Doctor Corey Bickler Talks about Same Day Crowns
So our office implements the CEREC system. We have the ability to do crowns and bridges in one day. The reason why that’s so phenomenal is you never have to go with a temporary. There are no more goopy impressions. We offer the ability to come in an hour and a half to two hours. You walk out with your final crown. Now why is that so great? Number one, it’s great because you don’t have to come back.
You don’t have to have a second appointment. Overall, the thing that I’m very uncompromising on is the material that we use is second to none. I love it. It is something that is totally reliable. It looks great. It functions great. The fact that we can do it in a short amount of time for you is something that we just love as far as being able to offer the service. Ultimately, an appointment like that for us looks something like this.
You come in, you prepare the tooth. It takes about 25 to 35 minutes roughly to prepare the tooth. And the majority of the appointment, you’re actually waiting in the chair while we’re making the crown on our dental laboratory equipment in the back. And then we seated it.
And ultimately, by the end of your appointment, more than half the time is just you hanging out waiting for your crown. I love the CEREC system. And I’m passionate. I really try my best to continue to learn about the abilities that it has moving forward for patients. And I look forward to offering it to our patient base.
