Don't Wait! Repair Damaged Teeth With CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are one of the handiest restoration tools in a dentist’s menu of services. Your dentist can use dental crowns to restore a natural tooth that has become weakened by a large cavity or a chipped or cracked tooth caused by an injury.

Your dentist can use dental crowns with dental bridges to replace missing teeth and they can use them with dental implants as well. They’re also a handy tool to finish off a root canal.

Okay, these are all good things, so what’s the catch? Unfortunately, dental crowns typically take two appointments to complete. It’s hard enough to find time in your schedule to make one appointment, let alone two.

The dentists at Chester Family Dentistry in Warren, Ohio know that your time is valuable, so they equipped their practice with the latest dental technologies, including CEREC same-day crowns. They want to share their insights on this timesaving treatment with you so that you no longer have to wait to repair damaged teeth.

Natural-looking and long-lasting

CEREC same-day crowns are custom made from tooth-colored porcelain that’s carefully chosen to match your neighboring teeth. The porcelain material mimics the look and feel of your natural teeth so closely that after your dentist places them, you may not be able to detect which teeth are your natural teeth and which one is your CEREC crown.

And as if that wasn’t enough, with proper at-home hygiene and keeping up with your regular dental checkups, your CEREC same-day crown can last between five and 15 years.

One and done

Traditional crowns are placed over the course of two appointments. During the first appointment, your dentist preps the tooth that will get the crown and takes an impression of it so that a mold of the crown can be sent to a laboratory which “mills” or carves it offsite.

With CEREC same-day crowns, everything is done right in the Chester Family Dentistry office.

Using 3D technology, they’re able to create a replica of your mouth and take detailed measurements of the tooth that will ultimately receive the crown. Advanced computer-aided design software then takes over using the digital image collected to design the crown. Finally, the information is sent to an on-site fabrication machine that mills the crown from a block of solid ceramic.

Once the crown is made, your dentist places it, checks it for fit, and makes sure your bite is correct. The beauty of this is that from beginning to end this takes place in one appointment that takes about an hour. Can you say one and done?!

No temporary crown worries

The thought of a temporary crown might strike fear in many people. The list of woes starts from, “Will the crown actually stay in my mouth the whole time I’m waiting for the permanent one? Will the temporary one fall out at the most inopportune moment?” And on and on it goes.

With CEREC same-day crowns, you can say goodbye to your temporary crown worries and hello to the most natural and convenient dental treatment there is. Now that’s dental technology everyone can get behind.
