Dublin, CA dentist offers same-day dental crowns with CEREC technology
There are times when a patient may require a dental crown to restore their smile. This often happens when there has been a large area of decay that has developed in a tooth, or when a tooth has had extensive surgery to address the infection, such as root canal therapy. In situations such as this, patients of Dublin, CA often require the fabrication and placement of a dental crown. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and her team at StarBrite Dental Dublin are pleased to not only offer dental crowns but offer same-day dental crowns with today’s CEREC technology.
How to obtain a dental crown
Dental crowns are porcelain restorations used to cover the entire visible portion of the tooth. These restorations typically require temporaries and a week-long wait with other dental professionals. The tooth obtaining the crown needs to be prepared with the removal of enamel around the tooth. Then, impressions are made and sent off to a dental laboratory for the fabrication of the final crown. The dentist places a temporary in the meantime, and the patient returns for their final crown once it arrives.
However, with CEREC same-day dental crowns, patients can obtain their restoration in one appointment. The tooth is prepared before digital imaging is used to create a 3D picture of the tooth’s surface. Then, a unique milling device creates a dental crown out of a block of porcelain right in the dental facility, allowing the dentist to place the crown over the top of the tooth and complete the process in approximately 30 minutes or less.
Why choose CEREC crowns?
- CEREC dental crowns are just as beautiful as those created in a laboratory
- CEREC dental crowns are completed in a short period
- CEREC dental crowns last as long as traditional crowns but take a fraction of the time to make
