Convenience and value: CEREC crowns from Richmond, VA dentistDental crowns are a versatile and necessary part of general dentistry. A crown restores natural appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma. A crown strengthens a tooth that has had root canal therapy, or finishes a dental implant replacement for a missing tooth. Crowns are also part of a dental bridge unit. Patients in the Richmond, VA area enjoy additional benefits with CEREC same day crowns from Dr. Olivia Hart.
While you waitIf you receive a conventional crown, you can count on at least two dental appointments, and several weeks wearing a temporary restoration while your crown is made at an off-site laboratory. Dr. Hart has invested in contemporary equipment and training to fabricate lustrous porcelain crowns, chair-side. That reduces your travel and missed work time. You leave the office with a beautifully restored smile in one visit.
Straightforward processThe CEREC procedure is similar to getting a traditional crown – but much more efficient. The resulting restoration is just as strong, durable, and natural-looking, and the cost is comparable.
- The treatment area is numbed to ensure your comfort.
- The tooth is prepped – damaged structure is removed and the tooth is shaped to hold the crown.
- The doctor takes three dimensional images.
- Robust CAD/CAM computer software precisely designs your crown.
- An on-site milling machine fabricates the crown from a solid block of porcelain.
- The crown is shaded to match existing dentition.
- Dr. Hart cements the crown in place, with a final polish for sparkle.
- The entire appointment usually takes two hours or less.
Providing same day, non-metal CEREC crowns is just one example of Dr. Hart’s commitment to providing convenient dental care that contributes to whole body wellness and gorgeous smiles.
