Boulder Dentist Serving Denver, Ft. Collins & Nearby Areas in Colorado
Perhaps you know the old routine. You visit the dentist, you need a dental crown. The dentist prepares the tooth, takes an impression and installs a temporary crown. You then wait two weeks and return to the dentist, and he or she installs the permanent dental crown. And if the fit isn't perfect, then it goes back to the lab and you wait again, and return to the dentist again.
But now, that's all changed. At Adler Advanced Dentistry in Boulder:
- There's no more waiting for the lab
- Dental crowns built and installed in one hour
- No return trips to the dentist
- Natural color crowns
- Millions of CEREC crowns have been placed nationally
- Patients love it!
How Do One-Visit Crowns Work?
At Adler Advanced Dentistry we can reduce that two-week waiting period and two or three office visits down to just a single visit for dental crowns! This 21st century technology is called CEREC, which is a precision computer-aided design and milling device. It allows us to create a permanent dental crown in just a few minutes in our Boulder dental office.
Dr. Adler was one of the first dentists on the Colorado Front Range to employ the CEREC technology in his practice.
What Is CEREC?
The CEREC system allows us to repair a damaged tooth in about an hour. We no longer take impressions or create temporaries, and it enables Dr. Adler to satisfy patients seeking a long-lasting, esthetic alternative to silver or plastic fillings. This precision procedure eliminates further tooth cracking, risk of future root canals.
To make the restoration, Dr. Adler first paints a reflective powder over the prepared tooth. Using a special camera, he takes an accurate picture of the tooth which is then displayed on a computer screen, where he designs the restoration. Then CEREC takes over and automatically shapes the restoration. Finally, the dental crown restoration is permanently bonded in place.
