When you have damaged teeth, the only news you want to hear is how you can get a restoration to treat your tooth immediately. If the damage is small, you are lucky because a typical filling can remedy your tooth in a matter of hours. However, if the damage is too extensive for a tooth filling, you may need a dental crown. Unfortunately, traditional dental crowns require several visits, extending your pain and limited oral functionality.
At Greg Campbell DDS, we have invested in CEREC technology to ensure that our Long Beach, California patients can have their teeth restored in one day. Yes, we can fabricate and install dental crowns in our dental office as you wait!
Before embarking on single-day crowns, let’s look at the reasons you may need a crown in the first place. When you need to strengthen a weakened tooth, you definitely need the intervention of Dr. Greg Campbell. If we attempt to restore your tooth with a large filling, where a crown is necessary, this will lead to further damage to the tooth that may even lead to extraction. A crown is best suited to protect the tooth’s structure when a large portion of the tooth is missing.
As you can see, dental crowns may be small, but they have numerous cosmetic and non-cosmetic functions. Whether you want to improve the appearance or health of your tooth, a dental crown is usually an excellent option.
Your teeth might be the hardest substance in your body, but this doesn’t mean they aren’t vulnerable. Tooth decay and injuries can compromise the integrity of your tooth, impeding your ability to eat properly. And since a damaged tooth won’t regenerate, you need the help of a dentist to restore your tooth. Thanks to single-visit dental crowns, Dr. Greg Campbell can revive the function and form of your smile in one day. But how is this possible?
A CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) machine does all the work an offsite lab can do, instantly fabricating a dental crown as you sit comfortably in our dental office. CEREC technology uses high-speed lasers and a subtle intraoral camera to take impressions of your mouth. We then fabricate your dental crowns right here in our office using high-precise images.
There is no room for messy impressions and temporal crowns known to fall out of place with single-visit crowns. You leave our office with a permanent restoration.
If you need a dental crown in Long Beach, California, you can always count on Greg Campbell DDS for restorations that only take one visit. Patients and dentists alike prefer same-day dental crowns because:
