The three-week wait that used to be standard for anyone who needed a crown is no more! We offer CEREC® , single day crowns made to order right in your dentist's office. For Riverview residents, Inspiration Dental offers these same day crowns, also known as CEREC crowns, making tooth repair fast and affordable.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is method used by dentists o replace filling and perform tooth restoration. Same day crowns, or CEREC crowns, are made using CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) machines; these are digital scanners that take a picture of the tooth that needs the crown. Our dentist can then create a full ceramic crown that the machine essentially prints. The technology has been around since the 1990s, but it has really taken off in the past few years because it eliminates much of the annoyance associated with getting a traditional crown.
With normal dental crowns, patients would need to go in for two appointments over three weeks or so, with two shots of anesthetic and a lot of waiting. With CEREC® , same day crowns take maybe an hour or two and can be installed that same day with benefits that include:
When you visit our dentist about for a tooth that needs a crown, you'll be able to find out more about cost, looks, and care. In most cases, patients prefer the ease of same day CEREC® crowns. However, if you decide you want a traditional crown, your dentist can still start the process for that during the appointment. You'll schedule a second appointment when you're done on that first day.
