Nothing ruins a beautiful meal with friends quicker than the telltale crack of your tooth, sensitivity to follow, and then the unwelcome news that you need a dental crown. How will you ever fit a crown procedure into your busy schedule? With two long appointments needed to complete the procedure, it takes two days out of your work schedule that you don’t have. Well Dr. Darlene Sand Wall has great news for you. She utilizes revolutionary technology in her practice that allows her to complete your crown in only one appointment! Here’s why you should choose CEREC in Erlanger, KY for dental crowns.
What is CEREC Technology?
CEREC uses 3D imaging to scan a picture of your damaged tooth. Dr. Sand Wall will use CEREC technology to custom design and shade your new tooth, which will be created from the milling machine located in Dr. Sand Wall’s office. The whole process takes only an hour or two, and CEREC uses only the highest quality porcelain to fabricate your crown, so you can rest assured that you’ll be receiving a restoration that you can trust and rely on.
What are the Benefits of a CEREC Crown?
For most patients the biggest benefit CEREC offers is the time it saves. The old crown treatment process involved two long appointments, one for preparation and one for placement.
Patients were also wearing a temporary crown while their permanent restoration was being fabricated. Many patients encountered issues with their temporary crowns breaking or falling out, which meant additional trips to the dentist. The whole process could take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to complete. This wait time is no longer necessary with CEREC one-day appointments!
With 3D imaging, patients also don’t have to endure the messy impressions dentists would have to take of their teeth. The entire crown treatment process is much more comfortable and efficient for patients who choose CEREC.
Dr. Sand Wall and her team understand how valuable your time is and how hectic your schedule can be, and this is why she’s invested in this revolutionary technology. With CEREC you can receive the treatment you need in a fraction of the time it used to take to complete a dental crown.
If your tooth needs a crown, don’t delay in getting your treatment done as it can result in further damage to your tooth. Instead, contact our office and learn how CEREC technology can help you. We’ll be happy to schedule your next appointment for you!
