In the past having a dental crown meant at least two visits to Apple Dental, plus the need for a temporary crown. This is why we are so pleased to offer our patients same-day crowns.
What are CEREC Crowns?
CEREC crowns are made from solid blocks of porcelain using the very latest CADCAM technology. These high-quality crowns are precision-made, providing an extremely accurate fit. To make a CEREC crown, our dentist will prepare your tooth in the normal way, but from then on the procedure is rather different. Instead of taking a dental impression, your tooth will be scanned using a small camera. Our dentist will use the scan to design and make your crown while you wait. Once the crown has been made, it will be hand-finished before being tried in and fitted, so you will leave with your new restoration firmly cemented in place.
What are the Advantages of CEREC Crowns?
CEREC crowns are strong and beautiful, offering maximum protection for your tooth. There is no need for a temporary tooth and no need for a dental impression. Patients who have a strong gag reflex will find the process much more comfortable. It can be an ideal solution when you need a new crown in a hurry, perhaps for a special event or a holiday.
