The Benefits of CEREC® vs. Traditional Crowns
With great advances in dental technology, patients no longer have to wait days to have their cracked, chipped, or damaged teeth repaired. Dr. Joe Jeppson offers same-day crowns using CEREC® technology for patients looking to have their teeth fixed quickly, yet still effectively. The fast restoration is just one of the benefits of having your tooth repaired with CEREC® vs. traditional crowns. If you have a damaged tooth, our office in Provo, UT, can repair it in one visit with a high-quality solution that is durable and designed to last.
Repairs Completed in a Single Visit
While both same-day crowns and traditional crowns offer different benefits, there are times when a quick restoration is preferred. If you have a special occasion such as a wedding or reunion approaching and do not have the time to make the multiple visits, a CEREC® restoration may be your best option. During the day of your appointment, your crown will be created by our in-office computerized milling system while you wait comfortably. Within a single visit, the precision of the technology will allow for Dr. Jeppson to place the custom-crafted crown precisely over your tooth to blend seamlessly with your smile.
Quick and Comfortable
If you have cracked or chipped your tooth, you understand how it can make it embarrassing to smile or uncomfortable to bite and chew. With a traditional treatment, patients typically have to wait a couple of weeks before having their permanent crown placed. During this time, patients wear a temporary crown made from plastic that is attached with temporary cement to keep it in place. As a result, patients may experience a bit of discomfort during this waiting period. During your second visit, the permanent crown will be placed, polished, and adjusted.
As opposed to the traditional treatment, the same-day crown treatment consists of having a 3D image of your tooth prepared and fed directly into the CEREC® system. At this time, you can relax in our office, and within a very short period of time, the crown will be created from a block of porcelain. Dr. Jeppson can immediately place and adjust your crown, and you can leave our office with a confident and complete smile.
