Many dental procedures, from root canal therapy to tooth restoration, involve more than one dental appointment – one for receiving the treatment, and another for having the final crown placed. As top New York dentists, the Smile in the City team understands that New York patients are busy people and always on the go, with rarely enough time to make multiple appointments for the same dental treatment. We’re dedicated not only to creating beautiful, healthy smiles, but also to providing convenient care that works for you. Our new CEREC same-day crown services allow patients to receive dental crowns in a few hours, making it possible to be in and out of the office with a brand new smile.
What Are Dental Crowns?
A crown is designed to match the shade and appearance of your natural teeth, then placed over a damaged or decayed tooth for protection, support and aesthetics. Permanent crowns can be made of metal, such as gold alloy, nickel or chromium, or they are often made of porcelain fused to metal. Many patients receive a temporary crown while the permanent crown is being fabricated, then come back for a second appointment for the final crown.
How CEREC Works
By using advanced CEREC software, Smile in the City dentists can create a ceramic restoration of the patient’s tooth in a single appointment. CEREC allows dentists to turn a digital image of the tooth into a 3D virtual model, which is then used to create the crown in just a matter of hours. With CEREC technology, you can enjoy expert, accurate results with convenience and ease, so that you can receive the smile you deserve.
