Cerec® One-Visit Crown Technology
When a tooth experiences significant decay or other damage, a restoration called a dental crown may be needed to restore the tooth’s structure and health. The crown is designed to fit over the tooth, entirely encasing the portion of the tooth that is visible above the gums. This returns the tooth to its optimal shape, size, and structure. Dr. Brian Jacobsen may recommend a dental crown for your smile in order to restore a seriously damaged tooth, to attach a dental bridge, to cover a dental implant, to protect a tooth following root canal therapy, or to strengthen a cracked or weakened tooth.
In the past, the process for creating a custom dental crown in Ephrata, Washington, required at least two visits to our dental office, often weeks apart. Thanks to advances in dental technology and techniques, we can now offer single-visit crowns at Jacobsen Dental. Our dentist uses CEREC® one-visit crown technology, which utilizes a digital impression system and an in-office milling machine. This technology allows us to design, create, and place a custom porcelain crown in just one appointment at our office. CEREC technology ensures that your dental experience is streamlined and comfortable. We welcome you to contact our dental office today to learn more about CEREC one-visit crowns and our other types of dental technology. We are eager to improve your smile!
