CEREC Lancaster MA - Same Day Crowns & Bridges - Theodore R. Nelson, DDS, PC
Porcelain Crowns in One Visit
One of the most vital dental restorations a patient can receive is a crown. This prosthesis protects the tooth it covers from stress and damage, allowing the original tooth to stay healthy after suffering severe decay or fracture. One of the biggest advancements in dental crown technology is CEREC, a 3D scanning and crown fabrication system that can provide porcelain crowns in one visit.
Dr. Nelson is experienced in the use of CEREC and is proud to offer same-day crowns in Lancaster, Sterling, and Clinton.
Dental Crowns at Your Convenience
Traditionally, a dental crown is fabricated at a dental laboratory, a process that involves two dental visits. The dentist would take impressions of the tooth in the mouth and send them to the laboratory for fabrication. A temporary crown would be placed at the first appointment. Shipping the impressions to the laboratory, and having the crown shipped back, meant a patient could wait around two weeks before having their tooth permanently restored.
CEREC, however, is able to create a crown in one dental visit. Using a computer-assisted design system, our Lancaster dentist can digitally take an accurate picture of teeth to design what your crown should look like. Once the design is complete, Dr. Nelson can use the computer-assisted milling machine to craft the crown immediately. The end result of the process is a beautiful, natural-looking crown applied to the tooth in one visit.
