CEREC crowns provide effective restorations for conventional crowns for Fremont area patients
The conventional method of repairing a smile with a dental crown is often done over a series of several visits and many weeks. Patients start with a consultation appointment to determine if they require the placement of a dental crown. Once this has been confirmed, their teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel from around the tooth and taking impressions. These impressions are sent to an outside laboratory for the fabrication of the dental crown and patients must wait several weeks before they return for placement. The entire process can be daunting and time-consuming.
Instead, Dr. Munira Lokhandwala wants to provide her patients with restorations as soon as they need them. This is why she invested in the CEREC system in her practice. CEREC is CAD/CAM technology used to mill out porcelain restorations right in the dental office. These precise, strong, effective, and affordable restorations are readily available for patients during the same day as their appointment-saving everyone time and money.
CEREC crowns are restorations used for patients in and around the Fremont area who need to repair a tooth, provide protection for a tooth, or for those who want to cover a tooth after it may have been weakened by root canal therapy or damage. This revolutionary solution can offer patients a faster method of repairing their natural teeth without the long wait and placement of temporary restorations in-between visits. Instead, patients can come into the dental office and receive same-day treatment for their dental concerns.
CEREC crowns are just as durable and long lasting as conventional laboratory-made crowns. They are made with precise measurements thanks to the digitalization of the impressions, which transfer them to the computer and allow a milling device to make the perfect restoration in just about 15-20 minutes. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala can also use the CEREC machine for other porcelain restorations such as inlays, onlays, veneers, and dental bridges.
