If you have a decayed, broken, or weakened tooth, you’re in luck because Wells Family Dentistry now offers same day crowns. While traditional crown treatments can take a few appointments to complete, the cutting-edge CEREC technology allows a customized crown to be designed, milled, and place in just one visit to the dentist.
When you choose CEREC over a traditional crown treatment, you’ll save time, eliminate the discomfort of a temporary crown, and restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function.
Purpose of Crowns
When your tooth develops a cavity, one of our dentists will likely suggest a crown to strengthen and preserve it. A crown can also preserve your underneath roots so that your jaw keeps its strength and health. To maintain a crown, you can simply brush and floss as you normally would and visit the dentist for regular cleanings and checkups. Once a crown is in place, you’ll enjoy a healthier, more attractive smile.
What to Expect with CEREC
On the day of your CEREC appointment, Dr. Wells, Dr. Gladwell, or Dr. Woll will prepare your tooth for treatment and take an impression. Next, they will design your crown and send all crucial information to the milling unit of our office.
Then, you will relax in our office for about 45 minutes while our CEREC machine performs its magic. When your crown is ready, a dentist will place it in your mouth and ensure it fits well. The procedure will then be complete and you can leave our office with a restored smile and no need for a return visit.
