The Convenience of Same Day Dentistry

March 7, 2018

When you need a crown or bridge, multiple dental visits can be an inconvenience to your daily routine and pocket book. That is why at Dr. Jockin’s office we offer a revolutionary procedure known as CEREC same day dentistry. Here is a look at how CEREC works and the common problems this method solves.

What Is CEREC?

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or Ceramic Reconstruction. This uses computer-aided design software and computer-aided manufacturing to create restorative pieces for your smile. A digital image is created of your tooth and a crown created on-site which is designed to fit in every dimension.

3D Software Skips Traditional Impressions

The main difference between the CEREC procedure and traditional crowns and bridges is the method of producing a copy of your existing teeth. This uses advanced 3D computer software to create your crown instead of a long molding process. If you have experienced the molding material usually used and been dissatisfied with the feel, consider this advanced procedure.

Individual and Custom Crowns Within Two Hours

If your dentist in Tampa, FL, uses traditional methods to make a crown or bridge, you may have to wait days or even longer than a week for your new tooth cover to be ready. With CEREC everything is done in a few hours during one visit.

High Quality Materials That Look Natural

Despite these differences, CEREC same day dentistry creates realistic tooth caps that are just as durable and comfortable as traditional crowns. Because the fit is so precise, people who take good care of their teeth have noticed these last longer than traditional crowns.
