Many people lose a tooth or two as they age. Accidents happen, and your tooth may fall out because of an injury. Teeth also get broken because of injuries. Some people grind their teeth so much that it damages them. No one likes to have a smile they are embarrassed to have. You deserve to have a smile of which you are proud. Typically when we need to replace teeth, we use crowns. Crowns are artificial teeth. They can be placed right over your broken teeth. They will also fit in the space where your teeth are missing. The bad thing about getting crowns is that it takes time.
If your teeth are missing, we will have to place implants in, which will act like new roots for your crown. There are times when we place a temporary crown in your mouth while we wait for your crown to be made. This can be pretty inconvenient. Usually, you can wait 2-4 weeks for crowns to be made from and outside lab. During this time you are in a temporary crown chewing on one side of your mouth. Lucky for you, we offer CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
CEREC is wonderful because in only one visit you can get a smile of which you will be proud! The process uses the latest technologies, allowing us to make artificial teeth right in our office. After a thorough examination with x-rays, we can determine if the procedure will work for you.
