Here at our practice, we utilize state of the art technology to produce the very best results. One of these modern day services is called a CEREC machine. With a CEREC printer, we can make a crown for a patient the same day that they come into the office.
The procedure is very convenient and straightforward. Once the tooth is prepped, one of our doctors will scan your mouth, as shown in the video above. This intra-oral scanner will take hundreds of photos in an instant and stitch them together, making one large 3-Dimensional model in the system. From there, the doctors design a crown for the machine mill.
The process normally takes 1-2 hours, but you will be able to go home with a permanent crown on your tooth that same day.
