Traditionally, getting a crown placed means many visits, often including anesthesia to be complete. For those looking for a faster alternative in New Hyde Park, NY, there is another option. CEREC, or same-day crowns, are a quick alternative to multiple dentist visits.
Just what is CEREC and what are its benefits? Read on to answer that and learn the best place to get CEREC crowns in New Hyde Park.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. It is a sophisticated system of designing and making high quality, metal-free dental restorations in one patient visit. When getting a traditional crown, you need to make many visits to the dentist, temporary teeth and anesthesia are involved, and there’s the hassle of all the time scheduling and taking off work or away from your life to get them.
When getting a same-day crown, all necessary steps are performed in just one dentist visit. The CEREC process is complete in three easy steps! First, a computer captures images of the tooth or teeth needing a crown. Next, the same computer then creates a custom crown in office, without the need for you to leave and come back. The last step is your dentist placing the crown just like any other, except it’s all done the same day.
Aside from the aspect of saving time and eliminating the multiple doctor visits, there are many advantages to a same-day crown over traditional crowns.
