When it comes to dental problems like chips, cracks, or damage caused by decay, crowns are a tried-and-true solution that can restore complete form and function to your tooth. However, since they usually require two separate appointments to complete, the procedure can take up a lot of your valuable time. Thankfully, our team at Encore Dentistry understands the importance of this issue – that’s why we now offer CEREC crowns in Arlington! Just like the name implies, we’re able to complete your entire dental crown procedure faster and more simply in the span of just a single appointment, saving you from complicated scheduling and undue frustration.
CEREC stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.” This advanced method of restorative dentistry uses CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) technology to customize and create a permanent and fully functional dental crown. Dental professionals who incorporate this technology into their practice like Dr. Cabansag also have an in-house milling unit that creates the restoration while you wait. Instead of waiting weeks and wearing a temporary crown, you can leave the same day with a new and improved dental crown.
While taking impressions, creating crowns, and placing them securely may seem like a lot to ask for in a single appointment at our Arlington dental office, it’s no trouble at all with the help of our in-house milling unit! The process starts by preparing your tooth and removing any decay. Once the tooth is sealed and fully prepped, we will take detailed notes and impressions of your teeth, which will be sent to a nearby computer, allowing Dr. Cabansag to make any adjustments to the crown. Once the image is ready, we will send this important information to our in-house milling unit that will craft a beautiful, custom-made restoration that fits your smile perfectly – all in a convenient time frame.
The final step will be to cement the tooth in place and ensure it fits comfortably and looks completely natural.
In choosing same-day dental crowns in Arlington, you will discover there are many great benefits that cannot be matched by other restorative solutions. While traditional dental crowns are highly effective and long-lasting, time and availability are becoming less and less for busy individuals like yourself. This is just one of the many reasons so many people are choosing CEREC dental crowns. Other great benefits include:
