Have you ever received a dental procedure that required you to receive a crown? Depending on where you went, you may have had to wait weeks before your permanent crown was ready for you. Many dental offices rely on off-site labs to create their restorations (including crowns, bridges and veneers). These labs are often overwhelmed with work, which is why it can take a long time for them to create and send permanent crowns back to the various dental offices that ordered them. During the waiting period, patients (like yourself) are stuck with low-quality temporary crowns that can potentially become dislodged while eating.
Fortunately, you don’t need to worry about this common scenario when you receive same day dentistry services from Brewer Family Dentistry. Same day dental procedures are very convenient and can save you time and money, since you won’t need to schedule a second dental appointment just to get a permanent crown placed.
How Same Day Dentistry Works
Drs. Dean and Amanda Brewer use CEREC® technology to create beautiful, accurate restorations in a matter of minutes. The CEREC® process follows these steps:
The tooth receiving the restoration is cleaned and prepared, then an optical impression is made of the area (no need for messy impressions!)
The image from the optical impression is sent to the CEREC® milling machine (on site)
A highly accurate, aesthetically appealing restoration is created in minutes
The new restoration is cemented permanently to the tooth
CEREC® technology is also commonly used to improve the outcome of dental implant placement and reduces the number of appointments patients need to schedule. If you plan on getting dental implants placed, it’s wise to visit a dentist in Modesto, CA, who uses CEREC® technology.
