CEREC Single Visit Crowns
If you have ever had a crown placed, you know the process can be time-consuming. Sitting for impressions, wearing a temporary crown, multiple visits, and injections – who has the time?
At Tysons Dentistry, we know that your time is valuable, so we always stay current with new dental technology that makes your visits more productive, efficient, and comfortable. That is why we have chosen to invest in state-of-the-art CEREC crown technology for our patients.
CEREC Single Visit Restoration
Dental crowns are one of the most valuable restorative services we offer. There are several cases where we may recommend a crown:
- A tooth is too damaged to be repaired with a filling.
- We have to protect your tooth after root canal treatment.
- You had an implant placed and need a crown to restore function.
- You are unhappy with the shape, size, or discoloration of your teeth.
CEREC’s digital technology enables us to design and produce a strong, long-lasting and natural appearance crown for you in just one visit. With CEREC, you don’t have to deal with messy impressions, a temporary crown, multiple visits, and waiting around.
The CEREC Process
Creating a new crown with CEREC is actually a fascinating process. Once we have agreed that a new crown is the right solution for you, we start by preparing your tooth just as we would for a traditional crown. But that’s where the similarity ends!
Next, our doctors will take precise 3D images of your teeth to create a digital impression – no more bulky trays filled with messy impression material! The information is then sent to a specialized computer program that designs a virtual model of your new crown.
These specifications are shared with a milling machine in our office that fabricates your new crown from a block of tooth-colored ceramic, bruxzir, etc. While you wait for your new crown, you can sit back and relax with your favorite music or TV show.
When your crown is finished, we will check it for fit, make sure it sits naturally along your gum line, then polish it and cement it in place. You will leave our office with a new crown that blends beautifully with your smile and restores function.
Are You a Candidate for CEREC Crowns?
With CEREC same-day crown, we can offer highly esthetic crowns, but if appearance is the highest priority, our doctors may decide that a traditional crown will provide better esthetics for you.
With state-of-the-art CEREC technology, now we can offer same day (chairside) restoration such as:
- Implant crowns
- Inlays and onlays
- Porcelain veneers
