CEREC Dental Crowns in One Day
If you have a dental crown, you likely remember how lengthy the process was to get it. Traditional crown treatments typically call for at least two appointments; but if something doesn’t fit right, it can mean a third. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, that’s no longer the case.
Fortunately, Dr. Vipul Patel has invested in the best technology for patients at Warwick Valley Dental. One example is CEREC. CEREC uses CAD/CAM digital imaging and mapping to create a customized ceramic dental crown in just one appointment.
Now, you can complete all of your treatment in one trip to our office!
Single Visit Dental Crowns
Getting a CEREC crown involves a preparation appointment similar to traditional crown treatment. First, Dr. Patel will numb your tooth and then reshape the healthy structure so that a restoration can fit over it. Next, he’ll take a digital scan (in lieu of a gooey impression) and transfer that data into our CEREC milling machine. We’ll choose a matching block of ceramic and CEREC will carve your new restoration from the solid structure. Finally, we’ll fit and bond it over your tooth. There’s no need to leave the office!
