Conventional dental crowns are fitted in two sittings with the dentist.
The first sitting involves tooth preparation and placement of a temporary crown. The second sitting comes a few days later when the dental crown has been produced in the laboratory. However, this two-sitting procedure can be cumbersome for many people who are hard-pressed for time, or who do not wish to spend a lot of time at the dentist's office.
Now there is an advanced technology in dental crowns known as CEREC crowns. With this technology, it is possible to have the crown placed in a single appointment with the dentist. StarBrite Dental specializes in providing CEREC crowns and Dr. Munira is a recognized expert for CEREC crown treatment.
There is a special CEREC machine that allows Dr. Munira to create a digital image of the prepared tooth, and a customized crown is designed with its help. Thereafter, the design data is sent to a milling machine, which produces the perfect ceramic crown with the given specifications.
Once the crown is ready, Dr. Munira can place the crown over the prepared tooth. Therefore, the entire procedure is easily and efficiently accomplished in only one sitting.
Advantages of CEREC Crowns
CEREC is a much more efficient and speedy alternative to traditional crowns.
It eliminates the need for two visits to the dentist's office, two applications of anesthesia, two occasions of leave from work, and avoids the need for wearing temporary crowns. It also saves the expense of a lab technician and a second visit to the dentist. In terms of quality, CEREC crowns are very strong and durable. Since it does not use any metal, the CEREC crown is also aesthetically appealing.
StarBrite Dental is one of the foremost dental practices in East Bay offering one-sitting dental crowns. They also offer various financing options to facilitate patients and make the procedure more affordable for everyone.
