The procedure for a Tampa CEREC crowns is much more efficient and convenient for the patient in comparison to the traditional crown procedure. However, not all dental offices offer CEREC crowns because not all dental offices have access to the CEREC technology. The conventional crown procedure requires more than one office visit and takes several steps to complete. The first step is the preparation for the procedure. The tooth is typically reduced in size to accommodate the crown. The dentist then takes an impression and makes a cast of the patient’s teeth. The impression is sent to the lab to make the custom crown. In some cases, a temporary crown is put on the patient’s tooth. When the crown is ready, the patient would return for another visit at which time, the permanent crown is placed. This procedure for CEREC is much more convenient. The advanced CEREC technology allows the dentist to complete the procedure in one office visit. Once completed, the patient leaves the office with the new, permanent crown the same day.
