Now you can restore a tooth in just one dental visit.

When it comes to getting restorative dental care, time is truly of the essence; however, our Trinity, FL, dentist Dr. James Lewis also understands that you lead a busy life and that it’s difficult to take several days off work in order to get the care you need. Thanks to CEREC technology, now patients won’t have to worry that their dental appointment will affect their schedule. Now you can get a brand new dental crown is just a single visit.

How does CEREC work?

CEREC makes it possible to do everything, from measuring your tooth to designing, making and placing the crown, all in a single appointment. CEREC, which stands for chairside restoration of esthetic ceramics allows our New Port Richey, FL, dentist the ability to create dental crowns in his office.

We take images of your teeth, map out the type of crown we want and then use our milling station to carve out your restoration from a porcelain block. From start to finish, it can take anywhere from five to 20 minutes for the machine to make your custom crown. Then the crown is placed over the tooth to check the fit and bite before being cemented into place.

Why choose CEREC crowns?

Getting CEREC crowns certainly offers a significant advantage over the traditional way of getting dental crowns. If you are deemed a candidate for CEREC crowns then this will be the fastest way to restore your smile, saving you a substantial amount of time. Here are some of the benefits of getting CEREC crowns,

  • We have the tools and software to measure the precise size and length of your tooth. These precise measurements ensure that you get a crown that fits just perfectly and feels as great as it looks.
  • Since these crowns are made right here in our office we won’t need to turn to an outside dental lab, which can take weeks to make your crown.
  • This advanced technology allows our dentist to get rid of those messy and awkward putty-like impressions. In a matter of minutes, we can take digital scans of your teeth, which are immediately uploaded into computer images. From there we can get to work designing the perfect crown using specialized CAD software.
  • Restore a cracked, broken, weak, decayed or severely discolored tooth with a crown that mimics the look and feel of a real tooth.
  • CEREC technology allows our patients to get their permanent crown the very same day so they don’t have to wear a flimsy and often bulky temporary crown for multiple weeks.

If you are dealing with a damaged tooth or want to learn more about how CEREC crowns could benefit you then call our dental practice today at (727) 372-7887. We provide comprehensive dental care to the New Port Richey and Trinity, FL, areas.
