If you've had a dental crown or bridge completed in the past, you know that it was quite a long process. It required two appointments with your dentist–one visit for your dentist to prepare your tooth for its crown and another appointment two to three weeks later for them to place your permanent restoration after it's made at the dental lab. You would also wear a temporary crown during the interim that hopefully wouldn't fall off or break. This was quite a scheduling commitment!
Same-Day Dental Crowns
These days, Dr. King can make a crown for you during one appointment here at our Huntsville dental office with the help of CEREC technology.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, and it uses 3-D technology to scan an image of your tooth directly to a milling machine located in our dental office.
Then, CEREC technology will mill a porcelain crown for you with Dr. King's exact specifications while you wait, which means that you'll leave our dental office the same day with your tooth fully restored.
