Now you can get your new dental restoration in just one visit.
For those who’ve gotten dental crowns in the past, they can tell you that getting this restoration requires multiple trips to the dentist’s office. Of course, we know that everyone leads busy lives and sometimes getting to see the dentist once is a challenge, let alone two or three times in a short period of time. If you require a dental crown to protect or support a damaged or weakened tooth, our Kennesaw and Woodstock, GA, dentists are here to tell you how you could get your new restoration in just one visit.
That’s right, now you can come into our office and have a crown designed and fabricated right here on the premises while you wait. You’ll walk out the same day with a brand new crown. Of course, some people are skeptical, believing that these dental crowns might not be the same caliber as traditional crowns; however, our Kennesaw and Woodstock general dentists take digital images of your teeth to get more precise measurements, which results in a crown that offers a superior fit. These restorations are also made from porcelain, which is stain-resistant and extremely durable.
Getting CEREC crowns means that you can protect your tooth from further damage and get back that beautiful smile without having to wait. Once dental images are taken, these images are put onto the computer where special CAD/CAM software is used to design a perfectly fitted crown based on the exact measurements. Once the crown has been designed, we will transfer these measurements to the milling station, where we will choose a porcelain block that most closely matches the shade of the tooth and then place the block into the machine so that it can carve out your new restoration.
Once the restoration is complete, we will go ahead and check the fit before cementing it in place over the tooth to restore resilience and functionality back into the tooth. CEREC crowns are great because they can save people a lot of time, stress, and hassle. Plus, you’ll give your smile the protection it needs to prevent further issues.
Anyone dealing with a severely malformed or discolored tooth, or a tooth that is weak, worn, or fractured can benefit from same-day crowns; however, if you are dealing with a fracture that lies under the gums, CEREC crowns will not be able to restore your tooth.
