In the past, dental crowns took at least two appointments over a period of a few weeks. But at Khanani Family Dental, Dr. Khanani uses CEREC technology to provide crowns in just a single appointment at our office. How long does it take to get a same-day crown? Find out now!
CEREC is short for CERamic REconstruction. This is a method of dentistry that uses CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing) technology to quickly create dental restorations like crowns.
CEREC uses a special hand-held scanner, which takes a 3D image of your mouth. This is uploaded to a computer, then Dr. Khanani can sculpt and create a crown. This information is then sent to a special milling machine, and your crown is cut out from a block of solid porcelain in just a few minutes.
Using this advanced technology, we can place crowns in just one appointment at Khanani Family Dental. Let’s discuss the process in further detail now.
In most respects, the CEREC process is just like getting a traditional crown. However, you only need to visit us for a single appointment. Here’s a closer look at what to expect from the CEREC treatment process at Khanani Family Dental.
So, how long does this process take? Usually, the CEREC crown process takes about 2 hours from start to finish, including your oral exam, tooth preparation, designing, building, and placing your crown. This is a lot faster and a lot more convenient than seeing your Holden dentist for 2+ visits over a period of several weeks!
Thanks to our investment in CEREC technology, we offer convenient, same-day dental crowns at Khanani Family Dental. Even if you have a busy schedule and lifestyle, we can provide you with the treatment you need to keep your mouth healthy.
So if you need a new crown in Holden or Worcester, don’t wait. Give us a call at (508) 829-4575 or contact us online to schedule a consultation with Dr. Khanani and get a same-day crown.
