Have you had a dental crown placed in the last few decades? If so, you probably remember that the process involved multiple appointments at the office and having to carefully take care of an ill-fitting, uncomfortable temporary crown while you wait for your final restoration. At the office of Dr. Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D., in Boston, MA, you can ditch the temporary crown and multiple visits. With CEREC same-day crowns, you can have a strong, beautiful-looking, fully functional dental crown in just a single appointment.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns Explained
During traditional dental crown treatment, individuals will need to plan on at least two separate appointments spread out over several weeks. During the first visit, any decay is treated, and the tooth is shaped down for the crown. Impressions are taken and a temporary crown is placed over the tooth. Traditional crowns are fabricated in an off-site laboratory and are ready in a few weeks for permanent placement.
With CEREC same-day crowns, this entire process is completed in a single appointment. We start by prepping the tooth for the crown just like we would for traditional treatment. We then use sophisticated CAD software to take digital images of the tooth. This information is then used to mill your custom crown out of a high-quality block of ceramic right in our office. Once the crown is complete, it is bonded into place and you can leave the office with a completed restoration.
