Traditional dental crowns take two to three visits to complete. At the first appointments, we prepare the tooth, the second one is for your permanent crown, and often we might need a final appointment to make any bite adjustments.
With CEREC technology, you can have your dental crown in a single office visit while you wait. We use digital impressions and CAD/CAM technology to design a custom dental crown in our in-office milling machine. Your dentist will put the final artistic flourishes on the crown, making sure that it matches your natural teeth.
In some cases, we may recommend a porcelain fused to metal crown or even a full gold crown for back teeth that absorb the force of chewing. We will discuss the correct type of crown for you when you come into our Parsippany dental office for your exam.
