No wait! No Mess! Just A Same-Day Cerec Crown!
Usually, one of the biggest hassles with dental crowns is how long the procedure takes from start to finish. After the nasty gooey impressions, you still have to come back a week or two later to get your crown put on. Thanks to Cerec technology, this is the old way of getting dental crowns. In fact, using Cerec we can have you on your way with a crown in just one visit! The best part? No wait and no impressions!
How Does Cerec Technology Work?
This may sound similar to something off of The Jetson’s, but it’s 100% real and incredibly efficient. With Cerec technology, we are able to scan your teeth with a specialized device, allowing the doctor to custom design your crown digitally. The doctor uses a wand-like tool that captures a 3-D image of your teeth. Which is exactly why there are no gross, messy impressions needed! The 3-D image is uploaded to the state-of-the-art Cerec machine, allowing the doctor to make changes to the tooth digitally. Think of the software as an advanced 3-D version of Adobe Photoshop, allowing your doctor to edit the shape of the tooth and even color match it to the rest of your smile. I bet you didn’t know that your dentist is actually 3-D digital artists!
Digital Designs to Custom Crowns
Now it’s time for the real dental magic! The patient’s custom crown design is sent to our in-house state-of-the-art Cerec machine, called a Milling Unit. This machine meticulously shapes your crown based off of the doctor’s digital design, with more precision and detail than ever before. The best thing about Cerec technology is the time it takes from start to finish. Depending on the complexity, the Cerec machine can produce a finished crown in about ten minutes. This means the several week process of getting a new custom crown can be done in just one day. Cerec’s ground-breaking technology offers patients a time-efficient and reliable treatment without impressions, extra visits or temporary crowns.
Who Qualifies For Cerec Treatment?
Patients who are in need of crowns aren’t the only ones who qualify! Cerec technology can also be used to also create onlays, inlays, veneers and even small bridges. Which means that more of our patients will qualify to reap the benefits of this incredible state-of-the-art one-day treatment. Cerec is great for patients who want to replace toxic mercury fillings with metal-free restorations and for those who want to preserve tooth structure as much as possible. This quick procedure offers a priceless advantage for patients with restricted appointment availability and time constraints.
