It used to be that getting a new dental crown involved several appointments and a two-week wait. These appointments involved multiple injections, impressions, and getting a temporary crown that didn’t always fit well or look natural.
Today, however, at A Family Dentistry we are pleased to offer our patients the benefits of CEREC same-visit crowns. Creating a CEREC crown at our Sun City Center, FL dental office involves only one visit, and you leave our office the same day with a durable, natural-looking crown.
Unlike crowns fabricated in a dental lab, CEREC technology brings the process right here to our office. Our doctors design your crown by using comfortable digital impressions, without messy paste, of your teeth. Using specialized CEREC software, they create a virtual 3-D model of your new crown and send the information to a milling machine right here in our office.
You can watch in amazement while your new crown is sculpted from a block of porcelain, and within a couple of hours, you will leave with your final crown cemented permanently in place. We can complete the entire process in a little more than two hours.
If you are on a deadline or you just want to avoid the wait involved with a lab crown, please call A Family Dentistry to arrange a convenient dental appointment.
