If you have ever had a dental crown put in place, you know the inconvenience the process can cause. Multiple appointments, temporary crowns, and uncomfortable molds these have all been eliminated thanks to the advancement of dental technology and, in particular, CEREC same-day dental crowns. If you are in the El Dorado, Arkansas area looking for a dental experience that is convenient, safe, and effective, consider Dr. Paul Burns. Patients in the El Dorado area have been coming into Dr. Burns’ practice to take advantage of the CEREC experience.
With CEREC dental crowns, the need for multiple appointments over several weeks is no longer necessary. When you go to your dentist, they will take digital images of your mouth using a cutting-edge CEREC camera. This camera eliminates the need for sticky, poor-tasting molding material being shoved into your mouth so that a physical impression can be taken. Instead, the CEREC camera sends digital images of your mouth to an on-site computer where your dentist can examine your teeth and gums.
With traditional crowns, a physical mold would need to be sent into an off-site lab so that your dental crown can be made. In the meantime, you would have to go home wearing a temporary crown. Temporary crowns serve their purpose but can sometimes be ill-fitting and uncomfortable. You would have to wait a few weeks for your crown to be sent to your dentist, at which time you would return to have the temporary removed and the permanent crown placed.
This entire process is eliminated thanks to CEREC equipment. Your digital images are sent to an in-office machine where Dr. Burns will create your crown from a block of porcelain. The crown will be made quickly and placed, all within the same appointment!
The convenience of CEREC dental crowns, as Dr. Paul Burns offers, is unparalleled. If you are interested in learning more or need to schedule an appointment to have a CEREC crown placed, please call and schedule an appointment at (870) 686-4232.
