If you have ever gotten a dental crown before, you may remember that the process involved at least two appointments. But here at Healthy Smiles Dental Care, we can restore a damaged tooth with a high-quality crown in just one visit thanks to the CEREC system! You can count on us to repair your smile in a timely manner with a restoration that has been expertly personalized just for you. Call our office today if you’re interested in getting a CEREC same-day crown.
CEREC is a state-of-the-art system that allows us to create dental crowns in-office instead of needing to rely on an outside laboratory. Our CEREC unit includes an infrared camera that can take detailed pictures of your teeth from a variety of angles, special software that can be used to design a dental crown that has been fully personalized for your specific needs, and a milling unit that can carve a restoration out of a block of porcelain.
Before doing anything else, we will need to examine your tooth, evaluate how severe the damage is, and determine whether you’re a candidate for a CEREC same-day crown. If you are, we can move forward with repairing your smile with the following process:
One of the more obvious benefits of getting a CEREC crown instead of a traditional crown is convenience; the process can be completed in just one visit, and you won’t need to worry about wearing an uncomfortable temporary restoration. Furthermore, since CEREC crowns are designed with the help of digital impressions, they tend to fit better on the teeth.
Despite being made in less time, CEREC crowns are just as reliable as traditional crowns. And since they’re made out of porcelain, they can be made to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile, meaning the average casual observer won’t be able to tell that you have had dental work done.
