CEREC Crown: The One-Day Rundown

As a basic staple in the repertoire of the dental profession for many years are dental crowns. They are perhaps one of the most well-known and commonly performed procedures.

As you’re probably aware, a conventional dental crown (to put it simply) is a method of restoration in which a tooth-shaped cap is placed over a damaged or decayed tooth. It effectively covers the entire tooth that is exposed above the gum line. The purpose of this crown is not only to improve the patient’s overall oral health by restoring and strengthening the tooth, but to provide the patient with a smile that is aesthetically pleasing and functional as well. While the conventional dental crown remains a popular and sought-after solution, the process of receiving a crown has not always been the most desirable experience.

I had a Root Canal. Why do I need a Porcelain Crown?

Root canals can save a tooth from decay, but they can also make it weak. A porcelain crown solidifies the tooth and maintains its integrity after it has been destroyed, by either tooth decay or from a trauma.

When the pulp inside a tooth is infected or no longer living, Dr. Roberts at Adams Dental Group can treat the tooth through a root canal by removing the pulp and apply filling to replace it. When performing routine root canals; however, Dr. Roberts will drill through the tooth and then remove infected and decayed enamel, dentin and pulp. Because root canals also remove the pulp, the teeth involved can no longer function as living things. Over time, this deficit causes them to lose strength and become likely to fracture.

If your tooth needs a root canal, it probably already had a large cavity that reached the pulp chamber, where the nerve is located. Most of the time, after Dr. Roberts properly cleans the decay from the tooth and root canal treatment is completed there isn’t enough healthy dental material to restore a tooth with just a filling. It’s necessary to complete the treatment with a porcelain crown to make sure the tooth will not eventually break.
