It feels like the worst of the pandemic problems are behind us, and with the possibility of a vaccine on the horizon, it seems unlikely that we’ll see restrictions that closed dental offices across the country. However, the chief characteristic of 2020 has been uncertainty. Fortunately, at Kuhn Dental Associates, we have the perfect solution for people who need dental care in these uncertain times.
CEREC one-visit crowns and other restorations are perfect dental care for uncertain times. Here’s why.
No Second Visit Required
Probably the most important benefit of one-visit restorations is right there in the name: it only takes one visit. With this approach, we can prepare your teeth and install advanced ceramic restorations in just one visit.
Think of all the benefits this gives. First, you only have to make time in your schedule for one visit. You only disrupt your busy routine for one visit. Second, you only have one potential exposure. The risks are extremely low, or we wouldn’t be open, but we know that for some people, especially those with vulnerable family members, this can be a source of stress.
Plus, we don’t have to send the restoration away to a lab, which means that it won’t be affected by disruptions to shipping.
And even in the unlikely event that dental offices need to close again, you won’t be stuck with a temporary crown. You’ll have your final restoration when you leave our office the first day.
Clean and Quick Digital Impressions
CEREC doesn’t use the traditional method of making impressions. Instead of biting down into a tray of goo, you just open your mouth and we literally wave a wand over your teeth to “magically” make a 3D model of your teeth.
This is a cleaner way to take dental impressions–and it’s much faster than traditional bite molds.
Although CEREC restorations can be made quickly, they can also last a long time. CEREC crowns last as long as or longer than those made in a lab. Ceramic fillings, also called inlays and onlays, have a truly astonishing longevity. One study of CEREC fillings showed that nearly 90% of them were still in place after up to 27 years!
CEREC restorations give you the confidence that, even in a worst-case scenario, they will outlast our current uncertainties.
One of the things that has always recommended CEREC restorations is their beauty. Restorations we make are as attractive as those made in a lab. In fact, we can sometimes make them even more attractive, because we can tweak them in our office.
And even if there are cosmetic concerns, we can fix them right away in our office rather than sending them back to the lab.
