Traditionally, creating and placing dental crowns requires two visits to the office – one to take impressions of your teeth, and one (several weeks later) to place your crowns. At Cosmetic & Esthetic Dentistry, we dramatically shorten this process by using our advanced in-house CEREC machine to create and place custom dental crowns in a single office visit.
CEREC technology has revolutionized tooth restoration in modern dentistry. After preparing your tooth for a dental crown, an optical impression is taken, which is processed through the CEREC Acquisition Unit and turned into a 3D model of your tooth. Dr. Clancy will then design your custom dental crown using the 3D model.
After the design process is complete, the blueprint of your custom crown is sent to the CEREC Milling Unit, which will create an all-porcelain dental crown that is three times stronger than a porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crown. In addition to being sized and shaped for a perfect fit, your CEREC crown will be tinted to match the color of your surrounding teeth. The result is a complete tooth restoration that is as strong as it is beautiful.
