One-Visit Crowns are a Game Changer
A dental crown is a tried-and-true restorative dentistry solution. A crown renews a tooth that is too badly damaged for a filling to fix but that doesn’t need to be extracted. The process to design and place a traditional crown can take weeks and require several office visits. In today’s busy world, lots of folks see this time commitment as a real negative.
Residents of Henderson NV have a time-saving option when it comes to dental crowns. It’s called CEREC, and it’s advanced technology used by Dr. Heeyup Ghim of Black Mountain Dental. CEREC is a game changer in every way.
The Traditional Crown Process
The first step to prepare a traditional crown is a messy impression process to make a model of the tooth that needs to be restored. Next comes the application of a temporary crown to wear while your permanent crown is crafted in a lab. Temporaries can be unreliable, and you have to be careful with them. Then, after what seems like a lot of waiting, you have to return to the office to have your permanent crown bonded in place.
The CEREC Process
With CEREC, gone is the traditional impression process. Instead, we’ll scan your tooth to create a computer-aided 3-D model. The CEREC milling unit uses this image to precisely craft your custom crown from advanced, durable, and natural-looking ceramic. Dr. Ghim applies your CEREC one-visit crown and fine-tunes the placement and the finish. The best part – all of these steps occur in a single visit to our Henderson NV dental office.
CEREC crowns have a proven track record of longevity and performance. They look and feel natural and provide the benefits of a real tooth. A CEREC one-visit crown can be a great choice to repair a badly decayed, a cracked tooth, or a severely worn tooth. Plus, you’ll save time – lots of it.
A one-visit crown can be a boon for your smile and your schedule. It’s a win-win situation!
