Thanks to modern dental technology, you don’t have to wait long to have your smile restored by a dentist. Commondental crowns     dental restorations include fillings, veneers, bridges, and crowns. Now thanks to same day crowns you don’t have to wait longer than an hour or so to have a tooth restored. Just see Dr. Mehr Tucker and Dr. Tammira Badakhshan in Rockville, MD, to ask about a treatment called CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics).

Restoring Your Smile
As strong and stable as the teeth may be, sometimes they need to be restored with dental devices to keep them in good health. A crown is one of the most popular restorative treatments used by dentists. It can take a badly damaged and discolored tooth and make it look like new. Not only does the tooth improve in appearance, it also becomes stronger for chewing and resisting future damage or injury.

Same Day Crowns
The customary procedure for creating and installing a dental crown requires you to visit the dentist’s office two or three times. But when you choose same day crowns, only one appointment with your Rockville dentist is necessary. Thanks to a special machine that reads and processes images of your tooth quickly, a custom crown can be created in the office as you’re waiting. The CAD/CAM imaging software sends instructions to a dental milling machine that creates the crown in a matter of minutes.

Advantages of Same Day Restorations
With same-day crowns, you get to avoid the inconvenience of multiple dental visits. Not everyone has the luxury of taking so much time off work or leaving school for this type of treatment. Another advantage is that many CEREC restorations are very accurate and do not need much adjustment after they are created by the milling machine. The sooner you visit your dentist for same-day crowns, the sooner you will be comfortable using and showing your teeth again.

Better Smile, No Wait
If you have been hesitating to see the dentist for a crown restoration because of lack of time in your schedule, that is no longer an issue. Call (301) 963-8900 or email at office@sfaa.dentist to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tucker or Dr. Badakhshan in Rockville, MD, about same-day crowns.
