Dental Crowns in Just One Visit!
Dental crowns, sometimes called caps, cover damaged teeth to restore their appearance and function. Crowns are also often used to cover dental implants, attach dental bridges, or even as a preventive measure to protect a tooth that is likely to fail.
In the past, receiving a dental crown has required temperamental temporaries and multiple visits over the course of many weeks. At Dublin Smiles, those days are long gone! We're proud to offer CEREC® technology that allows our patients to receive custom dental crowns in one easy visit!
How Does CEREC® Work?
Our office is equipped with a CEREC® (Chairside Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics) machine that allows us to create custom crowns using a strong tooth-colored ceramic. Our CEREC system also features a unique camera that takes digital images of your tooth. As a next step, we use CEREC software to create a digital version of the crown based on the images of your natural tooth. Our CEREC machine then mills an exact match of the digital crown right here in our office! The computer-aided manufacturing is extremely precise, which means you'll enjoy a terrific fit when we bond the new restoration to the tooth. Keep in mind, this entire process happens in a single, convenient visit. You'll never need to worry about impressions or temporary crowns again!
