One trip to the Suwanee dentist is all you need to get a superior dental crown.
In the past a trip to your Suwanee dentist to get a traditional crown usually required two separate visits: one to prepare the tooth and the second to actually permanently place the dental crown; however, now we are making it a bit easier to get your dental crowns in one visit.
What are CEREC crowns?
CEREC crowns look the same as regular dental crowns the only difference is that the crown can be designed, made and placed in only one dental visit using CAD/CAM technology.
What are CEREC crowns used to treat?
A CEREC crown can be used for the same issues that a regular dental crown can including covering a tooth that has been damaged or weakened by direct trauma, infection, decay or flawed dental work. Same-day crowns can also protect a cracked or chipped tooth from further damage. The only time a CEREC crown isn’t recommended is when the tooth has sustained damage that is below the gumline.
What does getting CEREC crowns from my Suwanee dentist entail?
In the past we needed to use a putty-like substance to take impressions of your tooth, but now with this unique technology we only need to use a small camera to snap precise photos of your smile to help create your crown.
These photos will then be uploaded to our computer where we can use the CAD software to begin designing your crown based on the measurements taken from the images. Once you have approved the look of your crown we will use the CAM technology to create your dental crown in our office while you wait. Then, we will permanently cement the crown to your tooth. The entire process only takes one hour!
