CEREC Same-Day Crowns in Elk Grove Village IL
At Elk Grove Smile Center, we cater to our patients’ needs. Not only do we wish to create the highest quality dental restorations available, so that you can enjoy longevity and reliability, but we also make your dentistry convenient and easy! Implementing CEREC restorations into our Elk Grove Village dental practice allows us to achieve both of these goals.
What Are CEREC Same-Day Restorations?
CEREC, which stands for chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics, means that we employ the use of computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing of restorations, such as dental crowns, to complete your treatment in one visit right in our office while you wait.
Using digital technology, we can actually eliminate the need for sticky dental impressions. Instead, we use digital 3-D scanning software to take the most accurate digital impression of your tooth. Once we obtain this information, it is processed by our state-of-the-art software, which designs your dental crown. Digital impressions allow for greater accuracy and eliminate the problem of air bubbles or distorted impressions that sometimes occur using impression material.
Once our software generates the digital information for your dental crown, the information is then uploaded to our in-office ceramic milling device. The milling device will create your dental crown out of a single piece of durable ceramic. Because all of the information was gathered using digital technology, the size, shape, and fit will be extremely accurate.
After the milling process, Dr. Advani will apply shading to your ceramic crown, so that the appearance is completely natural and matches your existing teeth. He will then cement your permanent restoration and make any final adjustments to ensure an excellent fit.
