Same-Day Crowns with CEREC
Today’s technology is changing our everyday lives—and that extends even to dentistry. Cutting-edge innovations lead to less time in the dental chair, plus more comfortable procedures and more satisfying results. One such breakthrough instrument is the CEREC milling unit. With CEREC, Dr. Alexander can quickly restore damaged or decayed teeth with a custom-made crown in just a single visit. Compare this with treatment using a traditional crown, which requires at least two appointments. Instead of visiting us multiple times, you can come in and have a brand new crown milled for you while you rest comfortably in our office.
How Does CEREC Work?
CEREC combines a special camera, a computer, and a milling machine in one instrument. During your appointment, Dr. Alexander will use the CEREC camera to capture a detailed and accurate picture of your tooth. Then this image is transferred to a computer screen, where we will design your new restoration. Once it’s ready, the CEREC machine will mill it and Dr. Alexander will bond the finished product to the surface of your old tooth. The whole process takes about one hour.
The Benefits of CEREC
With CEREC, you don’t need to see Dr. Alexander for multiple visits. Instead, we can craft your new crown in-office. What’s more, with a new crown bonded to your tooth, you can enjoy improved function, strength, and appearance. CEREC crowns are milled from high-quality dental porcelain, with two decades of clinical research to support the technology. Once in place, you can look forward to enjoying your crown for years to come.
