Computer-assisted design and computer-assisted manufacturing, or CAD/CAM has been one of the greatest advancements to flourish at Bell Dental. Our ability to use such high-quality digital images to diagnose your needs, map your bite and your teeth, and create customized restorations has changed the way we do dentistry. CAD/CAM technology no only improves the precision with which we can treat our patients, but allows you to understand the treatment with more depth and clarity.
When providing same-day crowns to Lake Jackson patients, Drs. Brian Bell and Justin Crocker first plan the restorative treatment using CAD/CAM. Then, they deliver the information collected by the images and maps to the CEREC® machine, where a completely individualized, meticulously accurate restoration is milled out of a solid block of porcelain. After a few minutes of milling, the crown is complete and ready to be placed.
Traditionally, patients receiving dental crowns were asked to wear a temporary restoration while the more permanent crown was being fabricated at an off-site dental laboratory. The period during which the temporary crown was worn could last up to a few weeks. Now with same-day crowns, you will walk into our office with a broken or decayed tooth and walk out with the replacement that has the potential to last the rest of your life.
Using such advanced technology in our office allows us to save our patients' time. Our dentists understand how valuable those afternoons after work can be, and we're pleased to provide a treatment that minimizes your time in our chair. This incredibly convenient option does not require hours upon hours of treatment, nor waiting time. In just about an hour, the entire procedure can be completed.
In addition to the helpfulness of such a short appointment, same-day dental crowns provide the same structural and aesthetic benefits as traditionally milled crowns. With the proper care, these ceramic restorations can last for years to come. Because CEREC® crowns can be expertly color-matched, it can replace a severely damaged, decayed, or discolored tooth and blend in naturally with the rest of your smile.
If you are interested in replacing structurally damaged or decaying teeth with natural-looking and durable crowns without sacrificing hours of your time, then it's time to contact Bell Dental in Lake Jackson about same-day crowns. Our dentists would be thrilled to show you how quickly and easily we can change your smile forever.
