Did you know that we can create a custom-made dental crown in a single visit? You no longer have to worry about multiple visits and time off from work to address issues with your smile. Instead, we can use CAD/CAM technology to offer a custom solution in one sitting!
Preparing Your Tooth
We can use a dental crown to return your tooth to optimal health, function, and appearance. We first need to prepare your tooth, which makes room for the new restoration. We will gently remove a small amount of outer structure. We then take digital impressions, which involve gathering a series of detailed images of the tooth that will be used to design and create a new restoration.
The CEREC System
We use the images to create a 3D model of the tooth, which allows us to design the dental crown. We upload the information into the CEREC machine, which then mills the tooth from a solid block of ceramic. The ceramic material mimics the translucent nature of tooth enamel and can be shaded to better blend with your smile. Your new restoration will be completely natural looking!
Placing Your New Crown
Once the restoration is complete, we check the fit and if needed, make any necessary changes. We then attach the completed restoration using a powerful bonding agent. Once in place, we can sue a crown to repair chipped, broken, or cracked teeth. We can complete a root canal procedure or address decayed teeth. We can correct cosmetic issues or lengthen worn down teeth. If you have a missing tooth, we can anchor a dental bridge in place to restore single tooth dental implant. If you have any questions about the CEREC process, or if you feel your smile needs a same day crown, then contact our team today.
