Advances in dental technology have provided dentists with treatments that virtually transform the lives of our patients. Whether they involve correcting a common cosmetic dental problem or using new technology to prevent serious periodontal disease, our Mount Prospect CERECS dentist can address patient concerns easily and efficiently.
An added benefit to the patient is the convenience that these state-of-the-art treatments offer. Many treatments that used to require multiple appointments and lengthy office visits can now be done in only one sitting.
Disadvantages of Traditional Crowns
CEREC (Ceramic Reconstruction) dental crowns are a great example of how new technology streamlines treatment. The usual process for placing a traditional dental crown requires two appointments at your dentist’s office. The first appointment involves removal of some of the existing tooth structure so that an impression can be taken.
Next, our skilled dentist fits you for a temporary crown that you will wear for several weeks while the permanent crown is fabricated at a dental lab. Then you will return to our office so we can place the permanent crown. This process is not only time-consuming, but many people experience problems with their temporary crown.
Convenient CEREC Crowns
But CEREC crowns allow you to avoid lengthy process associated with traditional crowns. CEREC crowns look natural, are just as durable as traditional crowns. The real benefit, though, is that CEREC crowns are placed in one single visit to our Mount Prospect CEREC S dental office.
We fabricate your new crown right in our office while you wait. You do not need a temporary crown, and you leave our office with a beautiful, natural-looking dental restoration.
We mill our one-visit crowns out of pure porcelain to create a beautiful restoration that is stain resistant and durable. Another benefit of CEREC crowns is that, unlike traditional crowns, they contain no metal, so they look naturally white and blend in beautifully with your natural teeth.
