CEREC Dentist | Dr. William J. McKinnen | Long Beach Dentist
When you experience a cracked tooth that requires restorative care, the last thing you want to do is wait days or weeks to receive treatment.
Dr. William J. McKibben proudly offers same-day crowns in Long Beach with CEREC. With this state-of-the-art technology, we design and provide permanent crowns in a single appointment.
The Benefits of CEREC Technology
Without CEREC, receiving crowns typically requires multiple office visits. This process involves taking impressions and using putty. T The experience can be uncomfortable, particularly for those with sensitive gag reflexes. Additionally, patients are given temporary caps while an outside laboratory produces their final restoration. They must avoid using the temporary replacement until they return in two to three weeks for the permanent one.
We offer CEREC crowns to deliver convenient, minimally-invasive treatment. Our practice provides this as an alternative to the cost and time investment associated with conventional restorations.
Advantages of visiting our CEREC dentist include:
- Less time away from work and school
- Proven and lasting quality
- Permanent and visually pleasing results
- All treatment performed in one visit
What to Expect with Same-Day Dentistry from Dr. McKibben
The CEREC system consists of computer-assisted planning software and an intraoral scanner to capture an accurate blueprint of your smile. All that is required is for you to be as comfortable as possible. Patients are welcome to enjoy the amenities our office has available, including conversations with our friendly staff.
Once we gather a digital design of your dental anatomy, our CEREC machine produces a durable and natural-looking crown in about 20 minutes. If the cap is for the front teeth, we color-match restorations to your smile. The crown is then cemented in place, finalizing the procedure. As this process is completed in one day, there is no need for additional appointments. Dr. McKibben and his experienced staff are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. In addition to providing information on the proper caring of your new crown, we work with you to schedule routine visits that fit your busy lifestyle.
Our entire team believes in helping you look and feel your best through efficient, compassionate dental care. If you are wondering if same-day crowns are right for you and are interested in the many advantages CEREC technology has to offer, please call or visit our Long Beach office today.
