When you live a fast-paced life, it’s hard to wait for the things that you need. Although some things are worth waiting for, other things really need prompt attention – like damaged teeth. No one wants to wait weeks to repair a fractured or broken tooth. With CEREC same-day dental crowns, damaged teeth can be repaired the same day as your initial dental visit. If you live in Riverside, California, or nearby communities, you can contact Neal Edwards DDS for same-day crown treatment.
Both traditional and CEREC crowns provide support and protection for damaged teeth. The difference lies in how your crown is designed and fabricated. For a traditional crown, your dentist will evaluate your damaged tooth, cleanse it of infection or decay, if necessary, and make a mold of your tooth to create a crown for your use. This mold is sent to an outside lab to have your crown designed and fabricated – a process that generally takes two weeks to complete. In the meantime, a temporary crown is installed to relieve discomfort and protect your tooth.
CEREC technology dramatically shortens the crown design, creation, and installation process, making it possible to receive a permanent crown in one dental visit. After evaluating and cleaning your damaged tooth, Dr. Neal Edwards will have digital impressions made and uploaded to a computer software program to initiate the crown design and fabrication process. With the help of computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology, your Riverside dentist can custom-design and fabricate your crown onsite to avoid delays in completing your treatment. Once your crown is fabricated, we can bond it in place immediately, making any necessary adjustments for a perfect fit.
CEREC same-day crowns eliminate the use of outside labs or the need for temporary crowns to complete your dental crown treatment. You can walk out of our clinic with a brand-new tooth and a fully restored smile on the same day as your initial visit.
CEREC same-day crowns can save you time, money, frustration, and discomfort in getting a tooth repaired when you need it. Your smile can be fully restored in time to attend an upcoming wedding, important work seminar, or holiday gathering with family and friends. In addition to providing a timely restoration, CEREC technology gives you:
Avoid delays in getting the tooth repair services you need with CEREC dental crown treatment.
