CEREC Same Day Dental Crowns
Many people have busy schedules, and this can keep them from attending regular appointments and receiving the dental care their smiles need to thrive. This problem is especially prevalent when it comes to having restorations placed; after all, there are typically two appointments required – one to take impressions and provide the patient with a temporary restoration, and the other to fit the final product over the tooth or teeth in question. Here at Mosaic Smiles, we want to provide you with quality care in the quickest timeframe possible so that you’re sure to come back again and again. That’s why Dr. Aly Elgeddawi, Dr. Hisham Barakat, and the rest of our team are happy to offer the state-of-the-art services of our CEREC™ machine. With the help of CEREC™, we can create customized, tooth-colored restoration over the course of just one appointment.
The CEREC™ Procedure
First, one of our doctors will thoroughly remove any decay or foreign debris from the tooth and then shape it in preparation for the new restoration. Once it’s been sprayed with a fine powder, we’ll capture a digital image that will quickly appear in 3D on our computer screen. This allows our team to design the finished product and then hand that valuable information over to CEREC™, which goes to work on milling it. This entire process only takes around 15 minutes, and you can even watch the machine as it works. Once it’s finished, we’ll securely place the new restoration and ensure that it feels comfortable for you, competing the process.
