Of all of the dentistry procedures, the most dreaded has to be the root canal and the placement of crowns. While it sounds majestic, anyone who has had a traditional crown can testify there is nothing royal about it. The traditional procedure for creating and placing dental crowns is long, complex, and often requires numerous visits to the office for messy impressions and later, fittings. Thankfully, the introduction of CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic crowns, has revolutionized how this procedure can be done for the benefit of the patient.
It doesn’t matter what kind of dental work it is, everyone is concerned about the final appearance. With CEREC, there is no need to worry about visible metal fillings or anything that will unnatural to family and friends. CEREC crowns are made from porcelain specially chosen to match the color of your existing teeth, so no worries about keeping your smile hidden because of unsightly dental appliances. An added bonus not to be forgotten is the new crown feels like your teeth as well.
In addition to their invisible appearance, CEREC crowns and their placement are more convenient than the traditional method. With in -office equipment, Dr. Wachspress and his team are able to take 3D impressions of the tooth to be replaced and create it while the patient waits. Then, the new crown is placed and the process completed. So, instead of repeated visits to the office, you can be ready and out the door in only one visit.
If it’s time to preserve your smile and dental health, and the idea of doing so in comfort, convenience, and receiving a custom crown sounds appealing to you, make your appointment with Dr. Wachspress and his staff, and get ready to enjoy the benefits of modern dentistry and CEREC.
