They're faster and better. That's how we describe same-day dental crowns. Created and placed in a single visit by your dentist in his Marietta, GA, office, CEREC crowns restore teeth beautifully. Dr. Casey Hart is proud to offer them to qualified patients. Here's more.
Do you need a dental crown?
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap made of quality, dental-grade porcelain. It fits over your tooth, restoring its color, shape, size and strength. Porcelain crowns finish dental implants and teeth healed by root canal therapy, too. Most often, they protect cracked, chipped or heavily decayed or restored teeth.
At his Marietta, GA, office, Dr. D. Casey Hart examines teeth to determine their suitability for crown restoration. If your tooth is a candidate, you should receive a same-day crown, coming into the office and leaving with your restoration in place in just about two hours or less.
The treatment involves a local anesthetic to make you completely comfortable. Then, Dr. Hart removes the damaged areas and prepares the tooth so it can receive its crown. Next, the CEREC magic begins.
CEREC is the abbreviation for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. In short, your dentist uses computerized design and manufacturing processes to create your crown.
Even oral impressions are digital. That means no messy impression putty or awkward trays. Plus, your dentist prefers the precision of three-dimensional images.
The CEREC machine mills the crown in about 20 minutes. When Dr. Hart removes it, he may add some coloration as needed. Then, he bonds the crown over your tooth. You're done.
Other reasons to prefer same-day crowns
1. Your new crown looks realistic, and it's durable. Modern dental ceramics flex as you eat, and they're plaque-resistant.
2. Your CEREC crown should last for many years. As with any dental restoration, longevity depends on your diligent hygiene practices and the stresses you expose your crown to.
3. Same-day processes avoid extra trips to the dental office, saving you gas money and time off from work. Plus, you don't have to wear a temporary crown.
