CEREC means one trip to the dentist...not two.
As much as we try to make going to the dentist as enjoyable as possible, we know people don't want to go any more than they have to. That's why we're a CEREC-certified dental office. Crowns are very common procedures that used to be very inconvenient for patients. Not anymore.
THERE ARE LOTS of reasons you might need a crown. They include but aren't limited to:
- Restore a broken tooth
- Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
- Make a discolored or poorly shaped tooth look better
- Replace a large filling when there isn't enough tooth remaining
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
- Cover a dental implant
IN THE OLD DAYS when you needed a crown, it meant two, long trips to the dentist. One trip to reshape the tooth, take a mold, and put on a temporary crown to be replaced later. Then the dentist would send that mold to a facility to have your crown made. Once the new crown mold was ready, it was delivered to your dentist. Then you'd come back to the dentist to have the temporary crown removed and the permanent crown installed. TWO TRIPS. TWICE THE INCONVENIENCE. We can do much, much better.
TODAY IT'S MUCH EASIER Thanks to advances in technology and extensive training of the Slate Run Dental staff, all of this can now be done in a single, convenient visit. We have a CEREC machine right in our office that will make your permanent crown while you wait a short time in our office. Our patients love that their damaged tooth is completely ready for many years of use after just one trip to the dentist.
SO DON'T BE AFRAID when you hear that you need to have a crown done at Slate Run Dental. We'll have you taken care of after just one trip to the dentists. Call today for an appointment and we'll do our best to make your trip to the dentist convenient and even enjoyable.
