The Value of the One-Visit Dental Crown

As technology advances, the less we have to wait for the things we want or need. Dentistry is no different. Modern technology has drastically changed the way we restore damaged teeth. Thanks to state-of-the-art dental systems like CEREC, patients don’t have to wear temporary crowns or make multiple trips to the dentist to restore a damaged tooth. In fact, you can get your permanent dental crown in a single office visit!

A dental crown is a cap that covers all visible surfaces of a tooth. It is used on a tooth that is severely decayed, infected, broken or weakened. It is recommended when a filling, inlay or onlay will not effectively restore the tooth. Past methods of getting a custom dental required patients to endure a messy impression and wear a temporary crown or other restoration for several days before they returned to the office for their permanent crown. With a modern dentist that uses CEREC technology, however, the process is streamlined for optimal patient satisfaction.

The Technology Behind Same Day Results

At Peninsula Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, our advanced CEREC system allows us to custom fabricate your crown, bridge or other restoration right here in our office. After we take a painless optical impression of your mouth using the CAD/CAM technology, its computer-design software then creates a highly precise three-dimensional image of your new dental crown restoration. The CEREC machine goes even further to perform the manufacturing process by conveniently milling the crown right away.

Before you leave our office, we will carefully bond the crown to your tooth so that you have a seamless and durable restoration. There’s no need for messy impressions, temporary crowns or repeated trips to our office. We value your comfort and schedule at Peninsula Cosmetic & Family Dentistry. To learn more about the benefits of CEREC Same Day Crowns, call our Charleston office today.

No Insurance?
No Problem!

Join our Premier Plan Today

Dentistry should be as affordable as it is high-quality. At Peninsula Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we firmly believe that the terms of a dental insurance plan (or lack thereof) should not dictate the quality of care our patients deserve. That’s why we are pleased to offer our in-house savings plan. Now, patients who are uninsured can STILL save on general, preventative, and even ortho services!

Absolutely phenomenal dental office. Not only are the dentists outstanding at their craft but, like every person in the office, they are incredibly friendly and genuine. And that is so important. I earnestly recommend Peninsula if you are looking for the highest quality care, expertise and, equally important, quality people. I would give them 10 stars if I could.
