So, you’ve received the bad news that your tooth needs a dental crown. If you’ve had a crown in the past, you may remember that completing it requires two lengthy appointments with your dentist and 2 to 3 weeks to finish. Not to mention there may be additional visits needed if there are any problems with your temporary crown breaking or falling out.
You wonder how you’ll ever fit this treatment into your hectic schedule?
Delaying treatment, however, is not an option since your tooth is fractured. Waiting on restoring your tooth until a less busy time may cause more damage, an infection, and could even result in tooth loss.
At Aesthetic Dentistry of Wickford, we understand that your time is valuable, and that’s why our dentists have invested in an innovative technology called Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEREC.
This revolutionary technology allows our dentists to design, mill, and place a high quality porcelain crown during one short visit to our office so you don’t have to endure wearing a temporary crown and waiting on your restoration for two or more weeks.
If you need a dental crown in North Kingstown, our team is proud to offer CEREC crowns as a comfortable and efficient alternative to traditional crown.
CEREC uses 3-D technology to scan an image of your tooth, which Dr. Verbeyst or Dr. Morisseau will use to design and customize your crown. The restoration is then milled in a machine located in our office so our dentists can permanently place it during your visit. This means you will leave our office with a fully functioning and aesthetically pleasing crown you can rely on for many years to come.
CEREC is technology that has been in use for more than three decades and our patients can rest assured that the porcelain that is utilized is both durable and capable of blending flawlessly with your smile.
Besides saving you a lot of time, CEREC makes treatment more comfortable for patients with 3-D imaging, which eliminates the need for messy and uncomfortable impressions of your teeth. CEREC is also able to mill veneers, onlays, and inlays for all of your restorative needs.
If you need a dental crown, there is no reason to wait to schedule your appointment at Aesthetic Dentistry of Wickford since we can complete your restoration efficiently with same-day CEREC technology.
