Getting a dental crown used to be a lengthy procedure that required multiple visits to the dentist, but that is no longer the case thanks to CEREC offered by Dr. James Phelan and Dr. Tyler Phelan. CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a major advance in the field of dentistry. With this technology, you can have your dental crown in two hours or less. That means no more long visits or wearing a temporary dental crown until your permanent one is ready.

Besides the speediness of receiving CEREC, some of the other benefits are that the crown it creates fits on top of your tooth precisely and the entire process is much neater. You don’t have to worry about sticky impressions or fragile temporary restorations any longer.

The precise fit means that your new crown looks much more attractive than a typical dental crown would look. Your South Attleboro MA dentist makes sure that it matches the shade of your other teeth so it looks completely natural. CEREC restorations are also free of metal.

What You Should Know About Dental Crowns

Exquisite Smiles uses the most conservative form of treatment whenever possible. Getting a dental crown allows you to save your natural tooth, which is always our goal. Your new crown should last up to 15 years with appropriate hygiene. Crowns are appropriate for the following dental problems:

  • Provides a covering for a dental implant
  • Keeps dental bridges and other restorations in place
  • Covers discolored or misshapen teeth
  • Protects teeth after receiving a root canal or large filling
  • Restores a broken, cracked, decayed, or worn tooth

If you need a crown, take advantage of our CEREC technology to receive it as quickly as possible. We encourage you to contact us at our South Attleboro MA office today to request your initial consultation.
