If you had the choice, would you rather get a dental crown in one visit or two? If you’re like most people, you value your time and would prefer to go to the dentist as little as possible. Believe us, we understand and don’t take any offense. That’s why our dentist in Holly, MI, offers same-day CEREC crowns. This makes it easier and more convenient than ever to get the dental treatment you need.
Here’s what you need to know about the main differences between traditional and same-day crowns.
In the past, dental offices relied exclusively on third-party laboratories to create restorations like crowns. This meant that they had to send dental impressions to the nearest lab and wait several weeks for the crown to be fabricated. In the meantime, dentists placed temporary crowns to protect teeth until the final restorations arrived from the lab and were ready to be placed.
If a lab-fabricated crown didn’t match the desired shade or shape of the tooth, the dentist would have to request that a replacement be made. It also meant that the patient would have to return for yet another appointment. What a hassle!
At Bandy Dental, we’re pleased to announce that we design, fabricate, and place all of our CEREC crowns under the same roof. No repeat visits necessary!
What sets us apart from other dental practices is that we make our crowns in-house. This means that we handle the entire dental crown procedure under one roof! Not only does this eliminate the middleman, but it also reduces how much time you have to spend in the dental chair. No second appointments, and no hassle!
Dr. Bandy uses advanced CEREC technology to streamline your appointment. Once we prepare the receiving tooth and scan your smile, we’ll bring up your highly precise digital impressions on our computer. From there, Dr. Bandy will design your new CEREC crown to ensure the end result looks natural and blends in with the rest of your smile.
Once Dr. Bandy finalizes the design of your new crown, he’ll send it to the milling machine in our office. The machine will then sculpt your new CEREC crown out of a solid block of ceramic that matches both the shade and translucency of your natural enamel for a perfect match.
When the CEREC dental crown is ready, Dr. Bandy will bond it to your tooth and have you bite down to ensure the fit is both comfortable and natural. From there, you’ll be able to leave our office with your brand-new smile!
