Have you ever had to have a crown? If so, you have already experienced the traditional process for getting a crown. If not, you have probably heard of the cost and how long it takes. Today, there is a new technology from CEREC that allows crowns to be completed in just one day. Here are some of the benefits and advantages of CEREC technology.
Preparation and Crown Same Day
With CEREC, we can prepare the tooth for the crown and place the crown on the same day. This means that you only have to have one appointment, and you don’t have to worry about scheduling more than one day off from work.
No Temporary Crown
By getting your preparation and crown in one day, you don’t have to pay for an additional temporary crown to use while you are waiting for the permanent one. Temporary crowns are fragile and not very protective, so when you have one you are very limited in what you can eat until you get the permanent crown. With CEREC crowns, you don’t have to go through this part of the process.
With CEREC, there are no physical dental impressions necessary to create your crown. Instead, CEREC uses digital impressions, which is similar to a dental x-ray. These digital impressions are then used to cut the crown from the material right here in our office.
If you are needing a crown, why not get it done all in one day? Contact us today for more information or to schedule your appointment.
