If your dentist has recommended that you get a crown of cap, you should speak to a Brentwood prosthodontist about getting same day crowns. Typically, the procedure to have a crown placed takes more than one office visit. However, if you go to a dentist who has and utilized CEREC technology, you could get them done in one visit.
Dental crowns have several important uses and offer patients many benefits. A Brentwood prosthodontist like ours at Zweig Schwartzman Prosthodontics might recommend a crown for many different reasons. Crowns help to restore the function of the teeth and they also improve their appearance after a patient has undergone a restorative procedure such as a root canal, to cover dental implants, to attach bridges and to prevent cracked teeth from getting worse. While they are very beneficial, a disadvantage to getting a crown is the amount of time it takes. They require multiple steps and more than one visit to complete. However, there is a solution for that. If you choose a dentist who utilizes CEREC technology like ours at Zweig Schwartzman Prosthodontics, you will save a lot of time. CEREC enables you to get your crown more quickly and it will involve fewer steps. While it usually takes two visits to get a crown and a lot of steps, these steps could be eliminated if you were to get CEREC same day crowns. If you get a CEREC crown, you will complete the entire procedure in just one day. That is why CEREC crowns are called “same day crowns). In order to get CEREC same day crowns, your dentist will need to have the specialized CEREC technology and equipment. The CEREC dentist would utilize advanced technology that enables him to provide Computer-assisted-design-Computer-manufacture crowns (abbreviated as CAD-CAM). With this CEREC technology, the crown is made while you wait in the office and you can leave the office with your new tooth!
