At Marietta Smiles, we want to improve every aspect of getting the general dental care you need. Our team utilizes the latest dental technology to give you and your family efficient and comfortable care during your dental appointments. We have invested in CEREC technology to give our patients access to beautiful, protective dental crowns in just one visit to our office. Same day crowns save you time during your tooth repairs and restorations.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This advanced technology allows our team to design and create new ceramic dental crowns in our office. This improved option is quicker and more comfortable for our patients than the traditional lab-created crowns that many dental offices offer.
Dental crowns are used for tooth repairs, dental implants, dental bridges and other dental restorations. Ceramic crowns designed and milled using CEREC can be color-matched to your smile, creating a natural-appearing covering for your damaged tooth or dental restoration. You can have a durable, beautiful crown made in one day, helping improve your dental experience.
Why Wait? Get Your Crowns in One Visit!
The traditional dental crown procedure can take up to 2-3 weeks and a few visits to the dental office to complete. An impression must be made of the tooth, which can be slightly uncomfortable. The impression is sent to a dental lab; in the meantime, you must be fitted for and wear a temporary crown until the new crown comes back from the lab.
With CEREC, everything to make the new crown can be done in about one hour at our office. The advanced CAD/CAM technology creates a 3D image of your tooth – no impressions are needed. The milling equipment uses the image to create your new crown on the spot. You leave the same day with your new, permanent crown in place.
Marietta Smiles is your source for dental excellence, including same day dental crowns. We accept most dental plans and have convenient payment options. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment.
