Lots of folks shy away from dental crowns because of how long it takes to make one.
There's just not that kind of time, these days. That's why Atlantic Dental Partners has made a very special investment in a technique that will forever change the way you look at dental crowns.
CEREC – A Crown in One Day
CEREC is a combination of software and machinery that work together to cut weeks out of your crown-making process. This means that a single visit could see you walking out the door with a complete new dental crown.
The system features design and single-appointment processing of beautiful and durable porcelain ceramic restorations.
What can you expect at your appointment?
Dr. Gupta will trim away all damaged parts of the tooth and shape it into a sturdy core. Next, he takes a digital scan of the area with a special camera. No, it's not an x-ray, this camera actually makes a 3-D image of your tooth and sends it to the computer. Here, the dentist can manipulate the image to design your crown.
This design is sent to an on-site milling machine that hews the restoration out of a solid chunk of ceramic. The dentist checks that the crown's color matches your smile, checks the fit, cements it in place, and you're all set!
Why Go with CEREC?
Benefits of a single-day crown include:
- Save on time
- No messy impressions
- Immediately fixing the crown if it doesn't come out right the first time
Schedule a visit with one of our offices to find out if a CEREC same day crown is right for you.
