You’re munching on some toffee when you suddenly bite down on something very hard and painful. Upon inspection, you realize a piece of tooth has broken and fallen out of your mouth. What do you do now? If you’ve ever found yourself in an unfortunate emergency dental situation like this, you know how alarming it can be, especially if it happens after regular business hours. In times like this, you realize how important it is to have the contact information for your emergency dentist on-hand.
Drs. Brian Altrock and Christine Fabb are no strangers to dental emergencies. Whether you’re suffering from a sudden onset of severe tooth pain or you’ve chipped a tooth, they can help. They offer same-day CEREC dental crowns that make unexpected dental problems much less stressful.
When you’re dealing with a dental emergency, the last thing you want to worry about is making multiple appointments with your dentist. However, that is exactly what’s required if you visit a dentist who offers traditional crowns.
Most dental crowns are made outside the dental office and take anywhere from days to weeks to complete. This means you need to wear a temporary crown while you wait for your permanent crown to be created, then return to the dentist’s office to have it placed. Since CEREC crowns are created in-office with the help of advanced technology, they can be placed during your initial treatment appointment. Additional benefits of CEREC crowns include:
Due to the advanced technology used to create CEREC crowns, they are very lifelike and fit perfectly in the mouth. They are also precisely color-matched to the rest of your teeth to create the most natural appearance.
