Stanley Dentistry is one of only a few practices that offer on-demand, custom porcelain crowns through the use of CEREC 3. CEREC is a new technology that allows us to make a high-quality, custom crown for you in minutes during your visit. That means, no more waiting around or running to multiple appointments!
How does it work?
A dental crown is a type of restoration that completely covers a portion of the tooth or dental implant. Dental crowns can be used to improve the appearance of teeth or repair and strengthen a damaged tooth. CEREC has revolutionized the way we create and apply ceramic restorations, including crowns, on-lays, and veneers. This amazing system takes a digital image of your tooth and then mills a custom restoration from a solid ceramic block in just a few minutes. We can then place the restoration as soon as it’s done. There’s no impressions, no temporaries, no waiting for a lab to make and send the restoration, no concerns about an incorrect fit and no second visit!
How long will it take?
In the past, receiving a crown took at least two appointments, separated by a two-week wait period. Not anymore! CEREC 3D is an in-office 3-dimensional, Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing (3D/CAD/CAM) system for creating all-ceramic restorations in the course of a single treatment session. Now getting a crown in Cary, NC is easy!
Am I a good fit?
You may be a good fit for dental crowns if you have weak or decaying teeth, want to cover a misshaped or discolored tooth, need to restore a broken tooth, or need to support a tooth with a large filling. We can help you determine the best dental solution during your visit!
