CEREC One-Visit Crowns
We know that your busy schedule may make it a challenge to find time for lengthy dental visits. Receiving high-quality dental care shouldn’t be complicated, and we strive to provide you with efficient, updated treatments that protect your oral health and enhance your smile.
Advances in dental technology like CEREC one-visit crowns allow us to streamline your visits so you can get in, get out, and get on with your busy life. Convenient one-visit crowns allow you to avoid the process associated with traditional crowns – you don’t have to live with a temporary crown, and you will leave our office the same day with a beautiful, natural-looking dental restoration.
Most traditional methods for creating dental restorations require several appointments to complete. CEREC is advanced technology for creating and placing beautiful, durable restorations during a single visit. These include crowns, inlays/onlays, veneers, and some dental bridges.
Benefits of CEREC Crowns
We mill CEREC crowns out of pure porcelain to create a beautiful dental restoration that is stain-resistant and durable. There are many benefits to using one-visit crowns:
- They can usually be completed in just a single visit.
- There are no temporary crowns or impressions to worry about.
- Your crowns are made of durable tooth-colored porcelain.
- The crowns are metal-free for a natural appearance.
Crowns made using CEREC also help us maintain the healthy structure of your tooth because they are bonded to your natural tooth, so less of your tooth needs to be removed to accommodate your crown. In many cases, we only need to remove the damaged part of the tooth to place your new crown.
Creating Your CEREC Crown
One-visit crowns are fabricated using cutting-edge technology right here in our office. Dr. Joe Arcadipane begins the process by shaping your tooth to prepare it for your new crown. Next, we take an image of your tooth with an infrared camera.
This image is put into a computer program so we can view a model of your tooth and construct your new crown. The CEREC crown is then created out of a porcelain block using the model of your tooth. Finally, the crown is adjusted to fit perfectly, polished, and secured in your mouth.
Convenient, Friendly Dental Care
We offer the highest quality dental care that takes your busy schedule into account. Our convenient early morning and evening hours make it easy for you to fit visits in before or after work or school.
Our goal is to help you achieve outstanding oral health, but we understand that financial considerations are a big factor in deciding on certain treatments. Dental insurance can be complicated, and like most people, you probably have questions about what your plan covers.
A member of our knowledgeable team will be happy to take the time to guide you through the process so you know exactly what to expect before treatment begins. We participate with almost all insurance providers, and if you don’t have insurance, we offer CareCredit interest-free financing.
If you have questions about CEREC restorations or would like more information about financing your treatment, please contact our Eynon dental office. A helpful member of our team will be happy to assist you.
