Talk to Your Dentist About CEREC Same-Day Crowns.
If you are embarrassed about a tooth that is discolored or diminished due to decay or damage, you may want to talk to Dr. Tom Morgan about a quick and easy fix. In these situations, he often recommends CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) same-day crowns. Don’t spend another day fretting over your smile. Call Babcock & Morgan Family Dental, located in Prior Lake, MN, but also serving New Prague, Savage and Shakopee, to learn more.
While all crowns are meant to protect and strengthen damaged or decayed teeth, CEREC same-day crowns are made of a strong ceramic and are designed using computer-assisted technology. Unlike with ordinary crowns, your dentist can design, build and place your CEREC crowns in a single visit.
The procedure is so quick because instead of making a physical impression that has to be sent to a lab, your dentist takes a digital optical picture of the prepared tooth. This means you don’t have to endure the process of sinking your teeth into a goopy tray for a mold or of having to return for a follow-up appointment.
Instead, a special machine converts the digital image into a 3-dimensional virtual model within minutes. Then, with the click of a button, your dentist sends the model to a milling machine that casts your tooth into a ceramic block matching your tooth’s color. Without you ever having to leave your dental chair, your new CEREC crown is made and bonded in your mouth.
If you want a new smile, consider this hi-tech method that won’t leave you waiting with a mouth full of goo. Just call Dr. Morgan at 952-447-4611 if you live in or near New Prague, Prior Lake, Savage or Shakopee, MN and ask him about the benefits of CEREC same-day crowns today.
