Have you ever wondered how creating a healthy smile through science and artistry can save you both time and money? The answer is “CEREC” (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics)!
When a tooth has been damaged structurally or by decay at times it might need a crown. A crown is a strong and durable covering that is made over to fit your entire tooth. This procedure used to be done by dental technicians in a dental laboratory. We are excited to share with you that at Luth & Heideman Center of Dental Care we offer this new state of the art technology which is a much more convenient alternative. “Same day crown’s” while you wait is Dentistry for today’s lifestyle.
Computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing or what we call CAD/CAM allows us to custom make your dental crown in minutes while you wait with the same quality as a dental lab would make.
The way it works
First we “prepare” the tooth by removing any decay in the tooth followed by shaping the tooth, this allows for the crown to fit over the tooth properly. Then we use a small scanning intraoral camera to take digital pictures inside your mouth and in seconds the computer will generate an accurate 3D model of your teeth, which would allow us to custom design the crown. Once this step is completed it’s time for the milling unit to do the rest. This machine will carve out the crown from a ceramic block in a matter of a few minutes. Last step is to bond or cement the crown to the tooth.
Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman not only provide the BEST dental service in Las Vegas; they also provide you with Affordable crowns. Both Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman train other Dentists Nationwide as well as Canada on how to use this amazing same day crown technology “CEREC”.
