If you have a damaged tooth, due either to injury or infection, you may need a crown in order to restore your smile. Traditional crowns took multiple dental appointments for dentists to complete. Our Mount Prospect dentist office realized that this simply is not suitable for many patients, which is why we are proud to offer CEREC crowns right here in our office.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. CEREC technology allows our dentist to craft and place your crown in just one dental appointment. Rather than having an outside laboratory craft your dental crown, we are able to craft your crown to your specifications right here in our office.
CEREC crown technology offers a number of advantages for patients of many ages, including:
· Immediate treatment—CEREC crowns allow you to get the restorative dentistry treatments that you need exactly when you need them.
· Natural looking results—CEREC crowns are milled out of stable and luminous porcelain. So once your crown is in place, it will be a white, bright, and natural addition to your smile.
· Avoid temporary crowns—temporary crowns are makeshift restorations that patients have to wear in the time between the patient’s first dental appointment, and the time when the final crown is complete. Because CEREC allows our dentist to prep your tooth and place your final crown in just one appointment, you will not have to wear a temporary crown at all.
CEREC technology delivers attractive and health-promoting results that fit into your timeline. Our Mount Prospect CEREC dentist office will give you all of the information that you need about this exciting treatment when you contact our dental team.
