Modern advances in technology have developed dentistry beyond what we ever would have thought possible many years ago, and our practice has made it a point to stay current! With these new innovations, dental care treatments and services are faster, more comfortable, and much more accurate.
One of these adaptations we are proud to bring to our office is the CEREC (chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramic) machine, capable of executing the full process of precise design and fabrication of durable dental crowns in just one office appointment. Call today to learn more about CEREC or schedule an appointment with us in Goldsboro, NC to experience the system for yourself!
The CEREC Process
We typically use the CEREC machine for fabricating restorative prosthetic crowns for your smile following a root canal, an implant procedure, or to replace an old damaged crown.
- The process starts by taking a digital impression of your prepared natural tooth.
- This impression is then uploaded into our computer software where the dentist designs the new crown, aided by computer technology.
- Once the design is complete, it is forwarded to the CEREC milling machine where the crown is contoured and carved from a block of tooth-colored deposit.
- We are then able to cement the new crown into position with the entire process complete in just an hour.
Benefits of Same-Day Crowns
Same-day crowns with CEREC technology allow you to leave our office with a fully restored smile. This means:
- Fewer trips to the dentist office
- Less additional costs
- No temporary crowns
Additionally, by utilizing computer technology, the crown is shaped with exact precision to ensure the perfect fit the first time. This ensures you have a durable, beautiful, and comfortable addition to your smile and are back to enjoying life outside the dentist’s chair in no time.
