Have you heard of CEREC same-day crowns? Your dentists at Comprehensive Dental Group in Stamford, CT, proudly offer them to restore teeth damaged by decay, accident, abscess or other oral health issues. Dr. Irina Pogosian and Dr. Thomas Ohlson use state of the art design and manufacturing processes to create crowns quickly and conveniently in just one visit.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown, or cap, fully covers and protects a damaged tooth above the gum line. Teeth requiring dental crowns may have several old fillings, cracks, infection, extensive decay or other condition which threatens their viability and ruins their appearance. Our dentist removes the damaged portions, takes oral impressions and creates a tooth-shaped and durable restoration that looks and functions with perfect realism.
CEREC same-day crowns
Old-fashioned crowns took a couple of weeks and involved oral impressions and temporary restorations. Today's CEREC crowns are different, vastly improved in process and product through amazing digital design and fabrication.
Your dentist at Comprehensive Dental Group accomplishes the entire treatment chairside, as the name CEREC indicates. CEREC means Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. From examination to digital impressions to manufacture of your crown and its placement, it all happens right in the treatment room.
Dr. Ohlson and Dr. Pogosian input information from your X-ray imaging and digital impressions and then mill your 100 percent porcelain crown in about 20 minutes. Installation is a breeze because CEREC same-day crowns bite and fit perfectly right out of the machine.
