Dental crowns are an excellent means to restore a tooth that has suffered deep decay, trauma or other extensive damage. A crown is considered a protective “cap” for the affected tooth, allowing it to withstand everyday chewing function without suffering more damage. While traditional dental crowns require messy impressions and weeks of waiting for your crown to be made in an off-site lab, Palmetto Smiles offers a better solution. Our investment in CEREC technology allows us to provide custom, top quality crowns in a single visit!
Our CEREC same day dental crowns are custom fabricated to blend seamlessly with your existing smile. Not only will it fit securely over each crevice and groove of your tooth, but it will also be customized in shape, color and form. Rest assured that just because your permanent crown is ready in one day doesn’t mean you’re sacrificing quality. CEREC crowns are made of high quality materials so that you gain long-lasting results in restorative dentistry.
At Palmetto Smiles, we always respect your time. Our CEREC crowns are just one way that we can implement modern dentistry to eliminate the extra hassle. CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a state-of-the-art approach that uses CAD/CAM technology to create beautiful restorations on the same day, right here in our Charleston office.
Instead of taking a messy and uncomfortable impression of your smile, we can take precise measurements using digital images and CEREC software. Your unique data will be transferred to a computerized machine that mills your permanent dental crown immediately. After placing your crown and performing some minor finishing touches, you will be ready to leave our office with a brand new restoration.
Palmetto Smiles takes pride in our ability to deliver world-class dentistry with maximum convenience. To learn more about the CEREC same day crown process, please call our office. We can’t wait to restore your smile!
