One Visit Dental Crowns Possible with CEREC
Dental crowns have long been a trusted solution for restoring damaged or decayed teeth. They’re thin, tooth-shaped caps that completely surround the problem tooth, strengthening it and protecting it from further damage.
Traditionally, the procedure for dental crowns has taken two visits to the dentist and about two weeks to complete. The time in between appointments was necessary for the creation of the crown in a special laboratory. But CEREC, or chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics, allows your Pasadena dentist to plan for, create and place your new crown in just one visit, all under one roof. That’s convenience everyone can enjoy.
The benefits of CEREC crowns go beyond their efficiency. Patients who have one visit crowns from their 77504 dentist also enjoy the following advantages of this state-of-the-art method.
- Because CEREC uses digital imaging, you can say goodbye to those messy, uncomfortable impressions. It’s a quick, comfortable process that gives us a more accurate image of your oral structures (and that means better results overall).
- Having the procedure completed in just one visit eliminates the need for a temporary device, which can often be uncomfortable and is easily discolored.
- CEREC crowns are easily matched to the shade of your surrounding teeth.
- CEREC keeps more of your natural structure intact.
Caring For Your New Crown
Once you’ve had your new crown placed, maintain excellent oral hygiene habits to keep it (and the rest of your smile) as healthy as possible. Good care means brushing for two minutes, twice a day, flossing daily (paying extra attention to the area around your crown) and visiting your dentist as recommended for regular checkups.
