your tooth, a dental crown will be placed over it to restore its function.
Crowns also offer preventive benefits, such as to save a weakened tooth from breaking. They can even be used for cosmetic reasons to cover dark tooth discoloration or to improve the size, shape, or appearance of a tooth. They also play a valuable role in replacing missing teeth.
Among the most affordable and convenient solutions to replace one or more missing teeth in a row involves the use of a dental bridge. Custom-made prosthetic teeth are created to fill the empty space. Dental crowns are then bonded to the adjacent teeth to anchor it in place.
No matter if you need a dental crown for restorative, preventive, or cosmetic purposes, your dentist in Fort Worth, Dr. Pointer, has the solution you need. He embraces the latest technology to simplify the process without compromising the results. Instead of needing multiple appointments and a temporary crown, you will get the restoration you need in just one day using CEREC.
After preparing your tooth, he will take digital impressions to create your crown to meet your exact specifications. The images are sent to in-office CAD/CAM software to create your restoration to meet your exact specifications. The information is then sent to the in-office milling machine. It will be cut from a single block of all-ceramic material. In less than an hour, it will be ready to be bonded in place. You will walk out with a healthy, beautiful smile.
