Dental damage is a common oral problem that we help our patients solve here at Pure Dental Spa. We use high-quality dental materials and modern dental technology, like our CEREC same-day crown system and CAD/CAM software, to craft phenomenally-fitted, lifelike restorations. If you have a damaged, sensitive, or worn-down tooth that needs some extra support and protection, don’t hesitate to call our dental office today to learn how we can help with restorative dentistry in Chicago, IL.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over your existing tooth for a variety of reasons. It is most often used to restore the original size, shape, or appearance of the natural tooth, but it may be placed to help stabilize a dental bridge or to cover a dental implant.
When you have had extensive work done on a particular tooth, such as root canal or a very large filling, a crown may be recommended to protect the tooth or to improve its appearance. Crowns in Lincoln Park are also used to help strengthen a cracked tooth or one that is in danger of breaking.
There are several types of materials that dental crowns can be made from, including metal, resin, and ceramic. Ceramic crowns provide the best aesthetic result and are less prone to cracking or wearing away then resin crowns. They also have an advantage over crowns that contain metal, as many people suffer from metal allergies.
In the past, dentists would use amalgam (which is a combination of different metals) to fill cavities and prevent them from spreading. Not only are they noticeable, but they also result in side-effects like tooth and gum discoloration and dental sensitivity. Today, we utilize a material that’s gentler on your gum tissue and tooth, called composite resin. It can be custom-shaded to match the color of your teeth and chemically fuses with your natural enamel, requiring that less of your tooth structure is removed in order for it to be placed.
For many people, it is difficult to find time in their busy schedules for everything they have to do, let alone make time for going to the dentist. Although we cannot eliminate that dental visit for you, we can make it infinitely more convenient and comfortable.
At Pure Dental Spa, new CEREC technology allows Dr. Patel to take a quick scan of your teeth and mill your dental crown in-office within a single appointment. After matching the ceramic color to your existing teeth, you’ll take a seat and enjoy our relaxing spa atmosphere, and before you know it, you’ll be on your way out of our door with your permanent crown. These visits last about an hour and a half on average. No multiple visits, no temporary crowns or bridges—just a beautiful, healthy, fully restored smile!
We offer comprehensive dental care at our dental office, including restorations, dental prosthetics, and cosmetic treatments. If you have dental damage, missing teeth, and other imperfections that you’d like to address at one time, we can plan out a full mouth reconstruction for you. We’ll speak with you about your goals and create a custom-tailored treatment timeline to build a functional, beautiful smile that you’re happy to don.
