COLUMBUS, GA, August 30, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When a patient damages or loses a tooth, it can be discouraging to wait multiple visits before the tooth is repaired. To improve patients' experiences, Dr. Edward Smith, a Columbus dentist, is excited to offer same day crowns for patients in Columbus. With advancements in technology, Dr. Smith can now restore a damaged smile with CEREC in one simple visit.
"When someone loses or damages a tooth, they never want to wait multiple visits before their smile can be restored. With advancements in dentistry I can now improve my patients' smiles in one easy visit with CEREC. It allows me to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings-saving my patients time," said Dr. Edward Smith about Columbus same day crowns with CEREC technology.
CEREC, which stands for Ceramic Reconstruction, is a recent innovation that Dr. Edward Smith, a dentist in Columbus, is using to provide natural looking crowns faster than traditional crown procedures. This is a computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing, or CAD-CAM, for the creation of dental crowns, which is created by a computer to fit each patient's teeth perfectly.
With the CEREC system, Dr. Smith, a Columbus dentist, can create beautiful life-like porcelain restorations for restoring damaged teeth. An infrared camera takes images of the damaged tooth after shaping, and a CAD-CAM computer program immediately downloads the images of a patient's teeth to create a three-dimensional virtual model that can be viewed and manipulated on the computer monitor. The computer-aided technology eliminates the laboratory step in manufacturing crowns, which allows for treatment to be completed in one visit.
Restoring a tooth, or teeth, with CEREC brings an array of benefits to a person's smile. One of the main benefits is that they can be created in a single visit, which saves time for patients and Dr. Smith, a Columbus, GA dentist. Potential discomfort is eliminated because there is no need for a temporary crown between procedures, which allows for a more comfortable experience. CEREC crowns also do not contain any metal, allowing them to be esthetically pleasing and natural looking.
CEREC allows Dr. Edward Smith to create a fully restored, natural-looking crown in one simple visit. It eliminates messy impressions, and discomfort of temporary crowns. Patients who are in need of a dental restoration should contact Dr. Edward Smith for more information on how CEREC works and if it is an appropriate solution for bringing their smile back to life.
