Weston Dentist Dr Pyle Now Offers Cerec One-Visit Crowns
Our office is pleased to be able to offer crowns made with CEREC technology. In some cases our dental laboratories have already been using this state-of-the art technology to produce superior crowns.Now we have brought this technology into our Weston dental office.We are now able to provide our patients with same-day restorative and cosmetic dentistry!
What are the Advantages of Cerec Crowns?
- The pure single-block of ceramic porcelain is stronger than normal porcelain which is built in layers, so Cerec crowns are less likely to ever break.
- There is no metal in a Cerec crown.
- They can be custom stained in our office to match your other teeth.
Using a CEREC computer, Weston dentist Dr Pyle can custom design a porcelain crown in our office – on the spot. This eliminates the need to send the crown prep to an outside laboratory; which previously required a second appointment many weeks later for our patients to receive the finished crown.Now crowns can be ready in a few days or a fewhours.Some patients have even chosen to have us complete their crowns on the same day so they do not need to wear a temporary crown.
How are Cerec Crowns made?
We begin by preparing your teeth for an impression.Then we take an optical impression with the Cerec computer system.Next we digitally design the proper shape and contours of your crown.Then a computerized milling machine will manufacture the crown to exactly fit your teeth using the design parameters we have specified.This milling is done using a single pure ceramic block of material.Finally we color match and glaze your crown in our porcelain oven to create your beautiful restoration.
Why Does Weston Dentist Dr Pyle Recommend Cerec Crowns?
The Cerec “Computer-Assisted Design-Computer-Assisted Manufacturing”, or “CAD-CAM” technology gives our Weston dental office complete control over all steps in preparing and producing your crown.This insures a perfect fit and a life-like match to your real teeth.Being able to offer our cosmetic and restorative dentistry patients same day service is also a nice feature.
