CEREC (single visit) crowns…

It amazes us that people still sound surprised when we tell them that we can get them in for their crown and complete it in one single visit.  We have been doing this for years. Our new patients oftentimes find this to be very surprising and they really like it. They don’t have to take multiple days off of work or school. They can come in and have their treatment done and be on their way in the matter of a couple of hours.

CEREC technology is fascinating! Here is how it all works. You come into the office needing a crown. Dr. Openshaw uses CAD/CAM technology to take a digital impression of the tooth needing restoration. He then designs the crown to fit perfectly into your mouth. The crown is then milled on the CEREC machine. You can actually watch your new crown being made. This process takes about 7 minutes. The crown is prepped and then permanently bonded to the existing tooth structure that remains and has been prepped for crown placement. A final x-ray is taken and Voila! you are ready to go! The whole process takes about 2 hours.
