Cerec one-visit crowns can be used by our dentist as a way of completing the process of getting a crown from start to finish in one visit. It does away with the need for a mold to be made and sent to an outside lab, after which you must schedule another appointment to come in and have the crown put in place. Cerec one-visit crowns can save time and trouble.
These crowns also do away with the need for impressions to be made. This in itself can be somewhat messy and frustrating. Instead, this method uses digital technology to design and fabricate the crowns. With the 3D photography and imagery that is taken while the patient is in the chair, the precise measurements are used by a computer to control the milling process of the new crown. This all takes place without the patient ever having to leave the office, and in no more than an hour, the new crown is in place.
If you have been told that you need a crown, it is more likely than not that you are a good candidate for a Cerec one-visit crown. If you have older restorations that are starting to fail and need to be replaced, you might want to ask about the Cerec method, especially if you want to replace the metal that was used previously with either stainless steel, porcelain fused with metal, or all-resin.
In addition to the need for two or more visits to get a traditional crown, you will need to be fitted with a temporary one during the waiting period. Since these crowns are, in fact, temporary, they are not designed to last very long, nor are they designed to blend in with the other teeth in appearance. Consequently, there can be some degree of aggravation that goes along with them. All this can be avoided with the use of Cerec one-visit crowns.
Cerec one-visit crowns allow you to avoid the wait time, frustration and second appointment needed for getting a traditional crown. With the latest technology, you can get your crown quick and easy.
