How can we help you?
We don't expect you to be an expert in every aspect of your dental care, so we always welcome and encourage questions. The team at Mill Creek Dental Health Care wants you to enjoy the empowerment that comes with being an active participant in your dental care. And knowing what's on your mind and how we can help also allows us to customize your treatment to fit all your unique needs.
Here are a few of the questions we hear most often, but you may have some of your own that aren't included. Please feel free to contact our office anytime, whether by phone or by filling out our convenient online contact form.
CEREC Same-Visit Crowns & Bridges
Yes! We Can Create Crowns in 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. We make any necessary modifications, then sends the specifications to a milling machine that creates your new crown from a block of ceramic material.
How long does the Process Take?
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. We will be happy to explain the process and help you decide if CEREC is the right choice for you.
