The fish almost look like they are flying as they gently gliding through the water. Do they even notice the water, you wonder, or is it like us when we walk through air? You’re daydreaming again as you saunter from one colorful creature to another. Your watch tells you that the aquarium is about to close, so you head outside. Now comes the hard part of your day: dinner. You broke a tooth a few days ago and haven’t had time to get it fixed. How much time does it even take? I can’t take another week of this, you think. Luck is on your side, because you can now get same day crowns in Scarborough with Dr. Amaro.
The Traditional Way to Get A Dental Crown
In the past, the process to have a crown put on a tooth lasted roughly over a week. You initially would have to visit the dentist’s office, let them take a mold of your teeth, wait a week for a separate lab to fabricate it, and then pay another visit to have it installed. The interim week would see you wearing a fake crown, hoping it could last until you get your real one. Dentistry has vastly refined this process thanks to something called CEREC.
The Modern Way to Get A Crown with CEREC
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction. This process holds key advantages over the traditional method of getting crowns because it utilizes the most cutting-edge dental technology available. Some of those advantages are:
- Using a digital scan of your mouth, which is less invasive than a plastic mold
- Using CAD/CAM technology to precisely design your custom ceramic crown
- Constructing your crown using a high-quality, nearly chip proof ceramic material
- Using an in house milling machine to immediate fabricate your crown
- All done is one visit
Dr. Amaro will then install your new crown and you can be on your way. The entire procedure can be performed while you remain in the dentist’s chair. Not only is it faster, usually taking about an hour from start to finish, but the use of digital technology ensures a more accurate, customized result. This type of speed is perfect for the modern, working adult. One of the most reliable ways to restore a compromised tooth is a CEREC constructed crown.
