At Peters Dental Associates, we pride ourselves in providing some of the most advanced technology and investing back into our patients. Our practice is pleased to offer solutions that our patients can enjoy, including same-day restorations such as dental crowns.
The CEREC system for same-day dental crowns
In a traditional dental practice, obtaining restorations such as dental crowns were often a process that took several weeks. The natural tooth would be prepared by removing surrounding enamel, and then impressions were made to send off to an outside dental laboratory. In the meantime, patients had a temporary restoration bonded over the tooth to protect it while they waited for their new crown—which oftentimes took weeks. Then, they made another appointment to remove the temporary and place the final restoration.
CEREC eliminates all of the time wasted and instead provides a proper flow that offers restorations the same day. At our practice, Dr. M.H. Peters, Jr. prepares the tooth by removing enamel, and then takes easy and simple digital impressions of the natural tooth. Using a block of porcelain and a special milling machine, the dentist is then able to use these digital images to create the dental crown right in the office within twenty minutes or less. Patients can have preparation, creation, and placement of their new dental crown done in one single appointment, eliminating the need for patients to come back to the office a separate time to have their final restoration bonded in place.
We know that our patients live busy, active lives, and we want to provide the technology that can allow them the opportunity to have necessary dental work completed while saving time and energy for both dentist and patient.
