Going to the dentist is never high on anyones to-do listbut it is one of lifes necessitiesespecially if youve experienced a broken tooth or filling. The usual protocol used to be.get an evaluation, return for a crown prep, have a gooey impression taken and then have a temporary made. Then you wait a week or two for the lab to make your crown, return to the office to have the temporary removed and the final crown delivered. The best case scenario would be a total of three visitsbut more often than not, the temporary would pop off or break and youd be back in dental chair having another temporary made, keeping your fingers crossed that this one holds strong. So this time you take the necessary measures to eliminate another visit back to the dentist by eating only soft foods and chewing on the other side of your mouth. Here at Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Siegel has mastered the art of fabricating your final permanent crown in one short visit! Using CEREC technology, Dr. Siegel prepares the tooth, takes a picture and the milling unit carves out your new crown while you wait!
