When patients’ teeth have been significantly weakened from injury or decay, they want to regain a full, healthy smile as soon as possible. Dental crowns are a reliable and effective way of protecting teeth from further damage, but they normally require multiple office visits before the procedure is complete. Now, with in-office CEREC, our patients can receive their crowns and other ceramic restorations on the same day as their initial appointment. If you are in need of crowns for one or more teeth, here is what you can expect from the efficient technology offered at our Edmonton office.
