In the past, having a tooth repaired with a crown took a lot of time. First, there was the initial appointment, involving messy putty impressions and placing the temporary. Then you were delayed a week or more while an out-of-town lab cast the permanent crown. Afterwards, a follow-up appointment was necessary for your dentist to place the crown. And if it didn't fit correctly, the entire process started all over again.
Thankfully, modern technology has made it possible to
streamline the process. Instead of a two-week timeframe, in about
one hour you can have your new permanent crown placed in your mouth.
With CEREC computer-aided design and milling, the fit will be
perfect, the crown will be durable, and our stain and glazing
process will match the look of your natural teeth. CEREC enables us
to satisfy patients seeking a long-lasting, aesthetic alternative to
silver or plastic fillings.
The process works like this:
Our patients are thrilled with this time-saving new technique for fitting and inserting crowns. You will be, too!
