How can my crown be completed in one appointment?
At Centennial Smiles, we use CAD/CAM technology to digitally scan and create a durable and aesthetic ceramic crown in one appointment. This eliminates the need to wait for a final restoration from a dental lab, which can take two to three weeks. For patients who want both quality and convenience, CEREC is a practical alternative. Dr Andrew Dunn orchestrates the entire process from beginning to end, ensuring quality and accuracy every step of the way. We transfer this information into our in-house robotic crown creation machine that mills the crown from a single piece of high-quality ceramic.
Dr Dunn will match the crown to the surrounding teeth. He will make final adjustments to the surface of the crown so that teeth bite together comfortably and function well for chewing. You can treat your crown very much like a natural tooth – keep it clean, take good care of the gum tissue and be sure to maintain your regular dental hygienist appointments.
