At Macatawa Smiles, we useto create your tooth crown in one appointment. In the past, it would take a few weeks for your dental crown to be made in an off-site lab. Today, our dentist uses CEREC to make a digital impression of your teeth and create a crown that looks and feels natural.
Here are the main reasons why patients ask for CEREC same-day crowns.
1. Digital Dental Impressions
In the past, dentists used pink dental putty to take impressions of your teeth.
The only problem was that pressing a tray of putty against the roof of the patient’s mouth can trigger their gag reflex. Fortunately, our dentist uses a slim hand-held device to take pictures of your teeth and gums.
From these digital impressions, Dr. Habecker is able to design your dental crown right in front of your eyes.
2. High Degree of Precision
Not only areless invasive than trays filled with goop, but they’re more accurate.
The digital scanner will take a precise digital impression so we can create a same-day crown that fits perfectly over your tooth. These measurements are often more accurate than impression putty because our systems can handle things like slight movements and false impressions which often tamper with the putty process.
3. No Waiting
In the past, patients had to wait for weeks for an off-site lab to create dental crowns. Fortunately, Dr. Habecker is always looking for ways to improve your experience as a patient, which is why he started using CEREC to streamline the.
A CEREC crown can be made in one appointment so you can leave our office smiling with confidence.
After Dr. Habecker takes an impression of your teeth, he can design your dental crown right in front of your eyes using(computer-aided design and manufacturing) software.
Once your dentist is satisfied with the look and fit of your CEREC crown, he’ll send it to the milling machine in our office.
Thewill sculpt your new tooth crown from a block of ceramic or other natural tooth-colored materials.
4. No Temporary Crown
Since we’re able to create same-day crowns right in our office, you’ll never have to deal with the hassle of a temporary crown ever again.
Since a temporary crown must eventually be removed, your dentist wouldn’t have been able to use a strong adhesive. As a result, people have often experienced their temporary crown(s) falling out or not fitting perfectly when you bit together.
Our dentist understands that temporary crowns are a hassle for patients, which is why he uses CEREC. Since your crown is created and placed in one appointment, you can avoid the discomfort of a temporary crown.
5. Looks and Feels More Natural
A CEREC crown is durable enough to last for years to come. This means you can smile with confidence knowing that your tooth restoration looks and feels natural.
It has always been our goal to help patients feel comfortable with their smiles, which is why we provide same-day dental crowns. And there is no compromise in crown quality. A CEREC same-day crown looks just as natural as those crowns created in labs.
Once Dr. Habecker retrieves your crown from the milling machine, he’ll check the color, shade, and fit before bonding it to your tooth. Since digital dental impressions are highly precise, we often make little to no alterations.
