With traditional crowns you have to schedule two appointments – one for preparation and placement of a temporary crown, and one for placement of the permanent crown. The time required for this type of simple procedure is just not convenient for patients so Winters Dental Excellence has employed the use of the CEREC machine which can mill a strong, beautiful restoration in about an hour. This modern dental technology alleviates the inconvenience patients face with a traditional crown, and because your time is as valuable as your smile, you will be happy that we have it.
To schedule an appointment for CEREC single-visit dental crowns in Tulsa, please call 918-528-3330 or email Winters Dental Excellence today.
Benefits of CEREC One-Visit Crowns
CEREC is an amazing advance in dental technology that offers a number of great benefits for you, including:
- Only one dental visit required
- Crown made while you wait
- All-ceramic biocompatible material
- Digital imaging–no need to bite into impression material
- Color match as good or better than the dental lab
- Long-lasting crown comparable to the best available options
In fact, CEREC made inlays and onlays have been shown to have a lower failure rate than any dental material commonly in use, including metal amalgam and gold.
But if CEREC restorations do fail, they have another benefit: the pattern is stored in the computer and we can mill you a new one without having to take a new impression.
How CEREC Works
The CEREC machine takes a 3D image of your tooth, then mills a crown in about an hours’ time. We then permanently place the crown during your single visit, and you’ll leave our Tulsa office with a full, healthy smile. There is no need for a return visit or the need for a temporary crown as seen with traditional crown treatments.
The CEREC machine is responsible for millions of satisfied patients’ restorations worldwide. Dentists and patients have learned to trust this great technology that is backed with 20 years of research. In addition to crowns, CEREC can also mill inlays, onlays, and veneers for your convenience. Ask us about CEREC crowns today so you can spend less time in the dentist’s chair and more time sharing your smile.
The procedure of a CEREC crown is the same as that of a traditional crown. The only difference is that we don’t have to send your molded impressions off to a dental lab to get the crown manufactured. Once the crown has been completed, it is adhesively bonded to your tooth and the restoration is complete. Your crown requires the standard dental care that your other teeth benefit from: regular brushing and flossing to remove plaque and debris from the area where the crown meets the gum.
