Are you experiencing that painful zing when you eat ice cream or drink cold beverages? How about when you ate that birthday cake? These are the early indicators that your tooth may be in need of a dental crown. Not the best news, right? Getting a crown can be a long process! The good news is that CEREC Houston has completely changed the process of getting a dental crown with same-day crowns.
What is CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
CEREC is revolutionary dental technology that uses 3D imaging to scan a picture of your tooth which is digitally transferred to a state-of-the-art milling machine located in your dentist’s office. CEREC utilizes high quality porcelain to create a dental restoration for your tooth that you’ll be able to trust and rely on. This means that your dentist can prepare your tooth, fabricate your crown, and place your tooth all in one visit, so you’ll leave the same day with a beautiful and functional restoration you’ll be proud of.
What are the Benefits of CEREC?
CEREC has completely streamlined the process of making dental crowns, and it’s now more comfortable and efficient for patients. What used to take 2-4 weeks to complete and involved patients wearing unpredictable temporary crowns, and multiple long appointments, now can be completed in only a few hours in the comfort of the dental office you know and trust.
The process is also more comfortable because your dentist scans an image of your tooth rather than taking the messy, sticky dental impressions. 3D technology ensures a very accurate image of your tooth, which makes the milling process more precise. Your doctor can also make immediate adjustments to your crown, ensuring a better fitting restoration, without having to rely on the dental laboratory to adjust your crown.
