Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

Need a dental crown? Skip the wait: Yadkinville dentist offers same-day CEREC crowns

CEREC Crowns Dentist at Virtue Dental Care in Yadkinville NC Area

If you have ever had a traditional dental crown placed before, you likely remember the time-consuming and inconvenient process, requiring multiple trips to the dentist, “babying” a temporary crown, and uncomfortable putty dental impressions. At Virtue Dental Care, holistic dentists Dr. William Virtue and Dr. Mary Katherine Taylor offer Yadkinville, North Carolina area patients a better alternative: CEREC same-day crowns.

How CEREC crowns work

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and uses computer-aided drafting and manufacturing technology, to dramatically reduce the time it takes to place a new dental crown or other beautiful, natural-looking porcelain restorations such as inlays or onlays. In the span of just one office visit, we can prepare your tooth and place your permanent crown, so you are free to enjoy your daily activities without weeks of waiting.

  • First, the tooth will be prepared by shaping it as needed to fit the crown properly.
  • Then, we create digital dental impressions of the area that are sent directly to the CEREC machine in the office, rather than physical impressions that must be shipped out to a lab. In addition to being much quicker than traditional impressions, digital impressions are much more precise and less error-prone, which means that your new crown will have a perfect fit.
  • Based on the digital impressions, your new crown is then fabricated from a block of high-quality dental ceramic while you wait comfortably, catching up on your emails or a good book.
  • After it is made, it will be tried out on your tooth, and when you are happy with the fit, the dentist will cement it onto your tooth with a strong bonding agent, and you are free to go!

In addition to being a quicker, more precise way of creating dental restorations, CEREC technology also allows us to custom-shade your restoration so that it perfectly matches your existing teeth and blends in naturally with your smile.
