When you are looking to get a ceramic crown, you may have heard about the required multi-appointment process. As dental technologies continue to evolve and new treatments are introduced, dental crowns can now be placed within a single appointment. CEREC same-day dental crowns are being used by more dentists than ever before, including Dr. Olivia Hart at Virginia Biological Dentistry in Glen Allen, Virginia. CEREC allows dentists to treat patients quicker than any other available dental restoration. If you have never heard of this technology, you may not realize how monumental it is. What follows will be a look into the technology of CEREC and how it works, and what it can do for you. CEREC utilizes advanced technology, including the CEREC CNC milling system.
At Virginia Biological Dentistry, Dr. Hart can provide a natural, tooth-colored dental crown to fit her patients’ dental needs. The best part of CEREC is that the entire process can often be completed within a single hour. There is no need for multiple appointments, physical impressions, temporary crowns, or waiting several weeks for your crown to be completed. Dr. Hart can image, fit, and place a CEREC same-day crown within a single visit. This is compared to a two to three-appointment process required with traditional dental crowns. And do not worry! Just because CEREC same-day crowns can be crafted within a single visit does not mean that durability or strength has been sacrificed. CEREC same-day crowns are just as strong and durable and provide the same reinforcement as traditional restorations.
It all comes down to the CEREC milling system. This system utilizes computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM). Digital images are taken of your tooth, which are then sent into the design system. Once the image has been sent into the CAD/CAM machine, your restoration will be created while you patiently wait in the dental chair. This is done quickly, and within a single visit, you will have your new dental crown in place so you can resume your day at the office, with friends, or with family. The CEREC system utilizes unbeatable technology, producing a game-changer in how dental crowns are manufactured and placed.
