Can I have my crown made the same day?
At Mill Creek Dental Health Center, we are pleased to offer our patients the convenience of CEREC same-day crowns.
Traditional lab-created crowns have been a staple of dentistry for decades. But advances in technology now allow us to fabricate beautiful, durable crowns during just one visit to our office.
CEREC is a process for creating crowns that begins with digital photos and x-rays of your teeth. This information is shared with CAD/CAM technology that designs a perfect 3-D model of your new crown. Dr. Cho makes any necessary modifications, then sends the specifications to a milling machine that creates your new crown from a block of ceramic material.
The process usually takes a couple of hours from start to finish, after which time you will leave our office with your brand new finished crown. No additional appointments, no multiple injections, no temporaries, and no two-week wait! During your time with us, we invite you to sit back and listen to your favorite music or watch your a favorite TV show.
If you would like to learn more about state-of-the-art CEREC technology, please call our Mill Creek, WA dental office. Dr. Cho will be happy to explain the process and help you decide if CEREC is the right choice for you.
