When the dentist says you need a crown, which sounds worse? Scheduling multiple dental appointments, enduring those messy and sometimes awful tasting impressions or wearing a temporary crown until a permanent one is ready?
At Sedalia Dental, we know that life is busy and finding time for dental visits can be a daunting task. That’s why we’ve made it possible to get in and out of the dental office in one day with your new crown.
CEREC “One-Day” Crowns from Your Columbus Dentist
CEREC’s advanced CAD/CAM technology allows our doctors to design, fabricate and cement a custom, color-matched and durable ceramic porcelain crown in a single visit. A traditional crown takes two visits about two weeks apart and requires impressions, temporaries and wasted time making trips back and forth to the office.
Tooth preparation is the same as a traditional crown. The difference begins with the impressions. There are no messy impressions as with a traditional crown—the tooth is optically scanned for the computer. Then all you have to do is sit back, relax and wait while the computer designs and manufactures your new crown. It will be ready in about twenty minutes, and we’ll cement it in place so you can get back to your normal activities.
