Crowns are an integral part of many dental restoration treatments including implants, root canals, or simply covering and strengthening a tooth that’s damaged by trauma or decay, but getting a crown done has traditionally been very inconvenient!
Before now, placing a crown took at least three steps:
1) You needed an appointment to prepare the tooth, make the impression, and place the temporary crown.
2) You needed to wait (possibly two weeks) while your permanent crown was milled (created) at a dental lab, then sent back to us.
3) You needed a SECOND appointment for us to remove the temporary and place your permanent crown.
But now Penrod Dental Care uses CEREC so you can get your permanent crown in just one appointment!
CEREC is new CAD/CAM technology we have here in our office that allows us to mill your new, custom, perfectly crafted permanent crown during ONE VISIT. No need to take more time off work, no temporary crown, and no chance that you may need to be numbed twice.
Here at Penrod Dental Care we make it a priority to provide you—our valued patients and friends—with the best experience possible. One of the ways we achieve that is by keeping ourselves on the leading edge of technology and convenience. So if you’ve been waiting to deal with that crown until it was convenient—it’s time!
Let us know if you have any questions about our CEREC technology and if you know someone who may be interested in one-visit dental crowns as well, let them know about us!
