Modern dental care has made some amazing advances in recent years, and one such innovation is the CEREC technology that makes same-day crowns possible. CEREC, also called CERamic REConstruction, has revolutionized the way dental crowns are constructed and placed.
If you’ve had a crown put on in the past, it probably took you weeks, if not months, to get the work completed. Impressions have to be made and sent to the lab, the tooth has to be temporized, and you wait while the crown is created in the lab. Then it comes back to your dentist’s office for placement. The whole process required multiple office visits. Things have changed, and the CEREC method of creating crowns has streamlined the process greatly.
Winter Haven Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is proud to be able to offer same-day CEREC crowns. This process allows us to do all the necessary work in one office visit. We use computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to design and create your crown while you sit comfortably in the exam chair. What used to take weeks can now be done in a matter of hours.
This is no “quick fix,” either. CEREC crowns last at least as long as traditional crowns, and cost about the same amount. Take control of your dental care by scheduling your appointment today. We are happy to help restore your teeth in a way that will make you happy and healthy. We have the skills and the technology to solve most dental issues. If you’ve been putting off getting that crown, stop delaying and call at 863-293-1108 to learn how we can help you.
