CEREC Means Same-Day Crowns
Welcome to the Antoine Dental Center blog!
If you are looking for a great dentist in Houston, you are in luck. We actually have 5 spectacular dentists on staff here. And our entire team subscribes to the notion that going to the dentist doesn’t have to be inconvenient or uncomfortable.
That’s why we try to make dentistry as easy and pleasant as possible. And we have applied that principle to dental crowns, a service that used to require multiple visits and could drag on for up to a month before the procedure was complete.
CEREC Makes Crowns The Easy Way
Like we said, at Antoine Dental Center, we value your time as much as you do, and we don’t want to waste any of it unnecessarily. That’s why we have invested heavily in CEREC dental crown technology that offers our patients an easy, reliable way to fix a number of issues.
CEREC is short for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. You don’t have to remember that. Just remember that what CEREC means for you is that we can do in about an hour what may take several weeks at another dentist’s practice.
The CEREC process starts when we make a digital impression of the tooth or teeth that need work. We then reshape your teeth into an abutment that will support your dental crown.
The thing to keep in mind is that, at other area practices, this may require sending your impression to a laboratory. The lab will then craft a dental crown for you as soon as they can get around to filling that order. You know as well as we do that it could be weeks before they are able to get to your dental crown and send it back to the dentist.
That’s not how it works here. With CEREC, we can sidestep that issue by doing it all in-house, which saves you from having to make an extra trip to the dentist. With CEREC, we use our on-site milling machine to craft your dental crown while you wait.
By utilizing modern computer software, we are able to send a digital impression of your teeth to the CEREC machine. The machine turns that information into a dental crown for you.
You can walk into our office with a tooth that has been really bothering you and go home with a natural-looking, more comfortable smile.
Immediately after your CEREC dental crowns are placed in your mouth, you will see and feel the difference. It’s an easy way to fix any number of dental problems without a big commitment of time.
CEREC crowns can quickly repair the appearance of your teeth and restore your bite force. On a practical level, this means that you can smile without feeling self-conscious, and you can eat without worry.
There’s really nothing to it. But if fear or dental anxiety has kept you from getting your tooth replaced or repaired, our sedation options can comfortably provide you with the treatment you need. All you have to do is ask. We’ll do whatever it takes to get you smiling again!
