Dental crown technology just keeps getting better and more affordable! Dr. James Wells of South Charlotte Dentistry offers so many excellent solutions for a broken or chipped tooth. There is no need to put off getting a tooth crown, dental implant, or crown repair anymore!
Our favorite dental crown technology right now is the CEREC Crown, sometimes referred to as the Same Day Crown. This digital tooth repair technology uses a computer scan to make an exact replacement tooth cap out of high performance polymer material. And it only takes about an hour!
As seen in this picture (below), after the patient’s teeth are scanned digitally, the CEREC Machine mills the crown material down with incredible accuracy. The new tooth crown is then cemented and the patient is on their way. No temporary crowns, no messy molds or impressions, and practically pain free.
