At most other dental practices, if a patient needs to have a broken or decayed tooth repaired with a crown, it will take at least two visits to the office, a messy impression, and a week spent with an unreliable dental crown to do it.
Meanwhile, at Tindal Prosthodontics, we use state-of-the-art technology to streamline the entire process into one easy appointment where a patient can walk in and walk out with a completely repaired tooth in just an hour.
The secret is CEREC technology, which stands for chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics. It combines computer-aided design and manufacturing technology to create fully-customized dental crowns in a fraction of the time compared to the traditional method.
After preparing your tooth to fit a crown, Dr. Tindal will take a digital impression of it, and he will use this to actually design your restoration. This information will then be sent to our in-house milling machine where the crown will be carved from a solid block of dental porcelain.
When it’s finished, Dr. Tindal will cement it into place, and you’re done, no follow-up visit required! And, just like a lab made crown, you can trust a CEREC-made restoration to look great and last for decades to come.
