That problem tooth in the back of your mouth just became more problematic – the large filling just came out, and your tooth looks broken, at least from what you can see. You know you need to work with your dentist in Westchester County to address this problem, but you’ve heard from your friends that a dental crown will take weeks. Since this doesn’t sit well with you, you talk with the team at Pelham Family Dental Arts to see if there are any other options. And, with CEREC in Westchester Country from our practice, you can have the permanent solution you’re looking for with a same-day dental crown.
What Is CEREC?
CEREC is a revolutionary technology that provides a long-lasting porcelain dental crown in one dental visit. CEREC stands for a mouthful: Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (also known as CE-ramic REC-onstruction). When you see Dr.Vaiman and Dr. Kessler, you’ll go through the following process for your same-day crown:
- We will take a detailed picture of your mouth and the tooth that needs repaired with a digital camera.
- We’ll use advanced computer software to convert that picture into the dental crown that’s right for you.
- Our dentists will prepare your tooth to make it ready for the placement of the CEREC crown.
- An in-office milling unit will create your perfectly designed crown from a single block of porcelain – all right there in our office, at the same appointment.
Why Is CEREC Better Than Traditional Crowns?
Traditional crowns are a drawn-out process. At your first visit, your tooth would be prepared, you’d have a molded impression taken to assist in making the crown, and that impression would be sent off to the lab.
You’d have a temporary crown placed and then you’d be sent home to play the waiting game. After the lab finally completed your crown – a couple weeks later – you’d go back to the office for a second visit to have the permanent crown placed.
While traditional crowns work just fine, there is a true difference in the patient experience when working with our team – we understand how busy our fellow New Yorkers are, and know that time is of the utmost importance.
Who wants to come back for another visit when this technology makes a second appointment unnecessary? CEREC offers a convenient, long-lasting solution without the messy impression in the very same office visit.
Does CEREC Work?
Absolutely! Although it might seem too good to be true, CEREC same-day crowns have been thoroughly researched and are highly effective – the only difference from these versus traditional crowns is the amount of time it takes to receive your permanent solution.
