If you’ve had a crown replaced, fixed or installed in the past, you know the process can be inconvenient. Traditional impressions can be a nuisance, you have to schedule time off work and you’re forced to wear a temporary crown while you wait for your new crown to be manufactured. Then, you need to schedule yet another appointment, take more time off work and come back to visit to have the crown installed.
While we love to see you here at B & D Dental Excellence, and we do our best to make every appointment comfortable, relaxing and pleasant, we also strive to make your dental visits convenient and quick. That’s why CEREC single-visit crowns are part of our Premium Crown Experience.
What Are CEREC Crowns?
As part of our commitment to giving you the best possible dental experience, we invest in the latest technologies to get you back to normal life as quickly as possible. One of those tech innovations is the CEREC single-visit crown system.
CEREC, short for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, does away with the pesky traditional impression system. Instead, using 3D photography, cosmetic dentist Dr. Mark Dunayer will create a 3D image of your mouth. Then, Dr. Dunayer and the CEREC system will create an exact digital model of your new crown. The CEREC machine, located in our office, 3D prints your new crown within the hour, and you’ll leave the office with your new permanent crown installed and fitting perfectly. Pretty cool, right? We think so, too.
How It Works
In the past, to create a new or replacement prosthesis that looked natural and felt comfortable, patients scheduled an appointment to get traditional impressions done. Patients would leave their dental office with a temporary crown. Temporary crowns could have problems. They might not fit right, which made them uncomfortable and might interfere with talking or eating. They might not look attractive. And sometimes they didn’t even last the short time until the new crown was ready. The new crown was made somewhere else, then shipped to the patient’s dental office. They would then schedule a second appointment to have the temporary crown swapped out for the permanent one. On top of all that, most patients required injections in order to get the crown fixed or replaced.
CEREC flips that entire system on its head. The 3D imaging tool communicates directly with our in-office 3D mill, and most of our patients can schedule their CEREC crown appointment over their lunch break. You’ll walk out with a new, perfectly custom-fitted and natural-looking crown after just one hour.
CEREC crowns are made with high quality ceramic material, which is used to make veneers and dental implants, so your new crown will be even more durable than natural teeth, but it won’t stand out from the rest of your mouth. In just three steps, you can get smiling again with our Premium Crown Experience in the Rockland County area.
