CEREC Same-Day Crowns and Bridges
People today are busier than ever yet still do not want to compromise on quality care when it comes to their smiles. At Norfolk County Dental Care, we have introduced an innovative technology to provide our patients with dental crowns, inlays, and onlays in just one appointment. Same-day restorations mean no more temporaries, multiple appointments of ill-fitting crowns.
Why a Tooth Needs a Dental Crown
There are a number of reasons why your tooth may require a dental crown. Your tooth may be broken or cracked. You may have just had root canal therapy. We also use crowns to fix a worn down tooth or to improve the appearance of a tooth that is discolored or has an unusual shape.
Our dentists will always discuss all of your options with you so that you can make the choice that works best for you. We present conservative treatment options, along with ideal advanced options to protect your smile for the long-term.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns
In the past, we have had to work with dental labs to create dental restorations – and we still do in some cases – but for a majority of our restorative dental crowns, we can complete your procedure in a single visit in our Norfolk dental office.
Using computer-aided design and manufacture (CAD/CAM), we create beautiful, long-lasting dental crowns during your visit.
Digital Scan of the Tooth
Rather than using uncomfortable impression paste, we scan the tooth using our 3-D scanner and upload the information to our CEREC software.
CEREC Design and Manufacture
Our software communicates with our in-office milling device to create a custom restoration out of a single piece of durable ceramic. The size and shape of your restoration will fit comfortably with your adjacent and opposing teeth. How your crown fits will impact your bite and jaw health.
Our dentists expertly design restorations from start to finish – one of the many benefits of opting for same-day dental crowns.
Crowns That Match Your Smile
Feeling confident in the appearance of your smile is important. Our dentists make each crown a work of art by carefully shading, adding color, and glazing it to match your natural teeth. This provides a seamless result when you smile.
Dental Bridges to Replace Missing Teeth
Our same-day restorative capabilities extend to dental bridges, which replace missing teeth without the need for surgery.
A crown on one or both adjacent teeth will anchor an artificial tooth in place to bridge the gap in your smile. The process is similar to dental crowns and will look just as natural too.
Benefits of Choosing CEREC
Our patients appreciate many of the benefits that CEREC provides:
- No old-fashioned impressions
- No waiting time for the lab to create your dentistry
