Getting a dental crown isn’t what it once was. It’s far less tedious and time-consuming any longer, as advancements in technology make the process much easier to get you the smile you want quicker. Legacy Family Dental uses CEREC Same Day Crown technology, which uses Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) to quickly and accurately create ceramic tooth restorations. This process reduces the number of appointments needed to place a crown, as well as eliminates the hassle of having to take impressions and be fitted for a temporary restoration. Most tooth restorations can be accomplished in a single office visit, which saves you time and money.
- A medical grade computer and camera captures a digital photo of a prepared tooth (eliminating the need for traditional tooth impressions).
- Based on the photo, the computer generates a three-dimensional CAD model of the prepped tooth, which can be used to design a tooth restoration on the computer screen.
- The computer employs the digital model of the tooth restoration and CAM to mill a perfect ceramic tooth while you wait.
- The ceramic restoration is fitted to your prepped tooth in a matter of minutes.
The method can be used to design any single tooth restoration such as crowns, inlays (fillings), onlays (partial crowns), and veneers. It allows the color and shape of the restoration to be custom designed for your specific smile. CEREC Same Day Crowns are just as durable as crowns made in an offsite laboratory, and they are often more accurate due to the advanced computer technology used to create them.
If you’re looking for a quick, convenient, and effective way to restore your beautiful smile CEREC technology is the technology for you.
