Getting a dental crown is usually a procedure that is done over multiple dentist visits. We take an impression of your teeth, send it to the lab, check if it fits correctly and finally place it on the affected tooth. With CEREC Technology at Bayview Village Dental Office, this whole process can be cut down to just one dentist visit. CEREC uses a computer assisted design technology and a computer assisted manufacturing technology to custom-mill a porcelain crown that fits your tooth exactly, thus eliminating the laboratory step in manufacturing the restoration. Porcelain crowns are strong, durable and aesthetically pleasing restorations that will save you a considerable amount of time. CEREC crowns protect the function of your tooth and preserve your natural tooth structure, giving you beautiful and healthy smile for life.
