Dentist in White Lake Bear area is excited to offer crowns in one visit with CEREC technology
Dental crowns are common dental procedures performed in many dental practices. This restoration is commonly done to provide a layer of protection for a weak or susceptible tooth. Dentists may suggest this procedure when patients have a tooth that has experienced injury, disease, infection, or even root canal therapy.
Dental crowns are porcelain restorations known as “caps” that are bonded to the top of a tooth to cover it. This may be performed due to damage to the tooth or imperfections such as permanent staining. A crown maintains the structure of a tooth and protects it all at the same time.
Dr. Johnson is here to help patients with their general and restorative dental needs. However, she is one of few dentists in the area who offer same-day dentistry solutions. Dental crowns created in her practice are fabricated using the latest technology! A CEREC machine is a dedicated machine for milling out porcelain restorations for patients in a dental practice. It is used for dental crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, and onlays. It allows the dentist the opportunity to input precise, digital impressions of a tooth and mill a new restoration right in the dental office. This saves everyone time and money while providing strong, effective restorations for patients while they wait.
Crowns made from CEREC technology are just as durable as those made in a laboratory with a ceramist. However, it eliminates the need for placing a temporary crown while patients wait a week or longer for their new restoration. It also keeps patients from having to schedule a second appointment for the bonding of the crown. All in one stay in the dental chair, patients can go from start to finish with their restorative dentistry procedure.
