CEREC Same Day Crowns
Winston-Salem & Greensboro, NC
Crowns are a fantastic way to save a tooth that is damaged. The damage could be because of tooth decay, or it could be because the tooth was broken or otherwise damaged. There are several different things that we can do here at Eric J. Sadler, DDS & Associates when there is damage to a tooth. Crowns are used for extensive damage because the tooth will be covered, but we will not have to extract the tooth.
The reason why some people do not want a crown is because of the amount of time it takes to receive one. With a traditional crown, you will arrive at the office, and we will take a mold of the tooth. We will also prepare the tooth at the same time, and give you a temporary crown. You will then need to return to our office when the permanent crown is ready. If you do not have time for that, there is a newer solution. It is known as CEREC, and it is helping people to have a new crown in just one day.
What Is CEREC? How Can It Be Beneficial?
With CEREC, you will receive your new crown in one day. It will save both of us time, and you will be happy with the results.
A CEREC crown is made here. The beginning of the process is the same. You will come into our office, and we will make a mold of your tooth. We will also shape the tooth so that it will be able to be capped, or crowned. Instead of sending the mold out to have the crown created elsewhere, we will do it ourselves. Once it is ready, you will come back into the chair, and we will apply the crown and bond it to your tooth. That is all that there is to it.
One of the main benefits of having a CEREC crown is obvious. It will save you time. Not only do you come in one time instead of two, but you also will not have days or weeks of trying to get by with a temporary crown.
Speaking of the temporary crown, you will not need one, which is another benefit of CEREC. Some people have a hard time with the temporary crown. They find it uncomfortable since it was not made to fit the tooth properly. A temporary crown can also get loose sometimes, which would mean another trip back to our office.
A CEREC crown also looks great. It is made out of porcelain, which means that it will perfectly match your teeth. CEREC is also used for fillings sometimes as well.
A crown is a great way to save a tooth and help you to be able to eat and speak like normal. With CEREC, you will not have to wait to receive that crown. If you have a tooth that is damaged, this could be the solution. Here at [[CLIENTEX:PracticeName] ] ], we would like to tell you all of the possibilities. Call us at (336) 331-5271.
