Porcelain crowns are an excellent restorative option for fixing a wide range of dental problems. They are durable with a natural look and feel. We often use porcelain dental crowns at our practice for patients from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, and Sheffield when we need to add stability to a damaged tooth, or to conceal chips, cracks, stains, and other imperfections.
In the past, one drawback to porcelain crowns has been that they required two office visits — one to prepare the tooth and one to place the crown — with a wait of several weeks in between while the crown was made by a dental laboratory.
However, at Red Sky at The Fountain Health Clinic, we are now able to do it all in just one visit. We are proud to offer our patients custom-made, one-visit porcelain crowns with the CEREC® system.
We start by preparing the tooth, and then use the CEREC® system’s camera and three-dimensional imaging software to make a digital image of the area. The CEREC® machine uses this image to mill the crown from a piece of high-quality porcelain. There is just a short wait while you relax in one of our treatment chairs, and your crown is ready to be cemented in place.
CEREC® porcelain crowns are custom-made to exact specifications, so they precisely fit the prepared tooth. A better fit means a better look and feel. And, in most cases, it is nearly impossible to distinguish a natural tooth from one with a CEREC® crown.
With CEREC®, we can help save you time and money, while you receive an exceptionally natural-looking result. To learn more about CEREC® one-visit porcelain crowns, contact our practice in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, near Sheffield to schedule a consultation.
