Dental crowns are excellent in repairing damage too extensive for typical cavity fillings. Dental crowns encapsulate the entire tooth to protect it from further damage for years to come. While dental crowns are a marvel in restorative and cosmetic dentistry, one of their downsides is the time taken to get one. Traditional dental crowns involve several appointments spanning several weeks — most patients don’t have this luxury of time.
Today, dental practices like Buscemi Family Dentistry can restore your tooth with a dental crown in one day. Thanks to CEREC technology, Dr. Vincent Buscemi can prepare, create, and install dental crowns in a matter of hours. Sounds too good to be true! Seeing is believing — please book an appointment with our Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, office to witness same-day dental crowns in person.
CEREC in full Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics uses CAD/CAM technology, consisting of a camera, milling machine, and computer software in one unit. Our dental team uses a digital camera to take an accurate picture of your tooth and the surrounding teeth. These digital images are transferred and displayed on a computer screen, where we use computer-aided design (CAD) technology to design your crown.
Once we approve your crown design, we transfer the image into the computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) unit to manufacture your dental crown as you wait. Finally, we use dental cement to bond your new crown to the existing tooth. The whole process — from preparation to installation — takes about two hours!
