Do you hate the idea of getting a crown? Don’t you just love having all the impressions taken and the fact that it will take two visits to get it done? And then you have to wear a temporary between visits, which always wants to come off, forcing you to come back to the dentist once again!
On one of his late night shows, David Letterman talked about going to the dentist and jokingly asked, “Why can’t they get a crown done in one visit?”
Well, the answer is………….we can!!
Utilizing CEREC technology, we are able to fabricate crowns in as little as one hour. There are no impressions, no temporaries, and no second visit! So how does it work?
After you have received anesthesia and the tooth has been reduced to the necessary amount, we will take 3d images of your teeth. That’s right, no impressions! Cerec technology will even display your images if you want to see your custom fit crown made specifically for you. We will then upload these photos and design a restoration that custom fits your mouth. Once completed, we are then able to use our milling machine and cut your crown out of a ceramic block. You can even watch your crown or bridge being made if you want in our lab. Once completed, we will bond the restoration in place.
Almost all of this is done outside the mouth. I am working on you for the first 5 minutes or so, and then the last 5 minutes. Everything in between those times is done outside the mouth!!
In as little as an hour, you can have a custom crown fabricated for you. There are no follow-up appointments (you don’t have to get numbed again), no impressions, and no temporaries!
In one visit, we can have your tooth restored back to its natural beauty and have you smiling with confidence!
