Learn more about getting same-day crowns from your Oconomowoc, WI dentist.

With the holidays fast approaching, let’s offer up this scenario: You’re wrapping presents. The Dental Crownsfireplace is roaring and you’re nestled in your holiday sweater listening to festive tunes. Your sweet tooth starts to nag you and you grab for a candy cane. While enjoying the soothing peppermint you hear an unpleasant crunch, and it isn’t the satisfying crunch of that sugary treat but rather your tooth. Of course, if the crack is bad enough, your dentist will have to place a dental crown on your tooth. In the past, these traditional crowns required multiple visits, which could be rather inconvenient. However, your Oconomowoc, WI dentist now offers CEREC crowns, so you can get your dental crown in only one visit.

What is a CEREC crown?
A CEREC crown is an artificial ceramic tooth that is created in a single visit by your dentist through the use of CAD/CAM technology. Just like with traditional crowns, CEREC crowns are also used to restore teeth that are damaged because of severe decay or trauma.

How can I get a CEREC crown in only one visit?
You have the CAD/CAM technology to thank for getting a dental crown in only a single visit. Instead of taking impressions of your tooth with a mold, we use a small handheld Blu-ray camera that snaps 3D pictures of your tooth. These images are immediately uploaded onto the computer, where your Oconomowoc dentist uses the CAD software to design a crown that offers the ideal shape, color and length needed to match your bite.
Once the design phase is complete, the CAM technology will fabricate the crown right there in our office. Once your dental crown is fully finished, we will bond it to your tooth to restore it.

Is a CEREC crown different from regular dental crowns?
Since we’ve done away with the dental molds and now use technology that can take 3D images of your smile, we are able to promise a dental crown that fits better and looks even more like a natural tooth. Plus, you don’t have to wait weeks for your crown to be fabricated.

Would a CEREC crown be a good option for me?
While CEREC crowns are a great way to restore many patients’ smiles, it’s not always the best option for everyone. Patients whose tooth is cracked below the gum line won’t be able to benefit from CEREC crowns.

However, the best way to find out if CEREC crowns in Oconomowoc are right for you is to call your cosmetic dentist today to schedule a complimentary consultation. We would be happy to talk to you about our incredible technology and what it could do for your smile.

If you want to find out more about CEREC crowns or if you have a dental emergency like a fractured tooth, then you need to call your Oconomowoc, WI dentist.
