At Salisbury Dental Care, we are excited to announce a revolutionary new service that allows you to have a new, metal-free crown in one office visit. Using the CEREC system, Dr. Koveos is able to repair a damaged tooth in as little as 90 minutes. In addition to the convenience of needing only one visit to complete the procedure and the discreetness of the metal-free crown, there are many other advantages to receiving same-day CEREC dental crowns in Salisbury.
What are Same-Day CEREC Dental Crowns?
Crowns are basically a protective cap that is placed over a tooth that has become damaged. Often, crowns are used after a root canal has been performed, as well as to fix a cracked or broken tooth. In some instances, a crown is placed over a tooth that is weak or has had a large filling. Weak teeth and those with large fillings are likely to crack. A crown resolves the risk while adding more function to the tooth. Crowns can also be used to cover an implant and to cover the teeth that are used to anchor a bridge.
Traditional crowns are typically made from metal, which requires a mold to be taken of the mouth, which has to be sent off to the lab, and then sent back to the dentist to be applied to the tooth. This is a lengthy process, which requires more than one visit. Not to mention, there is a lot of added attention drawn to the mouth when a metal crown is used.
Unlike traditional crowns, CEREC crowns are made from a block of ceramic or resin materials. Since the crowns are made right in the dentist office, there is no need to use a temporary crown while you wait for the crown to be made in the lab. Instead, the crown is almost instantly produced thanks to computer technology, which takes a picture of the tooth and mouth. Using CAD/CAM software, the crown is constructed to meet the specifications of your tooth, including the color of your existing teeth.
