If you have a broken, cracked, or heavily decayed tooth you may need a dental crown. A crown or cap will restore the tooth. Dr. Reese utilizes the CEREC imaging and milling system for one visit crowns.
Traditionally, the placement of a dental crown requires at least two separate dental visits. First, the tooth is prepared and an impression of your tooth is taken. A temporary crown is placed while the dental laboratory creates the permanent crown from the impression and specifications. In some cases it will take weeks for the final crown to be made. Then, another appointment is required for the final placement of the crown.
The CEREC crown technology eliminates the need for a temporary crown altogether. Your teeth are prepared, the sophisticated handheld camera creates a digital impression of the tooth, and Dr. Reese can create your permanent crown right here in the office. There is no outside laboratory for milling. The restoration is completed all in one visit, saving you precious time.
