If you’re a busy individual, chances are adding multiple trips to the dentist is the last thing you want to add your calendar.
The good news is getting a crown doesn’t have to be a complicated, time-consuming procedure. With same-day crowns, you can bypass the waiting game and messy temporary crowns by getting a natural-looking, permanent crown – all in one visit.
For patients needing a more protective treatment than a filling, inlay or onlay, crowns have long been a popular and reliable option. Crowns, also known as dental caps, completely cover a severely damaged or decayed tooth bringing back its functionality and appearance.
The only problem: traditional crowns require two appointments. One to prepare the tooth, take a molded impression and place a temporary crown. And a second visit to remove the temporary crown so a permanent one that was fabricated in a lab can be placed and set.
The CEREC Same-Day Process
The Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEREC, is a revolutionary tool that mills a permanent crown in about an hour. The technology produces durable ceramic crowns in a single dental appointment.
Same-day convenience aside, there are several benefits to CEREC crowns:
- High-tech accuracy
- Natural, tooth-colored crowns
- Metal free
- Preserves healthy tooth material
- Long-lasting results
The procedure is completely comfortable, while allowing you to enjoy your smile without spending more time in the dentist’s chair. Just see for yourself:
