Patients who need a dental crown are often discouraged by the fact that they’ll need to visit the dentist two or more times to have the procedure completed. We’ve got good news for anyone requiring this restorative treatment. Exceptional Dentistry has invested in a CEREC machine, which makes same-day dentistry possible! That’s right. You can come in with a damaged, decayed, and aching tooth, and leave the very same day with a fully restored smile, all thanks to CEREC technology.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, and it’s a method that allows your dentist to plan for, create, and place a dental crown, all under the same roof and in just one appointment.
CEREC relies on 3D images of your tooth and all surrounding oral structures taken using CAD/CAM technology. With this information, the machine mills a high-quality, beautiful porcelain crown in a little less than an hour. After its creation, Dr. Rose will check the crown to make sure it fits, feels, and looks just the way it should before bonding it securely onto the damaged tooth. When your dental crown is completed in just one visit to your dentist’s office, you don’t have to worry about taking unnecessary sick time off work -- and you avoid having to wear a fragile temporary device, too.
