Brookhaven CEREC Same Day Crowns
Do you have a tooth that needs repair with a dental crown? Brookhaven residents have a reliable source for excellence in dentistry and same day CEREC dental crowns at Pure Dental Health. In as little as one visit, your tooth can be repaired and a beautiful new dental crown can be in place, saving you time and discomfort compared to the traditional dental crown procedure.
Dental crowns provide a durable, protective covering for teeth that have become weakened by damage, decay or extensive dental treatments. They can also be used to secure a dental bridge to replace missing teeth or to cover cosmetic dental flaws. While crowns have been used for decades to repair teeth, the process can be tedious for the patient. Traditionally, a mold must be made of the tooth which is then sent to a dental lab to create the crown. This can take a week or longer and requires multiple visits to the dentist. In the meantime, the patient must be fitted for and wear a temporary crown until the permanent one arrives.
With CEREC technology, ceramic dental crowns can be made in-office during one visit. No messy or annoying molds are needed; there is also no need for a temporary crown. This speeds up the process, saving time and discomfort for the patient.
White Dental Crowns in One Day
The CEREC system we use at Pure Dental Health relies on advanced technology to improve the dental crown process. Instead of creating a mold of the tooth, a digital scan of the tooth creates a 3D image that can be utilized by the specialized milling equipment. Once a quick, painless scan is done, the image is sent to the on-site milling machine which creates a ceramic dental crown. In about one hour, the new crown is finished and ready to be fitted. The crown is put in place, adjustments are made, then it is bonded onto the tooth and polished.
For our patients, CEREC crowns offer several advantages. Saving time and trips to our office are the biggest benefit. Also, many people dislike the mold process that is required for traditional crowns – a silicone substance must be allowed to harden around the tooth while the mold is held in the mouth. With CEREC imaging, this process can be skipped, much to the delight of our patients. CEREC crowns are color-matched to your teeth for a beautiful, natural look that has the same durability and function as a traditionally milled crown.
