Getting a crown was always such a time-consuming process. First, you have to go to the dentist for an exam and/or X-rays. If it’s established that you need a crown, you’ll go in for another visit so the dentist can prepare your tooth and create a temporary crown. After your permanent crown is created in an off-site lab, it can be weeks or even months before your permanent crown is ready.
Isn’t there a way you get can get crowns in a day? There is, and it’s called CEREC crowns.
Comfort and Convenience
The biggest advantage of CEREC crowns is that they can be created and placed in a single visit in our office. How is this possible? Well instead of the dentist sending out a request for the permanent crown from the lab, they can actually use a state-of-the-art machine to create a beautiful crown in the comfort of their own office. That means you only have to go in for one visit.
The second biggest advantage of CEREC crowns is that they are usually more comfortable than traditional crowns. Again, this goes back to the dentist having complete control, as your dentist can personalize your crown to ensure it’s a perfect fit. Crowns created in a lab, on the other hand, usually can’t offer this level of precision and accuracy.
Other Advantages of Same-Day Crowns
In addition to comfort and convenience, CEREC crowns have a variety of other advantages over traditional crowns. Here are some of them:
- Your dentist has complete control of the shape, fit and color of the crown.
- They’re made from materials that are just as strong and durable as regular crowns.
- Since there isn’t any metal, risks for compatibility problems are lower.
- The look and function of the crown is astonishingly similar to your natural teeth.
- They use the latest, most innovative technology available today.
Same-day crowns aren’t just comfort and convenient… they’re simply better. If you’d like to know more about them, schedule a consultation with Torrance Dental Arts today.
