If you have a severely chipped or cracked tooth, Gwaltney Dental is here to help you restore your smile. Severe chips and cracks may cause chewing discomfort and dental decay the longer they are left untreated. It’s important to see a dentist right away if you experience tooth damage or decay.
When you visit our office with a dental health concern, our goal is to help you restore your smile using the best treatment options possible. Some teeth, if damaged extensively, may require more extensive care like a total tooth extraction to allow the tooth to be completely replaced using alternatives like dental implants.
However, we know how important it is to save natural tooth structure for the integrity of your bite. This is why we utilize dental crowns whenever possible to help patients enjoy a restored smile without having to extract a tooth.
Using advanced digital technology we may offer a same day dental crown. This enables patients to have a tooth restored in a single visit. Your dentist will make the most appropriate recommendation based on your oral health condition, aesthetic needs, and budget.
Dental Crowns in Suffolk, VA
Dr. Steve Gwaltney, Dr. J.Ryland Gwaltney, and Dr. Whitney Gwaltney are highly-trained restorative dentists in Suffolk, VA. They have helped many patients restore their smiles following dental damages using dental crowns. Dental crowns are porcelain caps designed to replace the entire exterior of your tooth.
If a tooth is severely damaged, we will file it down to its foundational core to prepare for a dental crown, allowing you to maintain tooth-root functionality for your restoration. Then, the dental crown will be placed over the tooth’s foundational core. It will functionally replace your damaged tooth while also protecting the core of the tooth from further damage.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns
Our office provides same-day dental crowns using CEREC technology. Traditional dental crowns often require multiple visits as offices have to send out the dental impressions of your natural tooth to an out-of-office lab in order to create the crown.
However, with our CEREC technology, we are able to take optical impressions, design, and create your custom crown in our office within a single appointment. This is much more convenient for patients and allows them to leave our office with a fully restored smile following experiencing dental damages.
CEREC crowns are designed to look like your natural tooth and blend in with your smile. This allows you to maintain the natural appearance of your smile so you can face the world with confidence.
