At Northern Horizon Dental, we’re dedicated to using innovative technology at our cosmetic dentistry office in order to make the time you spend with us as comfortable and efficient as possible. One of the latest tools in the industry that we use at our office is known as the Cerec machine. To put it simply, this machine designs, moulds, and creates dental crowns right in our office.
When you come into our cosmetic dentistry office to have a crown placed on one of your teeth, a few things will happen if we decide to use the Cerec machine. For example, we will:
- Examine your teeth – Before we do anything else, we will exam your teeth and gums and carefully inspect the tooth that will be receiving the crown. We will then prepare the affected tooth for the crown by removing any debris from it.
- Take impressions of your tooth –Once your tooth is ready for the crown, we will take an optical picture of it.
- Create the crown – Using the impression we took of your tooth, we will use the Cerec Machine to create your crown right then and there. This machine not only helps us create crowns right at our office, but it also prevents us from needing to create messy dental impressions and then send them off to a lab for creation.
After the Cerec machine has made the crown, we will then apply it to your tooth. Then, you get to enjoy having a beautifully restored smile. If you want to know more about this advanced machine and how it enhances our cosmetic dentistry services, give us a call today.
