You can hardly believe it, but you’re looking at it in the mirror.
You got a new dental crown in one day! How? You went to Atlanta West Dentistry in Marietta, GA.
CEREC same-day crowns are just the latest example ways we are trying to make your dental care even better. Through this advanced technology, you can repair your smile and restore the function of damaged teeth in less time.
That means fewer dental visits for you and faster fixes for problems such as broken, cracked, and decayed teeth. CEREC crowns also can be used for cosmetic purposes to change the appearance of discolored, misshapen, worn-down, or undersized teeth.
To find out what a CEREC crown could do for you or someone you love, call us at 770-744-4619 today!
Get Your New Tooth In One Visit
With most dental crowns, the process takes at least two appointments once you’ve decided to get one.
At another practice, you may start by biting down (and trying not to gag) on an impression tray filled with gooey material. That impression will be used to design a crown so it’s the right size and shape to fit in with the rest of your smile.
That crown, however, is created in a dental lab. It can take days or even weeks to get the crown back. That means you have to schedule another appointment when your crown is ready to have it placed on your tooth.
In the meantime, you’ll wear a temporary crown. While many people have no issues, having a temporary crown does come with some risks. Sometimes bacteria can get under the temporary, creating the potential for decay. You also may notice increased tooth sensitivity
With CEREC, you can simplify the process and get your new tooth in one visit.
First, we use technology to create a digital impression by scanning your mouth with our Omnicam. That means no gagging on that bad-tasting impression material.
Using that digital impression and computer software, we take advantage of CAD/CAM technology to design a crown that just right for you. Our in-house milling machine creates that crown while a member of our team prepares your tooth to receive your crown.
In about 45 minutes, your crown can be created, polished and shaded (to match the color of your natural teeth), and bonded to your tooth, and you’re ready to go. You won’t need to make another appointment or take more time off work or away from your family. As much as we enjoy seeing our patients, we understand that going to the dentist may not be on your list of favorite things to do.
