If you’ve had a dental crown in the past, you probably remember multiple visits to your dentist’s office with weeks of waiting in between. It’s a lot to go through for a relatively simple restoration. You’ll be relieved to know that CEREC in Ashburn cuts the time required for a dental crown in less than half. Using CAD/CAM technology and an on-site milling machine, CEREC at Dr. Sabharwal’s office gives you your new, beautiful dental crown in just one visit!
One Visit Crowns Possible with CEREC
A dental crown is a thin covering that encases a decayed or damaged tooth. It’s used to correct a number of dental issues, including:
- Strengthening a severely decayed tooth
- Holding together parts of a broken tooth
- Restoring a dental implant for single-tooth replacement
- Restoring a tooth after root canal therapy
- Making significant cosmetic improvements in a smile, including correcting the size, shape and/or color of an imperfect tooth
Using CEREC, Dr. Sabharwal and Dr. Hawasli can prepare for, create and place your new dental crown in just one appointment to our Ashburn office.
One Visit Crowns: The Procedure
Your dentist in Ashburn begins the procedure for one visit crowns by preparing your tooth for the new crown. This involves buffing away a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for the restoration to fit on top. Then we’ll take digital impressions of your teeth to aid in the creation of your new crown. This information will be fed into the CEREC milling machine, which will create the device in about 20 minutes! Once it’s ready, your dentist will check the new crown to ensure it fits, feels and functions just like it should. After we’ve confirmed that everything is just the way it should be, your new crown is securely bonded on… and you’re walking out of our office with your new, improved smile.
Benefits of One Visit Crowns
Sure, one visit crowns make the treatment faster and more convenient than ever before — but the benefits of this treatment go beyond their efficiency. We’d never sacrifice quality for convenience, after all. Fortunately, CEREC increases both. Digital impressions give your dentist a far more accurate and in-depth view of your teeth and oral structures, resulting in a better-fitting crown overall. And because everything is completed under the same roof, there’s no risk for miscommunication between your dental office and the lab. We can carefully control every step of your dental crown, for the very best end result possible.
