Many new developments and inventions have been made to create a world of beautiful healthy smiles, and Dr. Mark E. Lawton prides himself on keeping up with the latest technology to benefit his patients. That is why we offer CEREC same-day crowns, a revolutionary machine that will change how you feel about crowns forever.
What CEREC same-day crowns offer is the ability for Dr. Lawton to produce a custom crown made specifically for you in a single office visit, from start to finish. The process begins with preparing your natural tooth as the doctor normally would for a crown. Then, the tooth and surrounding area are scanned, and that information is sent to a computer. When the computer assesses the information, it displays a picture of the crown that is needed.
What the computer then does is communicates with the milling machine in our office, which is the machine that makes your crown. Your custom made CEREC crown is then sculpted from a single block of porcelain. This takes between 10 to 20 minutes and uses porcelain that exactly matches the color of your natural tooth. Once your crown is finished, it is cemented onto your prepared natural tooth. Voila! You are left with nothing but a beautiful new smile you can feel confident about, all in one convenient appointment.
One of the great benefits of CEREC one-day crowns is the fact that the crowns are metal and mercury free. That way, you are not left with a mouth full of metal, and your cosmetic change is as natural looking as possible. Another benefit is that CEREC crowns offer a stronger protection than other crowns, making them ideal for teeth toward the back of the mouth. Also, there are no impressions that need to be made, eliminating the mess and discomfort normally associated with crown fittings.
With over 25 years of research and many happy patients, there is no doubt Dr. Lawton and CEREC same-day crowns will be able to give you the smile you have always wanted!
