Glen Allen, VA residents discover same day dental crowns to strengthen teeth
At Richmond Family Dentistry, we understand that time and convenience are priorities for many patients. Patients want quality products quickly. Advancements in dental technology have enabled patients to receive quality treatment in a more timely fashion. Located in Glen Allen, VA, Dr. Olivia Hart proudly utilizes the CEREC milling machine to produce same day dental crowns.
Advantages of CEREC crowns
CEREC is an abbreviation for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This innovative technology allows the dentist to use an in-office machine to create quality crowns on the day of the dental appointment. Like traditional crowns which are fabricated at a laboratory off-site, CEREC crowns are protective caps used to restore a cracked tooth, to cover a dental implant, or to restore a tooth after a root canal. By fulfilling the same functions as a traditional crown, CEREC crowns have a number of benefits.
- Digital impressions are taken of your teeth rather than manual impressions.
- CAD technology allows the dentist to design and create the crown on site. This technology matches the crown to the adjacent teeth in color, size, and shape for a natural-looking result.
- CEREC crowns are fabricated using a single block of ceramic or resin materials. This ensures a sturdy, durable result that is less likely to chip.
- By having a milling machine in the office, the entire process is completed in a single visit so you do not have to wear a temporary crown or make multiple visits to the dentist.
Time, convenience, and appearance are valuable to patients. The ability to have dental restorations completed in an efficient manner is an important technological advance. Dr. Hart uses the milling machine to provide safe, fast crowns the same day without the need to wait for the lab to create one. Better yet, the CEREC crowns are strong, closely resemble real teeth, and are similarly priced to traditional crowns.
