If you have undergone restorative dental care in the past, you may believe you are familiar with the process of receiving a dental crown. You might recall having your dentist take your measurements, and prepare your tooth, during an initial visit, followed by a waiting period where a dental lab produced your crown. What you should know is that CEREC technology makes the process simpler – instead of two appointments, you will only need to plan for one visit. The technology on hand allows your dentist to produce your restoration in the office, and place it on your problem tooth at that same appointment.
CEREC Technology Can Produce Life-Like, Durable Crowns
CEREC technology makes it possible to have every step of the crown placement process completed in one location. After taking your tooth’s measurements, your dentist will use those details to create a crown in the office that fits your tooth perfectly. Having your restoration in less time provides you with the full protection your problem tooth needs in less time.
How Can I Avoid Needing Another Dental Crown?
If you are in the process of undergoing restorative dental care, even the best experience is probably something you would prefer not to repeat. Part of your plan for improving your preventive dental care should center on what you do at home. Brushing and flossing are important, and so are the choices you make when it comes to your diet. That being said, if you want to make certain your needs are being met, make sure you also attend regular dental checkups. You may be confident in your smile’s health, but without your dentist’s review and input, you can miss potentially important issues.
