CEREC Same-Day Crowns in Astoria, NY at Master Dental

When you have a cracked or decayed tooth, seeking restorative dentistry to fix your smile is essential. By providing a dental prosthetic, such as a crown or inlay/onlay, Dr. Malafis is able to help prevent further damage to your tooth and preserve the aesthetic of your smile. At Master Dental, we have streamlined the process of getting dental restorations. With CEREC from our Astoria dental office, you can receive a permanent crown in just one visit.

Comfortable, Efficient CEREC Restorations

CEREC technology combines the use of 3D, digital technology and equipment that directly fabricates life-like restorations. With digital scans provided by CEREC’s computer software, Dr. Malafis can get precise details about your smile and use that information to create your new crown, inlay, or onlay. CEREC provides the following benefits for patients seeking restorative and cosmetic treatment:

More Reliable Final Results – CEREC’s in-house system allows Dr. Malafis to maintain control over the entire restorative treatment process. From planning to fabrication and final fit, there are no middle men or outside influences that impact the appearance and compatibility of your permanent crown.

One Less Visit  – Our CEREC crowns are ready to be permanently bonded in place in just one visit, where traditional, lab-created crowns are fabricated in two weeks, on average. With this process, patients have to return for at least a second visit, assuming the restoration fits as intended, and a second round of local anesthetic. However, with CEREC in Astoria, we can provide completed treatment in just one appointment.

Natural Aesthetic – In-office crowns are milled from a solid block of porcelain crowns, which looks highly similar to natural dental enamel. As opposed to metal-based crowns that display a gray line at the edge of soft tissue over time, all porcelain CEREC crowns look just like your own teeth.

Our patients also appreciate the level of comfort that CEREC is able to offer during treatment planning. While many patients find that traditional impression trays are messy and trigger a gag reflex, our 3D scans are simple and non-invasive.

One-Visit Crowns, Inlays and Onlays in Astoria, NY

CEREC’s computer generated images and digital impressions help Dr. Malafis to achieve a better and more reliable fit for your dental crown or inlay and onlay. Instead of using impression molds, which may not provide a full picture of a patient’s smile, 3D impressions digitally recreate the shape and position of existing teeth, so that Dr. Malafis can model your new restoration to fit comfortable.

Our patients love the convenience and ease of restoring their smiles with same-day CEREC crowns and enjoy getting to see the advancements in dental technology that 3D images and milling machines offer. In only an hour and a half, patients in need of tooth-colored and durable restorations can achieve renewed smiles.

    I’ve been coming to Master Dental for about 8 years. Always greeted by nice staff and Dr. Malafis always takes care of my smile. My wife and kids wouldn’t think of going anywhere else.
