Save Time with CEREC One-Day Crowns

  • February 8, 2014

Do you have a broken tooth that has been bothering you for some time now? You’ve already accidentally cut your tongue because of it and you’re also quite hesitant to smile because your broken tooth shows. Your dentist said repairing it with a crown will take a few appointments and you’d have to take time off from your very busy work schedule and spend your valuable vacation days in the dental clinic if you are ever going to see it get done.

Fortunately, there’s Columbia SC dentist Dr. Doug Forbes of the Total Dental Care of South Carolina who can make that much needed crown in less time. In fact, he will only need one day out of your hectic life to fit you with innovative CEREC crowns, a dental restoration that uses computer-assisted technologies of 3D imaging and CAD/CAM to make a crown in just one sitting in the dentist’s chair.

Multiple visits are condensed into a single appointment, thanks to this revolutionary new technique. The messy impression-taking is replaced by the quick powder-spraying of your broken tooth with the contrast medium before it gets photographed by a 3D imaging camera. The resulting image is then uploaded into the proprietary CEREC software to come up with the restoration design that will be fed to the milling machine right inside the facility that will produce the crown out of high-quality ceramic.

The in-house milling unit takes away the downtime that comes with working with an outside dental lab in the case of traditional crowns. In a matter of just a few minutes, your broken tooth will be a thing of the past, restored with a natural-looking tooth restoration that matches the rest of your teeth. In no time at all, Dr. Forbes will have you walking out of his clinic, with a brand new smile.
