Dunwoody CEREC Same Day Crowns
Dental crowns can help repair a damaged tooth or provide a protective covering for weakened or flawed teeth. However, traditional dental crowns can be time-consuming for many patients, requiring at least two long visits to a dental office. If you live in Dunwoody, you can have a dental crown completed in one visit when you come to Pure Dental Health in Buckhead. We offer beautiful, ceramic dental crowns completed the same day using CEREC technology.
The reason traditional dental crowns take more time is most are created in an off-site dental lab. This usually requires a mold to be made of the patient’s tooth and bite that is sent to a lab where the crown is created from metals or ceramics. The mold procedure is messy and can be unpleasant for the patient since the soft mold is placed in the mouth until it sets. It can take several days for the dentist to receive the finished crown back from the lab, during which time the patient must wear a temporary dental crown to protect the exposed tooth.
Since crowns are used in many dental procedures, from repairs and root canals to dental bridges and cosmetic work, this process slows down all these procedures. It takes more time for the dental team, leaving less time for seeing other patients. It is also inconvenient for the patient who needs to spend a few hours at the dentist during at least two appointments. CEREC technology makes this process quick and convenient for everyone.
How Are CEREC Crowns Made?
Our CEREC system utilizes advanced technology and imaging to streamline the dental crown process from a week to just about one hour. No uncomfortable molds need to be made – we create a digital mold through 3D imaging that creates a blueprint of the tooth and bite without any discomfort to the patient. This digital image is relayed to our on-site CEREC milling equipment that makes the customized ceramic crown. While the patient relaxes in one of our comfy treatment rooms, maybe watching a show on the flat screen TV with a warm blanket and pillow, we make their new crown.
Once the crown is finished, it can be fitted and permanently bonded into place the same day. This is a vast improvement to the traditional method, saving time for us and our patients. The CEREC dental crowns are tooth-colored and look natural – they also are durable and can last for many years like traditional crowns. The only difference is that they can be made the same day without the mess and unpleasantness of a silicone or other type of mold.
