CEREC Same-Day Restorations
Receiving the diagnosis that you need a dental crown is not always the best news to hear, especially when you consider the time it takes to complete the process. You’ll need an initial preparation appointment to design your new crown and place a temporary crown for you to wear while your permanent restoration is fabricated at the dental laboratory. Then you’ll return in 2-4 weeks to have your final restoration placed. This doesn’t account for any problems with the temporary crown that can occur while you’re waiting and require you to return for additional appointments.
It’s quite a process, and Dr. Rashpal Deol understands that it often conflicts with our patients’ busy schedules. For this reason, Dr. Deol has invested in revolutionary technology called CEREC that allows us to complete your entire crown restoration during one appointment at our office. CEREC has completely streamlined the crown fabrication process, making it more comfortable and efficient for our patients!
When do I Need a Dental Crown?
When your tooth sustains an injury, infection, or fracture that is beyond the scope of what a filling can repair, Dr. Deol will recommend a crown to restore your tooth. A crown is designed to replace your entire tooth and fit over your remaining tooth structure like a cap.
Dr. Deol will custom shade your crown so that it’s aesthetically pleasing and matches your existing teeth. Your new crown is also easy to care for, as you’ll be able to brush and floss like you were used to. Dental crowns are an excellent way to restore your tooth because they provide all the function you once had, while also protecting your root.
How Does CEREC Work?
We utilize 3D technology to scan an image of your tooth directly to our CEREC milling machine, located in our office. The 3D image takes the place of the messy and uncomfortable impressions we used to have to take in the past. Dr. Deol is able to design and customize your new tooth while you wait, and our milling machine fabricates your final restoration, which we’ll place before you leave. The result is a high quality porcelain crown that you’ll be proud of and can rely on for years to come.
At Oak Ridge Dental, we understand how busy and hectic our patients’ lives can be, and this is why we’re proud to offer advanced technology like CEREC that is designed to streamline your care and make it stress-free for you. Your comfort is always our top priority, and we know you’ll appreciate the advantages that same-day dentistry offers.
