What is a “same-day” crown?
The CEREC® 3-D modeling and manufacturing technology at Walden Dental enables Dr. Frank to design, create and install dental crowns in a single visit. This innovation in digital dentistry saves time and money for our patients. Unlike the experience at most dental offices, at Walden, you won’t need to worry about missing multiple days from work for most procedures. Or taking time off without pay or having to hire day-care services just to get one tooth fixed. And, most importantly, same-day dental crowns eliminate the need for trial fittings and temporary dentures. Your new smile will look great and your crowns will fit perfectly on the first try.
CEREC® utilizes 3D photography and a Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) process to assist the dentist in designing virtual restorations — crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays and bridges. The CAD/CAM system transfers the design to a milling machine that precisely cuts the restoration from a ceramic block.
Dr. Frank and thousands of dentists worldwide utilize CEREC® to replace fillings and other imperfections. With this, we can restore any tooth that is decayed, broken or weakened to its natural strength and beauty. Better yet, the new dental crowns are made with all-ceramic tooth-colored material – and are completed in a single appointment!
