CEREC crowns can be placed in one appointment, saving your valuable time! Traditionally, a crown requires two separate trips to the dentist. The tooth is prepared and an impression is taken, and while you wait for the crown to be made, a temporary crown is placed. When you return for your second appointment the temporary crown is removed and the laboratory-prepared crown is placed on the tooth.
Not only is a CEREC tooth restoration convenient, it is visually pleasing. Dentists are now able to use a strong ceramic material to mimic the natural look and structure of your tooth. We no longer have to rely upon amalgam silver, gold, or another metal to make a functional crown. The high technology available today provides a beautiful tooth restoration that lasts.
Why Gilbert CEREC Crowns?
CEREC crowns, a technological advance in cosmetic dentistry, are made by a computer while you wait. This eliminates the need for a temporary crown and conveniently saves you that second trip back to the dentist. The crown is designed to fit your tooth exactly by a "Computer assisted design-Computer-assisted manufacture" crown. The most widely known and used company is CEREC. With this innovative method there is no longer a need for the mold to be sent off to the lab. CEREC crowns can be safely and efficiently placed the same day! They are molded, bonded, and polished to fit the unique structure of your individual tooth in approximately 20 minutes.
