Same Day Crown—Not 2 Visits
Yes – you can have a beautiful, strong, metal-free, porcelain crown done in ONE VISIT! No temporary crown, no second visit, no second time getting numb… If you’ve ever needed a dental crown before, you probably were not lucky enough to get a Same Day Crown, were you? You probably had to get a mouthful of “dental goo” to take the impression, then a temporary crown to wear for 1–3 weeks, hoping it would stay on the entire time, and then take more time for a second appointment at your dentist to get the real crown put in. But how would you like it if you got your crown the same day, right at our Charlotte dentist office?
Advantages of a Porcelain CEREC Same Day Crown
- Only 1 dentist appointment, not 2
- No temporary crown that can break or fall off, which could mean an extra visit
- No need to skip your favorite foods with the temporary crown
- No second time getting numbed
- When you leave, your crown is already done and you can eat whatever you want.
Convenient Dental Care in Charlotte
The CEREC AC Bluecam is one of the fastest and most accurate CAD/CAM system available to dental offices today; it is truly the wave of the future, but you can have that future right now. And what this modern technology does is make getting a dental crown convenient! The CEREC Bluecam allows us to create beautiful, very strong, all-porcelain crowns and onlays in just a single visit. We understand how hard it can be to take off work or have someone take care of the kids even once, but twice? And come on…..do you really want to have to take off work a second time, get numb a second time, have that temporary crown? Seriously? HA! I thought so…….of course not. 🙂
To be completely honest…….doing same day crowns with my CEREC machine is FUN! I’ve had pretty extensive training in using the CEREC machine, and it is a lot like using Photoshop for picture editing. In fact, there are a lot of similarities. The best part, though, patients tell me they think it is simply amazing to watch their brand new crown being made right in front of them. You can watch as I design it in the treatment room, and a lot of people sit in front of the chamber that mills out the porcelain in rapt fascination.
Digital Dentistry with CEREC Makes Dental Bridges Faster, Too
While it’s terrific that we can make beautiful porcelain crowns right in our office, our office isn’t quite at the point of making all-porcelain dental bridges (it’s coming soon!), our CEREC still makes this process a lot faster and more convenient than with traditional molds. With the CEREC Connect Digital Impression abilities, we scan the teeth instead of using the gooey dental impression material, and we can send the digital file to our lab before you’ve even gotten out of the chair with your temporary bridge! And since they have it so fast, our local dental lab, which is highly experienced in this technique, can usually
