We at Smiles For Life are dedicated to using advanced technology at our practice. It’s one of the reasons we have such a strong family of patients at our Harrisonburg, VA office. One such system that’s improved patient experience is CEREC® (chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics) technology. It allows patients to get custom tooth-colored dental crowns in just a single visit to the practice.
CEREC® same-day dental crowns are durable and convenient, and mean great things for the look and health of your smile. Dr. Joe McIntyre and the rest of the treatment team would like to go over the benefits of getting same-day dental crowns.
No Need for Multiple Dental Visits
With CEREC® same-day dental crowns, the impressions and fabrication of the dental crown can be completed in just a single dental visit. There is no need to schedule two separate visits about a week apart to get a custom dental crown placed. This saves an immense amount of time.
Rather than taking time off from work twice, you just need to clear out some time on a single day to have a custom crown created. The CEREC® dental crown is created at the practice in just a few hours. It’s such a convenience, especially for people who are usually quite busy.
You Don’t Need Temporary Crowns
Since the CEREC® same-day crown is created at the practice, there is no need for you to have temporary dental crowns made. You will have your teeth prepped at the practice and wait there for the final crown to be made.
Since you won’t have to weak temporary restorations for about a week, that means no change to your diet or the look of your smile. Again, convenience is a key advantage of the CEREC® same-day crowns.
High-Quality Custom Restorations
Thanks to the quality of CEREC® technology, the same-day crowns are excellent in terms of aesthetics and strength. Aesthetically, they are of comparable quality to crowns that are made in a traditional dental lab. The solid block of dental porcelain can be color-matched to adjacent teeth, meaning they will blend in seamlessly with your smile.
Durable Restorations Thanks to Modern Technology
Thanks to CEREC® same-day crowns, you will be able to bite and chew just as you normally would. The CEREC® materials are extremely durable, meaning you won’t need to take it easy while having your favorite foods. You will still want to brush, floss, and wear mouth protection when applicable, just to ensure your smile is healthy for many years to come.
The Results Look Natural
We mentioned that CEREC® crowns look natural, and we mean it. When a person has a CEREC® same-day crown in place, they can laugh, smile, and speak with total confidence. They won’t have to worry about a metal restoration showing or an artificial-looking tooth that’s extremely apparent. With CEREC® same-day crowns, your smile looks totally natural.
