Stony Plain Dental Centre Offers Dental Crowns in a Day
Many people find themselves needing dental crowns in order to restore the appearance of their smile. The family and cosmetic dentists at Stony Plain, AB, offers their patients, crowns made in a day. CEREC crowns are made using chair-side 3-D, CAD software technology. The CEREC system allows the dentist to take images of your damaged tooth with a dental laser, which sends the images straight to our in-office machine. The machine then creates the crown within about an hour.
Offering same day crowns in Stony Plain gives patients a sense of convenience that traditional crowns do not as CEREC crowns are ready same day.
What is the difference between traditional crowns and CEREC crowns?
Traditional crowns require at least two office visits. During the first visit, your dentist will prepare the tooth for the crown, take impressions and give you a temporary crown. Your second appointment will occur a few weeks later after the crown has been fabricated at a lab. The dentist must then take the temporary crown off and cement the permanent crown on. Unlike the old crown technology, receiving our CEREC crowns only take one office visit, no impressions, and are created while you wait.
Not only are Stony Plain crowns in-a-day convenient, but they are also exceptionally aesthetic and durable. The metal-free ceramic crowns are made of lithium disilicate, which is an extremely strong material. The lack of metal leaves no risk of a grey margin appearing, which often happens with traditional crowns.
