The Advancement of CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
At Gentle Dental Arts, patient quality, care, and wellbeing are a top priority where each dental procedure performed will leave you completely satisfied and confident with your results.
In a world full of rich and sugary foods, tooth decay and cavities are common issues that need to be resolved. Dental crowns are ways to cover parts of a damaged tooth and help mitigate any future decay. They can also help with:
- Restoration of damaged teeth.
- “Cap” the visible damage of a tooth.
- Increase structured stability of your teeth.
- Strengthen recovery efforts to invasive dental procedures.
- Aid indental implants.
Same-day dental crowns are made possible by innovative advancements in technology referred to as CEREC or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. With highly advanced dental imaging software, a computer system can identify, assess, and design the exact crown formation needed to do the job.
This is a brief description of the steps involved during the process:
- A photo of your tooth/teeth is taken by the CEREC camera.
- A model of the tooth/teeth is created using 3D software.
- A crown is generated that matches the exact formation of the tooth’s deficit.
- A dental office attaches the crown, and the process is completed.
With technology like CEREC, patients can get all necessary fillings in as little time as possible, with most procedures completed in entirety throughout one single session.
With CEREC same-day dental crowns, you can be on your way to optimal dental health in a single scheduled appointment.
The First Stage of the Process
After scheduling an in-person consultation at Gentle Dental Arts, you will be advised by a professional to see which treatment option is best for your situation. If a same-day crown makes sense, then it’s an easy process to go from there.
Upon ridding your tooth of any decay, the dentist will then reform it to the optimal condition for crown placement. Using the CEREC system, a camera will then snap photos of everything needed to create a crown that fits perfectly.
Your dentist will select the right color of material to match your other teeth and begin the process of shaping the ceramic matter into the form of a crown. After only a few short moments a computer-generated cap will be ready to install. Using a certain bonding agent, your dentist will fit the crown in the desired location on your tooth and finish the procedure.
The Benefits of the Crown
Due to the quick, reliable, and efficient method of CEREC same-day crowns, there are a variety of benefits that you can experience after going ahead with the procedure.
Time-Saving Is Key
The overall procedure from consultation to installation can all be done within a single scheduled appointment. This means that you can arrive at the dentist's office in need of a crown and leave with a healed mouth in as little as one hour-maybe less. With nothing else needed to be done, you won't have to worry about coming back to check on the progress.
Minimal Recovery Period
The efficiency and noninvasive nature of same-day dental crowns allow you receive the maximum amount of dental service without a drawn-out recovery period. After the installation of the crown, you can walk out feeling brand new again.
There will be no use of anesthetics, injections, or anything else that can be common practice with more invasive procedures.
Good as New
The dental crown’s ceramic nature provides excellent strength to make sure you can eat, drink, or chew anything you normally do. In coordination with specific placement and digitally generated fit, you can rest assured that nothing will go wrong even years after leaving your appointment.
You may be one quick dental appointment away from achieving the normal dental function you haven’t had in years.
