If your dentist has recently recommended that you receive a dental crown, you are probably hesitant to schedule the procedure. Your life is busy enough. You do not have the time for one dental appointment, let alone the multiple visits that are needed for dental crowns. What if you could get the restoration that you need in just one day? Now you can with CEREC technology for same-day crowns. You can get a high-quality restoration without the headache or hassle of the traditional method, allowing you to quickly repair damaged teeth with the convenience that you need.
CEREC vs. Traditional Crowns
Dental crowns are commonly used in dentistry to rehabilitate damaged or decayed teeth; however, they can also be used in combination with other procedures, like root canal therapy and dental bridges. In the past, the process to receive one was rather lengthy, requiring multiple appointments and temporary restorations. CEREC technology resolves the disadvantages of the past method to provide a quick and effective solution.
Your tooth is prepared the same as it would be using the previous method but that is where the similarities end. Instead of using a messy foul-tasting material to create your crown, digital impressions are used. The 3D scans are quick and painless, perfect for those who have severely damaged teeth or a strong gag reflex.
These highly detailed images are then sent to CAD/CAM software to create the specifics for your crown. It will be made to match your exact size, shape, and color needs for a precise and accurate fit. This software removes any room for error to ensure that your crown is right the first time.
After the specifics have been set, the information is then sent to an in-office milling machine—not a dental lab. The machine will cut your crown from a single block of all-ceramic material. In about an hour, it will be ready to be bonded to your tooth. There is no need for a temporary restoration or a second appointment.
Choose a Convenient Solution
Although the crown is made in about an hour, rest assured that it will be of the highest quality. It will be made to match your exact specifications while being strong and durable. With the right aftercare, like maintaining your oral hygiene, it can last for an average of 10 years before needing to be replaced.
If you are ready to save time with convenient care, it is time to choose a dentist serving Fuquay Varina for same-day crowns.
