CEREC One-Visit Dental Crowns
Single Visit Dental Restorations
How are we able to take impressions, create crowns, and place them in a single visit? CEREC one-visit crowns rely on CAD/CAM technology, which allows us to create these dental restorations in the office while you wait. CEREC one-visit crowns offer many advantages over traditional metal crowns, including:
- Convenience of a single appointment
- No need for a temporary crown
- Greater precision and accuracy when creating dental restorations
- Easier for patients to care for after placement
CEREC one-visit crowns offer a conservative option for dental crowns and require less modification to the remaining healthy tooth structure. As a holistic dentist, Dr. Langston prefers to go with conservative treatment options whenever possible, believing that maintaining existing healthy structures leads to maximum stability and strength.
How CEREC Works
A computer takes extremely precise digital “impressions'' of your tooth, sends this information to an in-house milling unit, and the milling unit turns a block of porcelain into a crown using the information. Because the crown is designed with computer technology, this leads to better accuracy for an improved post-placement fit. And, of course, all-porcelain crowns are preferred over metal crowns for their aesthetics. With CEREC one-visit crowns, you get a great look and a great fit in a convenient time frame.
