At Campbell Family Dentistry in Roseburg, we understand that our patients have busy and eventful lives, and often it isn’t always easy to find the time for lengthy dental procedures. In the past, getting a dental crown could be pretty time consuming. Now, using the latest in modern dental technology, we can create custom dental crowns in significantly less time than ever before.
This is because at Campbell Family Dentistry we use a special system called CEREC which enables us to make beautiful porcelain crowns, custom-created for you, in as little as one visit. In most cases a dental crown made using CEREC takes approximately ninety minutes, saving you time for other things.
In the past, our team would take an impression of the tooth needing treatment and send it to a dental laboratory to have the crown made. Instead of taking just ninety minutes like with the CEREC system, it could take up to several weeks and a couple of visits.
Not only does CEREC have the wonderful benefit of taking less time, it has some other advantages as well.
Some of the other advantages of CEREC:
- Because CEREC crowns can be created in just one visit, our patients no longer have to deal with the hassle of having to wear a temporary crown.
- CEREC crowns are made of beautiful porcelain which mimics the look and feel of natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are great option too because they’re long lasting and very durable.
- CEREC technology can be used for some dental fillings. Because CEREC uses porcelain, fillings using this technology are often more durable than materials used for normal dental fillings.
CEREC is a fantastic technology that has been a real game changer. We are excited to be able to offer CEREC dental crowns to our Roseburg and Winston patients because it as an effective solution to help you have the beautiful smile you deserve.
