3 Benefits of CEREC Same-Day CrownsSeptember 1st, 2020
Traditional dentistry methods required multiple visits to complete a crown, and it was inconvenient for the patient to visit the dental office for several dental appointments. We are always striving to provide the best dental services available to make your visit easy and comfortable, and one of the services that we offer is a CEREC same-day crown treatment.
How Does CEREC work?
The same-day crown method is just like it sounds: you can have a crown made and placed on your tooth within the same day. Previously, it was necessary to shape the tooth to prepare it for the placement of the crown. Then a mold was made and sent into the dental lab, and then the crown was sent back so that it could be placed within the patient’s mouth.
Now, the tooth can be shaped and then digitally scanned. The digital information works within a machine to create a crown within a matter of minutes right here in our Bridgeport dental office. So, you just sit back and relax in the dental chair until the crown is ready to go. Then, the crown can be secured in your mouth immediately, making it possible to have the tooth repair completed within the same day.
Why You Need Same Day Crowns
There are several benefits to same-day services for your dental crowns. Here are a few of the reasons our patients enjoy this service:
- Convenience: Instead of visiting the dentist for multiple appointments, you can get it done within a few hours. There is no need to send a mold to the lab, because the crown can be created in our office.
- Accuracy: Since a digital scan is used to create the shape of the crown, the tooth can be fitted with exactness. A crown created in this manner is more accurate and has a better fit compared with other methods.
- Durability: Since the crown is created with long-lasting materials, you can rest assured that you will enjoy the durability of a tooth that will last for many years.
