A tooth does not wait for the opportune time to become cracked. It seems that most chipped and broken teeth happen when there is a lot of other things to be done in your personal and professional life. Luckily, this is where crown in an hour comes in.
You may be wondering: What is crown in an hour? Well, in short, it is the process of being fitted for a new crown often within an hour’s time. Also known as CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, this process involves scanning your damaged tooth and making a synthetic tooth from a 3D printer.
With this technology, getting fitted for your crown has never been easier.
If you have a cracked tooth but not a lot of time, CEREC might be the right choice for you. Here are just five of the many benefits of crown in an hour!
While with most crowns the process can take up to several days, with the survey of the damaged tooth and creating the crown, CEREC will have you walking out with your permanent solution within an hour
Before crown in an hour, you would have to leave your appointment with a temporary crown and return for your permanent one. Often, these temporary solutions are ill-fitting and do not look real.
Crown in an hour has eliminated this by giving you your permanent crown the same day that you come in.
You may be worried that same day crowns will not give you the same durability of traditional methods.
However, this could not be farther from the truth. Your same-day crowns are just as lasting as any others and could actually be more comfortable than traditional options.
No Dental Putty Required
Most people who have had to suffer through dental putty wish to stay as far away from it as possible. There is little worse than allowing your dentist to put goo in your mouth for an extended period of time.
With CEREC, there is no need to endure this. All of the information that they will need about your tooth is digitally scanned.
They Look Real
With traditional crowns, it can often be easy to tell that they are there. Crown in an hour, however, works to blend in with your other teeth.
Instead of just making a tooth that works, CEREC takes it a step further to ensure that the end result of your smile is just as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional.
While it may seem strange that something that used to take days can now be done in an hour, CEREC should not be underestimated. Thanks to new technology, you can now receive a crown that looks better, and works just as well, in a fraction of the time.
