One Visit Dentistry with CEREC Crowns
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic) is the latest computerized 3D technology that allows Dr. Elliot and Dr. Nick to make custom dental crowns right here in our Suffolk County office. By employing this breakthrough technology, our Rocky Point dentists can give you natural looking and perfectly fitted dental crowns in just one office appointment!
Unlike older tooth restorations, CEREC crowns are so durable and long-lasting they can be used for your back molars and canines. And with CEREC, you won’t need multiple appointments for molds, temporary fittings, or placements that can span over several weeks. Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry offers CEREC same-day crowns for your convenience and comfort.
CEREC crowns Suffolk County
CEREC crowns are crafted from a solid block of porcelain – a metal-free material that is easily tolerated and won’t produce allergic reactions. The material is also translucent and comes in several shades that can mimic your tooth’s natural enamel in appearance and hue.
During your appointment, Dr. Nick or Dr. Elliot will take a series of optical impressions using the CEREC computer, after which a 3-D printer mills the custom fit crown exactly to your specifications. The entire process takes less than 25 minutes and is completed in just one visit here at our Long Island dental practice.
CEREC’s precision 3D system allows us to create a dental crown that will perfectly match your teeth, feel comfortable, and look natural. Forget about temporary crowns, which are prone to cracking and chipping – and take advantage of same day crowns that will last for many years to come!
There are numerous advantages to CEREC crowns, including:
- Time savings – since the crowns are completed in just one visit
- Looks and feels more natural
- Strengthens tooth and preserves original tooth structure
- No messy impressions for temporary crowns
- Faster recovery since less invasive preparations are necessary
- They are durable and can be X-rayed
- CEREC restorations are less prone to cracks or other damage
- No more hot or cold sensitivity since the crowns expand and contract naturally
