At TerraGreen Dental, my team and I understand how important the health of your mouth is to you, but we also understand as busy people, your time is every bit as important. For this very reason we utilize CEREC technology to provide single visit crowns, veneers, implants and bridges. The days of 2 visit crowns and bridges where the patient has to wear a temporary are over!!! No more having to wait for your new crown or bridge. With CEREC technology we can make your crown, bridge or veneers in 1 appointment….OH AND NO GOOPY GAGGY IMPRESSIONS!!!
If you’ve ever had a crown, bridge or veneer done, you know the process is cumbersome and time consuming. Before CEREC technology the tooth getting a crown would need to be prepared, an impression or mold would need to be taken and a temporary crown made to prevent sensitivity and drifting of the tooth. At that point it was 4-7 days until the crown was made at the lab and back in the office and ready for cementation.
However, a CEREC crown eliminates all of the time lag and is done with minimal discomfort. CEREC technology uses a 3D computer image of your teeth to build a new crown which is milled in our office out of a solid ceramic block. Because we are able to digitally build your crown, we are able to fit and cement your crown with virtually no adjustments needed. All in an about an hour and a half!!! Single visit dentistry is the most comfortable and efficient way dental work is done.
People often ask about durability of CEREC crowns, veneers and bridges. We are using the very same materials and technology that our labs are using to fabricate crowns. There is absolutely no difference in durability of a “same day” crown vs. a conventional crown, in fact it’s better.
My team and I strive to provide excellent service by investing in new technology and keeping up with new advancements in the field of dentistry.
