How Many Appointments Will I Need for a New Crown?
At Wells Family Dental Group, we understand that visiting the dentist may not be your favorite place. However, we try our best to make your experience as efficient and comforting as we can, which is why we are proud to offer CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) crowns to our patients! What this means is, if you have a busy summer schedule coming up or busy lifestyle alone, Wells Family Dental Group is the dental office for you to receive a crown treatment!
What is CEREC?
A CEREC crown is a same day crown, which means you won’t have to make multiple visits to the dentist or worry about temporary crown troubles. With the help of our computer aided design (CAD) technology, your crown will be shaped and constructed in one visit. (Yes, just one!) We can honestly say that you’ll be impressed with the precision of this technology and just how wonderful your crown looks by resembling your natural tooth so closely.
How does CEREC work?
First, we’ll use a 3D camera in addition to cutting-edge software that creates your customized dental crown. A ceramic block will be placed in a milling machine, which carefully crafts the ceramic into a beautiful ceramic crown. Once the crown is finished and polished up, one of our dentists will cement the crown to your tooth. You’ll be able to smile and see just how beautiful the crown turned out!
Benefits of CEREC crowns:
CEREC crowns have many benefits, which almost sound too good to be true, but we promise it’s not! Some of the benefits are as follows:
- It only takes one appointment to receive your crown
- It helps to preserve more of your original tooth
- The porcelain is strong and durable
- No uncomfortable dental impression trays are needed
- They look and feel just like your natural teeth
