Repair Your Damage or Broken Teeth In As Little As One Visit740-214-1301
Dental crowns can repair teeth damaged by breaks, cracks, and severe decay. And dental bridges can replace a missing tooth or teeth. While dental crowns and bridges are versatile restorations, they are not always convenient. Because they’re usually produced by an off-site dental lab, you’ll make several visits to the dentist to get your dental crowns or bridges.Dr. Charles Hawkins on crowns at Hawkins Complete Dental Service Read Transcript
We have a technology here called CEREC. We can do one-day crowns. You come in, we'll get you nice and numb and comfortable, then we reshape your tooth. We bring in a computer, scan it in, and we actually mill it in the back, try it back on your mouth, make sure it's good. The whole time you're sitting there, watching TV. Then we take it back, put it in the oven, cook it, and bring it out and seed it on the patient, and cement it down, and they're ready to go home. The reason it's a better way to use the CEREC one-day is people don't like coming to the dentist, so if you tell them they can knock their two appointments down to one appointment, they're going to take that. People are so busy these days, they just don't have time to come in twice. If we can get it done in one visit, we'll get it done in one visit.
At Hawkins Complete Dental Service, Dr. Charles Hawkins uses a high-tech system called CEREC to design and produce your dental crowns in a single visit to our Zanesville, OH office. No more waiting days or weeks for an outside lab to make your crown! Call 740-214-1301 for same-day convenience. You’ll especially appreciate it if you’re in pain from a broken or cracked tooth.
CEREC’s Same-Day Convenience Offers Many Benefits
In addition to time-saving convenience, CEREC provides other benefits too:Dr. Charles Hawkins on bridges at Hawkins Complete Dental Service Read Transcript
A bridge is a good way to replace a tooth. We do a lot of them here. I try to push patients, if they're gonna get a three-unit bridge or a four-unit bridge, I try to get them to go with the implant so we don't have to wrap some teeth but sometimes, even with a smaller diameter, you just don't have enough bone, so we give them the option of bridges here.
- Precise. CEREC’s software makes it easy for Dr. Hawkins to modify the design, if necessary, so your restoration fits perfectly and looks natural. Making changes to dental crowns produced by an off-site lab will require multiple visits.
- Durable. Your same-day dental crown is made of durable material and should last for years with proper care. You’ll be able to eat all of your favorite foods and enjoy normal oral function.
- No temporaries required. Because you’ll get your final crown in one visit, you don’t have to wear a temporary dental crown. Temporary crowns don’t offer the same level of aesthetics or fit you can expect from a CEREC dental crowns.
