Druid Hills CEREC Same Day Crowns
You don’t have to wait a week or longer to get a dental crown. If you live in Druid Hills, you have a source nearby for same day ceramic dental crowns. Pure Dental Health in Buckhead offers one-visit CEREC dental crowns for your convenience. No molds or temporary crowns are needed – you can walk out the same day with your new dental crown in place.
There are several reasons you may need a dental crown. If a tooth has undergone extensive dental treatments for decay or needed a root canal, the structure can be weakened. A crown is the best option to protect the tooth from further damage when too much material has been removed. Dental crowns are also used for cosmetic procedures to cover up dental flaws or to create a dental bridge to fill gaps of missing teeth. However, the traditional process of creating a crown can take a week or longer and requires some discomfort for the patient.
Crowns are usually made from metal, ceramics or a combination of both, from a mold of the tooth. To create the mold, the patient must endure holding the mold in their mouth until the silicone molding substance sets. This is usually sent off to a dental lab to create the crown, whether it is metal or ceramic, taking a week or longer. During the waiting period, the patient must be fitted for and wear a temporary crown. With CEREC technology, this process is streamlined and completed in one visit to our office.
Advanced Dental Technology for One-Visit Crowns
CEREC makes the process of designing, creating and fitting a new dental crown quick and painless. Instead of creating a mold of the tooth, advanced imaging equipment is used to create a 3D digital image of the tooth. This only takes a few minutes and is far less uncomfortable than the traditional mold process. Once the image is secured, it is sent to our on-site CEREC milling equipment. It only takes about one hour for the new ceramic crown to be milled and ready for placement.
While the crown is being made, you can enjoy the many amenities we have available for you at Pure Dental Health. There is a free beverage station and internet bar, along with blankets, pillows, flat screen TVs and noise-canceling headphones in your treatment room. You can sit back and relax while we prepare your new crown – your comfort is important to us whenever you visit our office.
Once the crown is finished, our dental team will put it in place to ensure it is a perfect fit. After any needed adjustments, the new crown will be bonded onto your tooth and polished. Like traditional crowns, CEREC crowns are built to last for many years. We color-match the ceramic to your smile so your new crown looks and feels like a natural tooth.
