Do you know someone who had a horrible crown experience? Just about all of us do, whether we know it or not. It’s so simple to have a bad experience because the system in most offices isn’t very efficient. It takes a long time, and your tooth is in a vulnerable position while you wait for a permanent crown to be created and fitted to your smile. The good news is that your next crown experience doesn’t have to be that way. With the advantage of CEREC (CERamic REConstruction) in our office, we can give you exactly what you need on the same day that you need it!
Less Time – For most crown placements, you will be looking at a window of 2-3 weeks between the time that your dentist prepares your tooth and the time that the permanent crown is placed. CEREC cuts that time down to one single appointment. The time between your tooth preparation and your permanent crown being placed is about the same amount of time it will take you to read an article in your favorite magazine. It doesn’t get any better than that!
Less Risk of Infection – As we mentioned above, most crown procedures take about 2-3 weeks, but that is if everything goes well. In some cases, the crown doesn’t fit properly, and a patient ends up waiting 6-8 weeks! This time is important to consider because the tooth is already prepared, which means that the enamel has been removed from the outsides of the tooth leaving it exposed to bacteria. Dentists place a temporary crown over the tooth to protect it, but those temporary crowns don’t always do the job. With a one day procedure that CEREC provides, you will rest easily knowing that your tooth is not at risk for infection!
More Comfort – Here’s the bottom line, a CEREC crown procedure is more comfortable. You will be comfortable in the office knowing that your entire procedure can be completed during one appointment. You’ll be more comfortable knowing that you don’t have to pay for a second office visit. You’ll be more comfortable knowing that your tooth is getting care quickly and efficiently, which will save you from the risk of an infection and possible root canal. That’s a lot of comfort for a crown procedure!
