Welcome back to the Lapalco Family Dental blog!
Our philosophy has always been to provide old-fashioned service with modern technology. And that supports our mission, which is to make it easy for folks in the Marrero, LA area to achieve healthy, great-looking smiles.
We know that the thought of transforming your smile can seem daunting, especially before you see just how convenient we can make it.
Your mind will be consumed by the particulars. How many visits will you need to make to your dentist’s office? How long will each session take? How much will it set you back financially? Is it worth the hassle? We realize that these are all valid questions and concerns.
Lucky for you, there is a no-hassle, affordable solution: CEREC same-day dental crowns. In just one simple trip to our office, the gifted team here can create a dental crown for you that looks and functions like a natural tooth.
As your trusted partner for oral health, we’ve got you covered when it comes to smile transformations. We hope you sense that we value your time as much as you do, and we wouldn’t want to ever waste any of it unnecessarily. That’s why we invested heavily in CEREC dental crown technology. This is a newfangled system that offers our patients an easy, reliable way to fix a score of dental issues.
We should probably mention that CEREC is medical shorthand for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to remember all that. Just remember that what CEREC means for you is that we can now accomplish in about an hour what may take several weeks at another dentist’s practice.
Around here, the CEREC process begins when we make a digital impression of the tooth or teeth that need work. We then reshape the tooth into an abutment that will support your dental crown.
In earlier eras, and even now at other dental offices, this would require sending your impression to a laboratory. The lab will then craft a dental crown for you as soon as they can get around to filling that order. Unfortunately, it could be weeks before they are able to get to your dental crown and send it back to the dentist. All the while, you’ll be left to wait around and deal with it.
Amazingly, with CEREC, we can now avoid that inconvenience by doing it all in-house, which saves you from having to make an extra trip to the dentist. With CEREC, we use our on-site milling machine to craft your dental crown while you wait.
With the help of modern computer software, we are able to send a digital impression of your teeth to the CEREC machine. The machine turns that information into a dental crown for you.
Essentially, what we are saying is that you can walk into our office with a tooth that has been bothering you, and go home with a natural-looking, more comfortable smile.
We told you it was easy!
You can now fix any number of dental problems without a big commitment of time and money. Our CEREC crowns can quickly repair the appearance of your teeth and restore your biting power. This means that you will be able to smile without embarrassment, and you can eat the foods you love without having to worry.
Make It Happen!
We can’t wait to get started! Even though we offer fast, convenient service, we want it to feel like when you come to visit, it’s really a visit. We talk about your friends, family, how the kids are, and while you’re here we’ll get a little dental work done at the same time. How does that sound?
