Cerec® Same-Day Dentistry
Digital dentists Dr. Diana Wood and Dr. Melanie Spooner are able to prepare, design and deliver custom dental crowns in a single appointment using patented Cerec® dental technology.
- A dental crown is a common restoration for a broken tooth. Traditionally, a crown required at least 2 appointments to complete, the first being an extended appointment for the tooth preparation and multiple dental impressions. The patient left with a temporary crown and returned 2-3 weeks later to have the permanent crown placed.
With Cerec® CAD-CAM technology, Dr. Wood and Dr. Spooner are able to take digital impressions (no more goopy mess!) and use imaging tools to design your crown in the same visit.
And, the best part, we can mill your crown out of natural-looking ceramic materials right here in our Birmingham dental office, so you leave with your permanent restoration. You don't have to fuss with a temporary crown, or, squeeze a second trip to the dentist into your busy schedule.
Our patients love the convenience that Cerec® technology offers, and the results! Cerec® crowns are available in shades that match existing teeth, so your crown is beautifully blended into your smile. Cerec® technology can also be used for dental bridges, inlays and onlays and cosmetic veneers.
Wood and Spooner General and Cosmetic Dentistry is located near the Vestavia Hills fire station, on Highway 31. With the convenience of one-visit crowns and a central Birmingham location, we think you'll agree that going to the dentist just got easier!
