CEREC Same Day Crowns
At our dental practice, we understand that your oral health and wellness is important to you. But we also understand that your time and energy is equally important in today’s fast-paced society. Our office aims to provide new and existing patients with dental crowns and other restorations in the shortest time possible. This is why we have invested in amazing equipment that allows us to achieve laboratory-quality restorations in just one appointment. We have access to the CEREC dental device.
CEREC is a special device used to mill out restorations right in our office during a same-day appointment. This is done using CAD/Cam technology, also known as “computer-aided design” and “computer-aided manufacturing.” This technology allows us to fabricate a dental crown in approximately 20 minutes while patients wait.
Instead of utilizing a temporary crown that is worn for weeks while waiting for a permanent restoration, patients can rest in the dental chair while we complete the crown from start to finish. The tooth is prepared, scanned by the computer, and the restoration is made immediately. The crown is bonded in place before the anesthesia wears off, and patients can leave the dental office without having to make a future appointment for finishing their procedure.
