Traditional crowns used to take two or more visits to the dentist. They involved taking a mold of your teeth using a gooey impression that was often uncomfortable. Before you left the office, you would be given a temporary crown that could sometimes fit awkwardly in your mouth. Then, you would have to wait a week or longer to receive your custom-made dental crowns. It could be an arduous process.
With the new, innovative CEREC machine, Dr. Bigelow can create your customized crown in just a single appointment! CEREC stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.” It is a revolutionary device that can fashion customized dental crowns in less than two hours. Using the CEREC machine, you won’t have to take a sticky impression of your teeth either, providing you optimal comfort.
Dr. Bigelow can create a customized crown for you to help fortify your tooth in size, shape, and function. A dental crown can strengthen your smile by protecting your tooth from harmful outside factors, like plaque and bacteria. With a dental crown, you should be less likely to develop more cavities on the affected tooth. A dental crown will also provide support for your surrounding teeth, so they don’t have to take on as much stress when chewing.
A dental crown can improve the way your smile looks. Dental crowns can be used to fill the gaps in your smile, giving you a complete set of functional teeth. Your dental crown will be colored to match the rest of your teeth, so it should blend in seamlessly with your smile! You can have a full, alluring smile with dental crowns!
