CEREC 1-Day Crowns
Do you need a crown on your tooth? Traditionally, this meant having to visit your dentist multiple times.
During the first visit, your dentist would prepare the tooth needing a crown, take an impression of it, and fit a temporary crown on top. The impression would then be sent to a lab, where a permanent crown is made. At your second visit, that permanent crown is installed in place of the temporary crown. Using a temporary crown was necessary to prevent your teeth from shifting out of place before the permanent crown could be put in place. It also protected the tooth and helped prevent infection and decay.
This is no longer the only way crowns are installed. There is technology available that allows dentists to provide a permanent crown in a single visit, which can be a real time- and cost-saver for patients and dentists alike.
At Dedicated Dental, we’re proud to offer 1-day crowns to our patients in Henderson, Nevada.
Introducing: CEREC® for 1-Day Crowns
A CEREC machine is basically a fully digital dental lab. It is located on premises at Dedicated Dental, so that any lab work – such as the design and creation of a crown to precisely fit your tooth – can be done during a single visit to the dentist.
During your exam at Dedicated Dental, your dentist will take X-rays and high-resolution photographs of your mouth and teeth using the CEREC machine. CEREC stands for “chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics.”
The CEREC machine uses computer-aided design (CAD) technology to create a lifelike, 3D model of your mouth and teeth, with the area requiring dental work highlighted. The machine then creates a crown out of ceramic block to precisely match the highlighted area. The 3D technology used by the CEREC machine makes it possible to create the most accurate and detailed replica of your teeth.
Best of all: The entire process takes just 20 minutes.
