If you need dental crowns and must choose between the traditional method and one visit crowns, choose the latter. One visit crowns are, like its name suggests, performed in a single office visit to your dentist. This saves you time, while it allows the dentist to attend to more patients. You get a quality dental restoration without going through the hassle of wearing temporary crowns and scheduling another office visit to get your permanent crowns placed. Our patients just love it! One appointment is all it takes to get your quality dental restoration created and then bonded on your teeth.
CEREC Makes One Visit Crowns Possible
Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC®) is the technology behind one visit crowns. This revolutionary system uses CAD/CAM technology to get your dental crowns done in 1 day. While traditional crowns involve the fabrication of crowns in a separate lab, taking 1 to 2 weeks to complete, CEREC® can manufacture the crowns right inside the dental office. CEREC® is capable of taking your dental impression, designing your restoration, fabricating your crown within minutes, and then bonding your dental crown in place all in one day.
First, the dentist takes a digital impression of your teeth. This image is sent to a computer, which designs your crowns with a high level of precision. The dentist checks the design and makes improvements, only when needed. Once the right design is achieved, the data is fed to a milling unit that will fabricate the dental crown within minutes.
Once the crowns are fabricated, the dentist proceeds by bonding the restoration on your tooth. No temporaries are necessary and no separate appointments are needed. All the steps are completed in 1 day. You walk out of the dentist’s office with your permanent restoration in place!
CEREC® Is Also Used for Inlays, Onlays, and Veneers
The CEREC® technology is not just limited to dental crowns, as it can also provide you with one visit inlays, onlays and veneers. This system has helped dentists save time while it provides patients with improved convenience. Imagine waiting for another 1 to 2 weeks to get your dental restoration done by a dental lab. With CEREC®, all you need to do is wait for a short while in the dentist’s office and get your restoration placed in the same day your dental impressions were taken. CEREC® is the perfect embodiment of contemporary dental care.
