Dental crowns are beneficial in restoring and saving damaged teeth or in improving the appearance of one that is cosmetically displeasing. The only negative aspect, up until recently at least, is that you had to make more than one trip to our office so that you could get a crown completed. However, with our CEREC crowns in Springfield, we at Alexandria Center of Dentistry can do all of the work in just a single session. This will save you valuable time by eliminating a second appointment entirely, not to mention the travel time back and forth. And no impressions are needed, so you won’t have to deal with the messiness and inconvenience that are associated with that part of the process.
So we’ve established that our CEREC crowns in Springfield are easier for you, our valued patient. But that’s not the only benefit they provide. They are more natural looking than typical crowns, blending in thanks to being made from ceramic that matches your natural teeth ideally. Ceramic is also more resistant to plaque, giving you an advantage when it comes to avoiding tooth decay and gum disease. Ceramic is also anti-abrasive. The process of getting our CEREC crowns in Springfield starts with taking a photo of the tooth, instead of an impression. Computer aided design (CAD) technology is then used to design your new crown based on the photo taken. The crown is then produced right here at our office with computer aided manufacturing (CAM). The result is a crown that fits you with the utmost of precision. Custom stain and glaze is then applied before the crown is applied to your tooth with strong adhesive.
It has never been easier and more efficient to get a dental crown done than it is now. Just call us and schedule an appointment to get your tooth restoration in one brief visit.
