The Crown that your teeth deserve !
Imagine you could have a crown or a veneer in one visit. CEREC makes exactly this possible. CEREC stands for speed and a comfortable treatment without impression tray, without annoying provisional and with only one injection. A win-win situation: Less time taken off work and the patient get to have the best treatment.
With over hundreds of CEREC crowns successfully were made and placed, our dentists in Watertown practice are trained to give you the best experience possible.
Here is how the CEREC machine works:
Using a specialized 3D camera, the dentist will first scan the inside of your mouth, to be able to see a complete view of the condition of your teeth.
Next, the computer will design a crown based on your scanned photo. Your customized design will get sent to the CEREC milling machine, and gets constructed right in our office.
Finally, the crown gets fitted into your tooth to match perfectly with your natural smile, and you walk out within one hour and a half!
Conventional crowns take a minimum of two visits to get a crown; the first visit usually consists of getting anesthesia and an impression. A temporary crown is placed until the dental laboratory creates a permanent crown. On your second visit, your permanent crown will be adjusted and then permanently cemented it into place.
There are some cases where the crown that comes back from the lab doesn’t fit properly and a second impression must be taken. Your crown would essentially be sent back for re-adjustments, and you’d have to schedule a third office visit. With Professional Dental Image and CEREC technology, we don’t waste your valuable time!
