Dental restorations used to take several visits to prepare and insert dental crowns. For some patients looking to renew their smiles, the added stress and time it takes to manufacture false teeth just isn’t worth the trouble. That’s why Smile Design Dental invested in state-of-the-art technology that will fashion permanent crowns while you wait. We offer the very best CEREC dental crowns in Fort Lauderdale because our patients get more done, in less time!
Candidates for Crowns
The most effective way to replace damaged or lost dentition involves using a dental crown to cap the tooth or by filling a gap. Patients with such problems can suffer from painful chewing, difficulty speaking, and lowered self-confidence. Crowns can help alleviate a host of issues, such as:
- Broken or cracked teeth that don’t require removal
- Root canal treatment
- Lost or extracted teeth
- Disguising severely decayed or misshapen dentition
- Poorly positioned teeth
As replacement teeth, crowns are very durable and with proper care, they can last well over a decade. Because they are made from a variety of materials, our staff will help you find the type that works best for your lifestyle.
Some patients prefer the durability and look of inert metal crowns such as gold or stainless steel. Others want their false teeth to disappear amongst their natural dentition, so porcelain, resin, and porcelain-coated metals may be better fits. Unfortunately, these types of crowns need to be fabricated in a special off-site lab, which means you’ll need to schedule another appointment before enjoying the use of your new permanent crown. The CEREC machines at our Fort Lauderdale dentist’s office can craft ceramic crowns unique to your mouth in a process that takes minutes instead of days!
What is CEREC Dentistry?
Doctors need to have a good bedside manner, and same-day crown production takes that concept to a whole new level. Our CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic) machines use small drills and grinds away material to sculpt a brand new false tooth in minutes. Using computer-aided imagery and scans of your mouth, your doctor can create a host of dental restoratives, including:
Simple pieces such as crowns and veneers can be made while our staff is busy taking care of your oral health.
As with most procedures, the total cost of same-day crowns varies with each patient. Prices can fluctuate depending on the amount of work needed and the type of crowns used. In general, same-day crowns are a bit more expensive to offset the high cost associated with CEREC machines. Even so, this is mitigated by the need for fewer office visits. Since our team can craft the crown in a single visit, there’s no need to charge for extra time in the chair!
If payment is an issue, please contact our offices as we have programs to help pay for essential services. Our Smile Design Dental membership program offers excellent deals and financing!
