Previously, when you needed a crown (also called a cap), you had one dental visit to take a impression of your tooth. That process was messy and uncomfortable. Once the impression was taken, it was sent to a lab, where your crown was created and then sent to your dentist. In the interim, your tooth, after treatment, was covered by a temporary crown until the final one was finished. Yet another visit was required to have your tooth completely prepared and the final crown fitted.
Victor Dental Care offers one-visit crowns with CAD/CAM digital technology to create a 3D digital image of your teeth. CEREC® then mills the crown based on the plan created by your dentist. One visit and your new crown is planned, created, and placed!
CEREC® also allows us to create veneers and tooth-colored ceramic fillings right in the office. You can have these restorations quickly, easily, and without impressions! We think you’ll enjoy the saved time and the natural look of these restorations. We appreciate the ability to use a conservative treatment that allows us to leave more of your natural tooth in place. Everybody is happy with CEREC®!
