For all intents and purposes, a crown is a nearly perfect replica of the enamel layer of a tooth. This makes the crown nearly invulnerable to the normal ravages of tooth decay that is brought on by the natural bacteria in your mouth.
Your dentist, Dr. Haefner, commonly uses a crown to restore a tooth that is suffering from a large cavity. A crown could also be used to help a tooth that has suffered a chip, fracture or shallow crack. If the enamel layer isn’t replaced, the damaged surface will eventually harbor tooth decay.
Here at I Smile Mathis Ferry Dentistry, we have a CEREC which produces same-day dental crowns. This system allows us to create the crown in our office saving you time and money. These crowns are custom-made for your specific needs and matched to fit your smile, all here in our office.
If you have an issue with one of your teeth, you should call us at 843-884-1215 to explore your treatment and restoration options in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Our friendly staff is always here to help you with any questions or concerns you have pertaining to your oral health and beautiful smile.
