What if we told you that you can fix your dental defects and have a brand new smile in just one dental appointment? That's the beauty of the CEREC One Appointment crowns that you can get from your Bloomington, IN, family dentist, Dr. Lisa Baker.
Dental crowns are synthetic caps that you can get from your dentist following a dental procedure such as a root canal to strengthen your teeth. They're also great for covering up damage and improving your smile. However, the process of getting dental crowns can take several dental visits. These appointments involve taking impressions of your teeth, constructing your dental crowns, and finally the installation.
CEREC One Appointment crowns involve using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) to reduce the time for the procedure to a single appointment.
Your dental appointment will begin with an oral exam and dental X-rays with your Bloomington, IN, family dentist to determine if you need dental crowns. Next, your dentist will prepare your teeth to receive your new dental crowns.
The digital impression that your dentist takes of your teeth is used to create a virtual model of your teeth. This model guides your dentist in making your new dental crowns. Once your crowns are ready, your dentist will glue them to your already prepared teeth. Due to the precision of the imaging techniques, you'll likely need little or no bite adjustments. Your new smile will look natural and beautiful.
Your dental crowns can serve you for up to eight years if you care for them properly. Some oral habits such as teeth grinding can reduce the lifetime of your dental crowns. Ensuring that you brush your teeth and floss regularly is also essential to protect your oral health and prevent bacteria and plaque buildup.
