Crowns are often used to repair and replace teeth that are too severely damaged to survive on their own. The process of getting a crown typically involves several visits to the dentist over a period of several weeks. This process can be frustrating when your time is limited. Fortunately, Drs. White and Haines offer same day crowns created by the CEREC machine to patients that are qualified.
What’s Special About the CEREC Machine?
The CEREC machine is used to create a porcelain crown in one single visit. Rather than sending the mold off to the laboratory to be created and returned several weeks later, they are created right in the office with a special machine. Rather than dealing with a temporary crown for several weeks as you wait for your permanent one to be created, you can have your tooth prepped and repaired in a single day.
Why Same Day Crowns Benefit Patients
The last thing you want to do is spend your extra time and money at the dentist’s office, but traditional crowns often require you to do just that. With the CEREC machine, you enjoy the following benefits:
• No discomfort during impressions, as digital pictures are taken of the mouth
• CEREC crowns are created of a material that is similar to tooth enamel and is compatible with the mouth
• Same day crowns are natural looking and polished to match your natural smile
