Are Dental Crowns in One Visit Really Possible?

Stay Hydrated in WinterFor deep decay that infiltrates your dental pulp, you may require root canal therapy. The process usually takes two visits. Unfortunately, the wait time between appointments is for the fabrication of a customized crown. This can be irritating as you sport a temporary crown that doesn’t fit well and may even fall off. Farmington Hills dentist, Dr. Aziza Askari, has embraced technology for the convenience of her patients, however. If you want a faster crown, consider one-visit crown technology by the name of CEREC.

Defining CEREC

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic. The system is quite innovative, including computer design tools and software as well as a built in milling machine. CEREC allows Dr. Askari to provide you with high-quality ceramic dental crowns in a single appointment. You are measured, prepped, fitted, bonded, and polished in a matter of hours. You’ll leave the office with a natural looking crown which has been color-matched to your surrounding teeth. CEREC is minimally invasive, cost effective, time saving, comfortable, allows us to save more of your natural tooth structure, and provides you with an attractive and long lasting restoration.

Further Explanation of What to Expect

A dental crown always starts with prepping the decayed tooth. Whether you opt for a traditional dental crown or a chairside crown, infection removal is first and foremost. An opening in your tooth is made so that proper cleaning of germs can take place. With CEREC, impressions are taken with infrared wavelengths. Dr. Askari looks at the images on the computer screen, giving her a multiple angle view of your infected tooth and roots. The customized crown is designed and the specifications are input. The milling unit will produce a strong, attractive ceramic dental crown in just 15 minutes. We utilize dental cement to bond your new crown to the remains of your natural tooth,
