Same Day Crowns (CEREC®)
Getting a crown does not have to be a lengthy affair. With CEREC® technology at Anderson & Zentz Dental, patients get a crown in a single visit as opposed to multiple visits separated by weeks. As the dental leader in Kennewick, this top-of-the-line technology allows a damaged tooth to be prepared and a porcelain crown created and placed right in the office. Gone are the days of waiting for a laboratory to build your crown. You can walk out of the office in one day with a permanent crown that looks and feels like a real tooth.
How It Works
CEREC® has two components, an acquisition unit and milling machine. The acquisition unit includes a medical-grade computer and the CEREC® camera. A digital image is taken of the prepared tooth, which is then fed into software that converts it into a three dimensional model. The team then designs the restoration right on the screen. The design is wirelessly sent to a milling machine. The team will then insert a ceramic block matching the color of the tooth and the final product is carved using specialized burs and afterward, fired in a ceramic furnace. This part of the process takes between 30 and 40 minutes. The crown is then placed on the tooth and you are on your way.
