We’ve made it simpler for you to get the dentistry you need when you need it. In the past, crown placement required an appointment to prepare the tooth, a temporary crown, and then a wait while the lab crafts your crown. Now, we can create your crown right here in our office, while you wait, using a process called CEREC. CEREC relies on computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create your crown using Dr. Lewis’s exact specifications.
We’ll prepare your tooth and take digital impressions. The CEREC software will then use this information to mill the crown. When the crown is ready, Dr. Lewis will check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and then bond the crown in place. Temporary crowns are a thing of the past!
