Discover how these same-day restorations can give you a brand new smile in no time.
We all lead busy schedules so it can be a hassle when we realize we have a problem tooth that needs attention. Of course, dental pain and other issues could spell disaster for your smile if left untreated. And now, your Ellicott City dentist Dr. Chetna Desai is making it easier than ever to get dental crowns, inlays and onlays in just one quick visit so you can get on with your life.
What are CEREC crowns?
CEREC crowns may look just like a regular dental crown but they are made with revolutionary 3D technology right here in our Ellicott City dental office. What exactly does that mean for you? This means that you can get a dental restoration in about one hour. These crowns look and function just like traditional crowns and are used to cover damaged teeth to restore function and prevent further damage.
Why choose CEREC over a standard dental crown?
One of the major benefits is the amount of time our patients save when they choose CEREC crowns. Instead of sending your impressions to an outside lab, which can take up to a week for them to make your restoration, you can now get your crown right here in our office. And you won’t even have to take a lot of time out of your schedule as the whole process usually takes no more than one hour to complete.
If you’ve ever needed a dental crown in the past then you may also remember the unpleasant messy molds that were used to take impressions of your teeth. Well, not anymore! With our state-of-the-art CEREC technology we only have to snap some photos with our special camera and the images are instantly uploaded to our computer so we can start designing a crown that will provide a precise fit.
Should I consider getting CEREC crowns?
If you are dealing with a fractured, cracked, discolored or badly misshapen tooth then you could be an ideal candidate for CEREC crowns. However, if you are dealing with a crack or fracture that goes below the gumline then CEREC crowns may not be the right option for you.
