Kingston, PA dentist offers same-day CEREC crowns
When a tooth experiences significant decay, damage, or disease that has impacted its structural integrity, it may be a smart choice to move forward with a dentist who provides dental crowns. Dental crowns are caps that are made to bond over a natural tooth to add an extra layer of protection and strength. It is often used when the damage has exceeded the point where a dental filling may be used to repair the tooth. At many dental practices, dental crowns require weeks to complete from start to finish, but our team at Lawrence Dental Group in Kingston, PA is proud to offer same-day dental crowns using CEREC technology.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a specialized system used in our dental practice to create dental restorations such as crowns with CAD/CAM software technology. Digital impressions are taken of the prepared tooth, and then the system creates a dental crown that will fit over the tooth and cover the structure.
With a block of porcelain and a milling device, the system then fabricates the dental crown for the patient—while they wait in the dental chair! In less than 20 minutes, a strong, durable, and quality crown is complete and ready for placement.
What are the benefits of CEREC dental crowns?
There are several advantages of CEREC crowns which make them extremely desirable for many of our patients. CEREC crowns are:
- Just as strong as laboratory-created crowns
- Made to match the patient’s existing teeth in shape, color, and size
- Long-lasting and easy to care for
- Available quickly while patients wait
- Eliminate the need for placing a temporary crown
- Readily available at Lawrence Dental Group!
