If you are putting off going to the dentist to get a dental crown because you do not want to have a series of visits to your dentist office, we encourage you to visit our dental practice, Michael B. Schwarz, DMD. At our dental practice, our dentist Dr. Michael B. Schwarz, is able to offer treatment with Ridgefield CEREC crowns.
Ridgefield CEREC crowns are an innovative way for patients to get dental treatment and permanent dental crowns all in one short office visit. In order to provide a Ridgefield CEREC crown, our dentist will use a computer to take digital photographs of the tooth that needs to be covered. CAD/CAM computer technology will then be used to develop a 3-D model of the tooth. All of this information is then sent to our in-house milling station. The same-day crown is then immediately milled, with the milling taking about 15 minutes. Our dentist will then be able to make sure that the crown perfectly color-matches the adjacent teeth so no one will ever be able to tell that you have it in your mouth. The CEREC crown will them be permanently attached to the tooth, and your total crown treatment will be completed. With this type of treatment option, patients are able to have cavities filled or other dental treatment performed, and get a CEREC crown to strengthen the tooth, all in the same day. We also offer regular crowns for our patients, but are happy to provide this same-day treatment as a popular option. The CEREC crowns are milled from a block of ceramic material. The total restoration process usually takes about one hour. Patients enjoy the fact that there is not any need to use messy impression materials. These CEREC crowns are completely made of tooth-colored ceramic material, and have no metal or silver components which will discolor your smile. The crown is also anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant.
