You live a busy life as you uphold your daily commitments. You do not have time for long, lengthy dental procedures added into your schedule. As a result, when your dentist in Carmel tells you that you need a dental crown, your first thought is often of the hassle you are going to have to endure. However, Dr. David J. Kristoff offers a simpler, convenient approach because he understands that your time is valuable. We use CEREC technology to give you a high-quality restoration in just one day.
Save Time with One-Day Crowns
In the past, the process to receive a dental crown required two appointments. During your first visit, your tooth would be prepared and messy, foul-tasting impressions were done. Then, a temporary restoration would be attached because the impressions would have to be sent to an off-site dental lab. After it was sent back to the dental office, you would need to come in for a second appointment to have it bonded to your tooth. With CEREC, you no longer need a temporary crown or second appointment. We handle the entire process in our office to save you time and money.
Choose the Convenience Of CEREC
Using CEREC technology, the entire process to receive a restoration is simplified without compromising the quality of the results. After your tooth is prepared, we do not use traditional impressions. Instead, we take digital 3D scans. This provides us with highly detailed images to create the crown to meet your exact specifications, eliminating any time-consuming errors. Not to mention, digital impressions are comfortable and painless.
We send the images to our CAD/CAM software. Here, we create the specifics of your crown to ensure it meets your exact needs. It will be made to match your exact size and shape measurements. In addition, we will customize its color to match your enamel so no one will be able to tell that it is not your natural tooth.
The information is sent to the in-office milling machine. It uses a single block of ceramic material to create the restoration in about an hour. Finally, it is bonded to your tooth so you can walk out of our office with a flawless smile. You will not need to come back for a second appointment.
Benefit from High-Quality Results
Although the restorations are made in about an hour, you still benefit from a high-quality crown. It will be strong and durable to last for several years if you maintain your oral hygiene and care for it properly. It will look and function like a natural tooth because it is made from all-ceramic material. Not only do you gain a natural-looking restoration, but you do not have to worry about a gray line developing at the gum line over time like that of a metal crown.
