So, you’ve been told that you need a crown. You’re probably aware of the typical process of getting a crown which is rather unpleasant: it starts with a goopy and uncomfortable impression of the tooth, placement of an ugly and uncomfortable temporary, and then having to return for a second appointment to install the permanent crown. You might be pleasantly surprised to learn that it’s now possible to have your permanent dental crowns in under an hour, one appointment. Really!
Dental Crowns in Under an Hour
With the latest in dental technology, it’s now possible to avoid the inconvenient and messy two-step appointment process. With the state of the art CEREC CAD/CAM technology, it really is possible to have your porcelain restorations and dental crowns in under an hour.
Same-Day Dental Crowns – How Does it Work?
CEREC technology works by using an intra-oral camera or scanner to take a digital “impression” of the area being restored (or the entire mouth if you’re receiving an entire smile makeover). This means no more cold and uncomfortable goopy trays to mess with. Those digital impressions are then used to create precise-fitted porcelain crowns and veneers that can be installed the same day.
