Are you searching for a CEREC crowns dentist in the Glendale, Peoria or the Greater Phoenix area? Do you need a crown but dread the prospect of returning again and again to secure a proper fit as you suffer through the discomfort of a temporary crown? Schedule an appointment with AZ Family Dental, where the dentist can build and fit a new CEREC crown in just one visit.
What Is CEREC?
Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, also known as Ceramic Reconstruction or CEREC, is a new technology that allows a properly trained dentist to fit and install a crown in one visit. The CEREC process eliminates the need to fit and wear a temporary crown while a lab constructs the permanent model, saving the patient time and stress. Because the CEREC crown is made entirely from porcelain and contains no metal, this type of crown can be more aesthetically pleasing than other alternatives.
During CEREC the dentist photographs the affected tooth and stores it as a three-dimensional digital model. A software program then designs the appropriate crown using the saved image, which an on-site milling unit then constructs. The dentist fits and applies the new, permanent crown to the patient’s tooth with special dental cement that bonds the crown and tooth together. The entire procedure takes about an hour and a half.
Is CEREC Right for You?
AZ Family Dental specializes in providing expert CEREC care to patients seeking a one-visit crown. Patients who require care but cannot make a significant time investment for returning to the dentist or who find dental appointments stressful may find the CEREC option appealing. In addition, because old-style temporary crowns often feel uncomfortable during the two-week permanent crown construction period, CEREC can help patients eliminate a significant amount of discomfort.
Although CEREC can be completed in one reasonable visit, the use of CEREC technology requires special training. As a result, choosing a dentist properly trained and experienced in this type of tooth restoration is essential. AZ Family Dental is proud to provide the CEREC service to our patients with the quality care they have come to expect through decades of outstanding service.
