Feeling that telltale sensitivity when you eat hot, cold or sweet foods and beverages? That little sensation may be an indicator that your tooth has decay and needs a dental crown. Receiving the news that you need a crown is never ideal. It’s a long process that requires at least two lengthy appointments, maybe even more if there are problems with your temporary crown, which has the potential to break or fall out before your permanent crown is completed at the dental lab. But wait! One-visit crowns in Clarksville have revolutionized the crown process. CEREC technology allows your dental provider to complete your crown from start to finish in only one short visit.
What is CEREC Technology?
CEREC is a state-of-the-art milling system that utilizes 3D imaging to create a customized high quality porcelain crown in approximately 90 minutes. Your dentist in Clarksville will scan a 3D image of your tooth, which is sent directly to the CEREC milling system located in your provider’s office. CEREC then uses high quality porcelain to mill your new crown.
Your restoration is completed while you wait in the comfort of our office, and you’ll leave after your appointment with a finished crown that you can rely on for years to come. Your crown will be custom blended so it matches your existing teeth and naturally completes your smile.
What are the Benefits of CEREC Crowns?
CEREC has completely streamlined the crown making process. Patients no longer have to endure messy dental impressions taken in the past since CEREC uses 3D imaging. Patients also don’t have to struggle with temporary crowns that may or may not stay in or function properly, and CEREC crowns are durable and long lasting. What used to take two to four weeks to complete, now takes only a few hours.
