If you have lost a tooth or have existing teeth that are cracked, stained, or otherwise damaged, you probably don't want to wait to restore your smile. Well, you're in luck! Our state-of-the-art dental practice uses leading-edge CEREC® technology which allows us to create high-quality dental crowns in just one day. When you visit Sopris Smiles for restorative care, you don't have to wait to enjoy the smile you came looking for thanks to our same-day crowns!
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This is a machine that uses computer-aided design and manufacturing to generate exceptionally-crafted ceramic crowns right in the office. This means you don't need to wait for a follow-up appointment while you wait for a lab to generate your restoration. During your visit, the machine will use our digital impressions to mill the dental crown so we can install it the same day.
With our CEREC machine, we can generate hyper-realistic crowns while you wait in the office. The speed of this process leaves some patients wondering if quality is sacrificed in favor of convenience. The truth is that same-day crowns are just as high-quality as those milled in independent labs. Nothing is lost and you gain a complete smile with little to no wait time.
We use a ceramic material that is just as strong as enamel. This means that you should care for these crowns the same way you would your natural teeth. So long as you brush at least twice a day, floss regularly, and avoid overly hard foods or using your teeth as tools, you'll be able to enjoy the benefits of same-day crowns for decades.
If you just lost a tooth or want to protect a damaged tooth, don't hesitate to contact our office! We can generate your idea restoration in-office so you can leave with a smile you can be proud of. Contact us today to set your first appointment.
