Many people put off going to the dentist or skip treatment altogether due to busy schedules and a limited amount of free time. Getting to the dentist every six months for a checkup and professional cleaning is one thing, but the prospect of setting aside time for two or three appointments to get a dental crown can be daunting for many busy adults. Thanks to improved dental technology, many repairs and treatments can now be completed in a single visit. Dr. Thomas Kemlage and Dr. Andrew Kemlage offer CEREC same day crowns in Fenton, MO.
CEREC Same Day Crowns in Fenton, MO
Traditional crowns typically require two separate appointments: one to take an impression of the tooth and create a mold, which is then sent offsite to an outside lab for production. The second appointment is to fit and place the crown. CEREC (which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) uses digital technology and software to design the crown on a computer, which is then produced onsite through a milling machine.
Benefits of CEREC Same Day Crowns
CEREC crowns offer the same results as traditional crowns, but cut down your wait time to a single visit. Since the restorations are produced at the office while you wait, you will walk out of the office with a new smile in a single visit. If your tooth has recently cracked or fractured, you don't have to wait weeks to fix your smile. Getting a same-day crown also lets you skip the temporary crown while the permanent crown is being produced.
