Providing Columbia, SC crown services with CEREC for Irmo, Lexington, Blythewood and Camden, SC.
To understand why CEREC® technology is rapidly becoming the preferred cosmetic option among busy professionals, first we should briefly understand the traditional crown fabrication process.
Before the advent of CEREC, dentists had to create impressions, send information to a lab, wait for your temporary to return, then fit your temporary. If the temporary requires further modification, the process begins again. If it fits, then it’s back to the lab to create your permanent crown.
In contrast, our advanced CAD/CAM CEREC software automatically discovers the anatomical shape of your tooth and generates an ideal replacement for it — all during a single office visit! No information is sent out to a lab, so you don’t need to wait weeks for a temporary or permanent replacement crown. Watch your new crown develop right before your eyes!
CEREC technology offers several compelling conveniences:
CEREC technology represents a huge time convenience for our busiest professionals. Dr. Griffin guarantees his CEREC crowns to Columbia, SC patients for five years with no questions asked. So what are you waiting for? Visit our team for a complimentary consultation.
Compared to the traditional crown process, CEREC is lightning-fast. Leave our Columbia dental office with your new porcelain crown in a single day — not weeks or months.
How does it work? Our CEREC software and design machine utilizes a composite digital impression that produces a three-dimensional image for a crown that precisely matches your bite. This information is sent wirelessly from our Blythewood dental CAD/CAM computer program to our milling machine in real time. The machine designs your customized crown using specific color and contour information provided by Dr. Griffin. Your crown is then sanded, glazed and bonded into place — all while you wait. The entire process takes 10-15 minutes!
CEREC technology, however, is not for everyone. Our Blythewood dentist recommends it for the majority of posterior teeth, patients with large, aging fillings and those with broken teeth or cusps. To give your CEREC crown optimal durability, avoid eating popcorn, grinding your teeth, smoking or excessive consumption of sugary candies.
Avoid messy impressions, more appointments and lost work time. Explore the CEREC alternative with fast crowns from Columbia, SC dentist Justin Griffin.
