Richmond, VA residents discover the cost effective benefits of CEREC crowns

cost effective benefits of CEREC crowns recommended by dentist in Richmond VA

Located in Richmond, VA, Dr. Olivia Hart of Richmond Family Dentistry offers same day crowns to restore chipped teeth. For patients concerned about the cost, the health and convenience benefits of CEREC crowns make them a popular choice to restore the smile quickly and effectively.

What is CEREC?

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Using CAD technology, dentists are able to create crowns during the patient’s appointment. A digital impression of the teeth is taken and then computerized to design the crown. The design is tweaked as necessary so the restoration can be fabricated by the in-office CEREC milling machine. The machine only takes a few minutes to finish the crown. The dentist can then bond to restoration to the patient’s tooth. The entire process is completed in a single dental visit.

Cost effectiveness of CEREC crowns

Many people expect same day crowns to be more expensive because of the speed and benefits over traditional crowns. However, there is usually minimal differences in price. Because the crown is created in-house rather than being sent out, there are no laboratory fees. Plus, you only need one appointment with the dentist. Our practice does work with most traditional insurance companies. Contact your insurance company to determine your covered expenses so you are aware of any out-of-pocket expenses you may have. If you are still concerned about the cost, contact our financial coordinator for details regarding payment plans.

The CEREC advantage

Patients opt for CEREC crowns for a number of reasons including:

  • Speed – The entire process is completed in a single office visit.
  • Comfort – The restorations are permanent so you do not need temporary crowns.
  • Convenience – Your time is valuable. CEREC crowns accommodate your need for speed and comfort.
  • Quality – CEREC crowns are durable and natural-looking so they look and act as natural teeth.

Dr. Hart and the staff at Richmond Family Dentistry are incredibly compassionate and accommodating. My kids, 7 and 11, both happily go to the dentist as do my husband and myself, both of which did not enjoy our dentist experiences growing up. Knowing that my family gets healthy, non-toxic dental health is the priority and having it all be a pleasant experience is a HUGE bonus. Thank you for providing such an amazing option for optimum health on many levels.
