Crowns are one of the most versatile dental restorations available. They can be used to address virtually any cosmetic or general dentistry problem, from cracks and stains, to root canals and missing teeth. But even with the wide availability and affordability of dental crowns, many people continue to live with fixable dental problems for a number of reasons, such as concerns over costs or a simple lack of time. Dr. Chris Houser, a dentist at Heritage Hunt Dental in Gainesville, VA, offers CEREC Same Day Crowns as a fast and equally effective method for strengthening and improving a damaged smile.
CEREC Same Day Crowns in Gainesville, VA
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) merges traditional dental and digital technology to create restorations in a single trip to the dentist. First Dr. Houser takes a picture of the damaged tooth, which is then uploaded into a computer to create a rendering of the crown using CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) software. The computer-assisted rendering allows Dr. Houser to match the design to your natural tooth color and texture for subtle and realistic looking results.
Once the computer image is complete, it is used to produce the ceramic material for the restoration, which is then bonded to the tooth in the final step. CEREC eliminates the need to wait and return for a second dental visit while a lab produces the crown. The entire process is completed in a single, hour long appointment. CEREC same day crowns are ideal for anyone looking for an affordable, effective, discreet, cosmetically attractive and fast option for fixing a damaged tooth. Busy adults can walk out of Dr. Houser's office with a CEREC restoration in the span of a lunch break.
