When it comes to getting dental treatment our goal is to treat the problem as efficiently as possible. This is why our Mooresville, NC, family dentist Dr. Scott Langdon is proud to offer patients CEREC crowns.

In the past, getting dental crowns could be quite the process, but not anymore. CEREC crowns make it so much easier to get the restorative dentistry you need as quickly as possible.

What is CEREC?

CEREC is responsible for providing same-day crowns to our patients. Instead of waiting weeks to get your new, custom-made and permanent dental crown, our Mooresville, NC, general dentist can provide you with a long-term crown in just a single appointment.

What are the benefits of CEREC crowns?

Here are some of the advantages of CEREC technology,

Digital Impressions Only

Some people really loathe the putty used to make dental impressions. We totally get it! So you’ll be more than relieved to hear that CEREC doesn’t use these putty-type impressions. Instead, images are captured digitally. These measurements are more accurate than traditional impressions and it only takes a couple of minutes to complete.

Say Goodbye to Waiting

No one likes to wait, especially when they are waiting for a new dental restoration. By providing patients with CEREC crowns, our dental team can streamline the process and ensure that everything is done in-house during your one and only appointment. You will come into the office and leave with your brand new crown.

No Need for Temporary Crowns

With traditional crowns you had to wait weeks for your new restoration, which also meant wearing a temporary crown for a couple of weeks. Most people aren’t thrilled by temporary crowns because they are not nearly as durable and you may need to avoid certain foods. It’s really just a way to protect the tooth until your new crown is made. With CEREC crowns we can place your crown in a single visit, which means that you don't have to worry about temporary crowns.

If you are looking for a family dentist that can provide you with fast restorative dental care including CEREC crowns, then turn to Dr. Langdon and his team at Mooresville, NC. Call their office today at (704) 664-1188 to find out if same-day crowns are right for you.

Discover the ways in which cosmetic dentistry can revitalize your smile.

Boosting confidence may be as simple as improving the appearance of your smile. If you feel a little embarrassed about the shape or color of your teeth, you’re certainly not alone. Fortunately, your Mooresville, NC, dentist, Dr. Scott Langdon, can give you a smile to be proud of with the help of these popular cosmetic treatments:

CEREC Crowns

While dental crowns are typically known for being a restorative dental treatment, don’t forget the fact that a crown covers your tooth and therefore can completely change its shape, size, and color. While crowns are often placed to protect damaged teeth, they can also enhance the tooth’s shape while hiding deep, severe stains. Plus, CEREC crowns allow our Mooresville, NC, cosmetic dentist to create and place your crown in just one appointment.

Porcelain Veneers

Dealing with teeth that are slightly crooked, chipped, or discolored? These thin porcelain layers are bonded to the front of your teeth to completely revamp and alter the overall shape and look of your smile. Veneers can hide or improve:

  • Discolorations and stains
  • Chips and cracks
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Excessively worn teeth
  • Malformed or misshapen teeth
  • Minor crookedness and crowding

Teeth Whitening

If a brighter smile is all that you need to revive your appearance, then professional teeth whitening can give you results in as little as one hour. Chairside whitening ensures a safe, effective treatment that is tailor-fit to your needs. Say goodbye to yellow teeth and get teeth several shades whiter. Additionally, you can talk with our dental team about professional at-home whitening, which also offers amazing results in as little as one week.

Dental Implants

Like crowns, dental implants are often considered a restorative dental treatment; however, they also offer some obvious cosmetic benefits, as well. In fact, you can't find a restoration that more closely resembles a real tooth than dental implants. If you want a lifelong restoration that will look just like the rest of your natural smile, then this will most likely be the perfect option for you.
