If you’ve ever needed a tooth crowned before, you know that the process can take some time. But now, it’s completely possible to get crowns in a single day.
Yep, you read that right. Thanks to a new technology available that allows you to get crowns in place during a single appointment, you can get crowns in a single day.
But how does it work? And it is as reliable as the “old” method? Let’s take a look.
How does it work?
Essentially, a CEREC machine is an automated laboratory that can machine crowns based off a 3D scan of your teeth. A dentist will set the machine to take a scan of your teeth during a regular crown consultation appointment. The machine is then set to making the crown while Dr. Ray Wallace prepares your tooth for the crown.
After that, you just get to enjoy the benefits of a new and improved smile.
Do they last?
These crowns are made from the same material as one you’d have to wait weeks for. We see a lot of issues with crowns here at Ford Avenue Family Dentistry in Richmond Hill, Georgia. Ones made in a CEREC machine are just as reliable as you could hope for.
If you’re ready to restore your teeth to their former function and beauty, then CEREC crowns may be the right choice for you. If you want to know more, or want to schedule an appointment, call us today at 912-756-2936.
