With The CEREC Crown, Enjoy Comfort & Beauty Without The Hassle Of A Double Visit
When a tooth is badly broken or deteriorated, a filling typically won’t suffice. In these instances, you’ll need something that will cover the tooth in its entirety – something called a crown. When you need a crown, it’s not exactly something you look forward to, but it’s also not something you can put off.
Here at Legacy Hill Dentistry, we know that your time is valuable and that you don’t always have a schedule that allows for multiple visits to our office. That’s why we’re pleased to now offer CEREC crowns, the one-visit crown.
How Is The CEREC Crown Different?
With traditional crowns, you’ll need to schedule two separate appointments.
- During the initial appointment, the tooth being treated with be shaved down, a mold of the tooth will be made, and a temporary plastic crown will be put into place while you wait for your new crown to arrive from the lab.
- During your second appointment, the new custom ceramic crown will replace the temporary crown.
In the past, this was the only way to do things, but now with the CEREC Crown, we can custom-design your crown while you wait! Using CAD-CAM (Computer-Assisted Design – Computer–Assisted Manufacture), we can create a custom-designed ceramic crown in our office, so that a temporary crown and a second appointment simply aren’t necessary. Not only will this save you time and discomfort, it will ultimately save you money, because no lab fees need to be covered and you’re only paying for one visit, not two.
