One-Visit Crowns in Buffalo County
Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) is a method of dentistry that involves the use of computer aided design/manufacture (CAD/CAM) technology. CEREC is used to craft high-quality restorations in a single visit to the dental office. Mountain West Dental offers same-day dental services produced by CEREC to patients in Gillette, Rozet, and across Buffalo County.
CEREC avoids the wait needed to outsource crown fabrication and brings the dental lab into our office. Using dental-grade porcelain, each restoration is milled from a single block to ensure the quality of the restoration.
As opposed to pressing material into a shape using traditional methods, CEREC machines mill a single block of porcelain material to create a single-unit restoration. The integrity remains intact throughout the process. Patients can receive their crown, inlay, or onlay in the same day we gather impressions.
The Benefits of CEREC Technology
Patients appreciate the fast service and comfort provided by CEREC. CAD/CAM technology improves the methods by which we gather impressions and design your customized restoration. We avoid the use of goopy impression material, and the digital imaging we use increases comfort during the initial phase of treatment. Once completed, we send the design to our computer software to create a blue print for the CEREC milling machine to use.
This prosthetic fabrication method eliminates the need for uncomfortable temporaries. Dental restorations are supplied in just one visit, so patients do not have to go without their crowns for any length of time. Furthermore, patients experiencing ill-fitting restorations or other complications during placement can look forward to adjustments done during the same visit.
