Fort Myers CEREC Same Day Crowns
Crowns or caps as they are sometimes called cover the tooth entirely and restore its form, function and appearance. It protects the tooth and prevents it from breaking in cases where fillings are not possible. A well made crown should last for many years but like anything that is in constant use, crowns may need to be replaced. Good oral hygiene and regular dental check ups help prolong the life of dental restorations.
We utilize CEREC CAD-CAM technology to fabricate same day crowns at our office. Benefits of using the technology include: less chair time for the patient, no temporaries (for most cases), more comfort, and a more precise final product. We also use this technology to scan for some removable appliances- like night guards and orthodontic aligner trays. Ask our team how this technology could benefit you.
Cerec is a CAD CAM system in which you scan the tooth and we do not have to use impression material as is done usually. Our same day crowns are made the same day that way the patient saves time. They also do not have to deal with temporary crowns and wait for 2 weeks before the final crown comes back from the lab. Crowns are always needed after a tooth has a root canal to prevent the tooth from breaking. They may be needed if a tooth is broken, has extensive decay or large old leaky fillings.
