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.
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.
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.
