Our CEREC computer restoration system is the latest in dental technology. It can significantly reduce the cost of tooth restoration and this procedure can be completed in the surgery with strong, durable non-metallic ceramic material in a single visit.
If you are time-poor or your work commitments make it difficult to schedule appointments, at Griffith Dental Lounge you can get your dental crown or veneer completed in a single visit. Instead of the average two-week turn around, the whole process takes just one visit.
With the use of an intraoral scanner, your dentist will take a digital impression of your teeth (no traditional impression required) Your dentist will then design your restoration using CAD technology. Finally, once the design is ready, your dentist will manufacture the crown using a milling machine or 3D printers and fit the final crown.
Your dentist may recommend a crown to:
- Protect a tooth that is cracked or weakened by decay
- Restore a tooth that has been worn down
- Support a tooth with a large dental filling, where a significant portion of the tooth enamel has been removed
- Hold a dental bridge or cover an implant
- Enhance the tooth cosmetically
