When it comes to your dental care, you do not always have the time for lengthy or multiple appointments. You need convenient services that do not compromise the final results. At Polished General Dentistry, Dr. Megan A. Shelton understands your struggle, which is why she strives to provide the solutions you need. She embraces the latest technology to allow you to get the restorations you need in just one day. With CEREC same-day dental crowns in our Carlsbad, CA dental office, you will get a high-quality dental crown in one visit.
When a tooth has suffered from significant damage, such as due to tooth decay or an infection, a dental crown provides a layer of protection to restore its health, function, and appearance.
CEREC® transforms the entire process of receiving a restoration using revolutionary technology. Your tooth is prepared just as it would be using the traditional method, but that is where the similarities end. Instead of a messy, foul-tasting impression material, we used 3D scans to create highly detailed images. There is no pain or discomfort—perfect for those with a strong gag reflex or severely damaged teeth.
After we have the impressions, we send the information to our CAD/CAM software, where the specifics for your dental crown are created. We will ensure that it meets your exact size, shape, and color needs to remove any room for error. Once all the details are set, we send the information to our in-office milling machine. It is not sent to an off-site dental lab, saving you valuable time while allowing us to create your restoration with precision and accuracy.
Our milling machine then makes your restoration from a single block of all-ceramic material. In about an hour, it will be finished and ready to be bonded in place. There is no need for a temporary crown or a second appointment. You will walk out of the dental office with the durable, natural-looking restoration that you need in just one day.
Since only one appointment is needed, this also provides a more cost-effective solution. You will not have to pay for impression materials, temporary crowns, or a second appointment.
Now, CEREC provides you with the convenience you need to keep your oral health a priority. Although your restoration is completed in just one appointment, rest assured that it will be of the highest quality. It will provide natural-looking results to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. It will be strong and durable to last for several years with the right aftercare, like maintaining your oral hygiene and regular appointments with your dentist.
If you are ready to experience a higher level of care that accommodates your busy schedule, it is time to see if CEREC technology is right for you. After an initial consultation, Dr. Shelton will create a customized treatment plan to restore your smile.
