At Paradise Dental, we are always looking for ways to improve your experience for any dental procedure you need. We understand that you might not have enough time to come back to the dentist for multiple appointments even for something like a dental crown. At our innovative dental office in Salem, MA we are offering same day crowns.
With our CEREC technology, we can offer single-visit tooth restorations. If you lose a tooth or part of a tooth a change in your bite alignment can happen which will negatively affect your dental health. Using CEREC technology we can customize your crown in one appointment right in our office.
What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic and the machine uses computer aids/assistants to restore any damage on your teeth. This machine can give you a more natural looking smile where you wouldn’t even know that the tooth isn’t yours. These teeth are made to last and will be able to be used just like your natural teeth.
How CEREC works
If your dentist suggests getting a crown from our CEREC machine because of tooth decay, you may have to go under a local anaesthetic before the tooth is prepared. All the tooth decay will be removed and then your tooth will be prepared to be able to support the crown. Next, the CEREC machine will take an optical impression of your teeth and transform those impressions into digital images. CEREC machine uses the computer-assisted design and computer-aided manufacturing to form a 3D rendering of the crown. From those 3D renderings, your teeth will be color matched to match the rest of your teeth. Then your tooth is made, polished, and placed in the mouth.
What are the benefits of the CEREC machine?
Other than you get your crown in one visit to the dentist, there are other benefits from getting a crown from our CEREC machine:
- Comfort. Since you will be getting your crown during the same dental appointment, you won’t need a temporary crown which can inflame and irritate your gums.
- Look. Our technology makes crowns with the highest quality materials and will match your crown to the same color of your other teeth. They will look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.
- Strength. Unlike traditional materials that were used to make crowns, the materials that the CEREC requires is cutting edge which is stronger than what was used before. This will give you stronger teeth that are longer lasting.
