Our team is happy to walk you through this innovative process and explain the many pros and cons to this method. Learn more about CEREC today!
What Are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?
Laughlin Dental is proud to recommend this innovative procedure, especially for patients with a tight schedule. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration Esthetic Ceramics and can be completed start to finish in just one visit. Although this type of crown cuts out the time cost of the procedure, it doesn’t skimp on quality. CEREC crowns will function and look just like traditional dental crowns.
How Does CEREC Work?
When you choose a CEREC same-day dental crown, we’ll take impressions of your tooth and create the crown all in one visit. With traditional dental crowns, we’d need to send the impressions off to a dental lab, and you’d need to go through a waiting period and a second appointment to place the final crown. At Laughlin Dental, we take care of CEREC same-day crowns in just a few easy steps:
Before we get started, we want to know if CEREC is right for you. We'll evaluate your condition and give you our expert recommendation.
Next, we'll take a digital impression of your tooth or multiple teeth needing a dental crown. Using a 3D color camera, our team can take a digital image of your tooth and send it to our computer.
Now that we have a clear image of your tooth, we use top-of-the-line technology to fabricate your dental crown. Our milling machine takes just around 15 minutes to craft your brand-new dental crown.
Once your custom crown is ready to go, we get to work placing it. We'll ensure the new CEREC dental crown fits comfortably, then we'll glaze and bond it into place. The finished product is a natural looking and feeling tooth.
Why Choose CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?
There’s a plethora of reasons to choose this innovative treatment alternative. CEREC same-day dental crowns come with less pain than the traditional treatment and less tooth sensitivity as a result. The procedure is non-invasive, and you’ll get to keep more of your natural tooth. Plus, CEREC crowns use mercury-free materials and eliminate the need for temporary crowns while you wait on a dental lab. The end result is a restorative treatment that can last up to 15 years and strengthens teeth against cracks, chips, and breaks. There’s hardly a reason to miss out on CEREC same-day crowns!
