In the past, the dental crown procedure took two visits to your dentist. However, our Grand Rapids dentist uses CEREC technology so you get your permanent dental crown in one visit.
Not only is a CEREC crown durable enough to withstand years of wear and tear, but it can also be made right in our office. This means that you don’t have to deal with the hassle of a temporary crown while waiting for an off-site lab to make your permanent tooth restoration.
Benefits of our CEREC scanner
If you have a high gag reflex, you’ll be happy to know that our CEREC scanner is non-invasive. In the past, dentists had to firmly press trays of pink putty against the roof of your mouth to get dental impressions. Today, we use our CEREC scanner to take more precise dental images without triggering your gag reflex.
You get your permanent dental crown in one visit!
The dental pictures we take with CEREC are then used to create your tooth crown in one appointment. The CEREC scanner lets us pull up your dental images on our computer so we can design a ceramic crown that will look and feel natural.
Dr. Piotrowski DDS and his team are dedicated to helping you maintain a beautiful healthy smile by offering CEREC dental services. To schedule an appointment with our Grand Rapids dentist, call Precision Family Dental at (616) 949-1570.
