Don’t wait to fix your tooth.
If you have a decayed, cracked, or broken tooth, there’s a good chance that you may need a dental crown to repair it. In that situation, you can get your smile back in a single visit to our office in Florence, SC.
Thanks to our CEREC technology, we can craft your crown in our office and place it for you before you leave. It’s just one of the ways we are living up to our name, Advanced Dental Center.

Why You Should Consider CEREC
Ask yourself which of these things would you rather do: spend time with your family or making multiple trips to the dentist? OK, how about going to see a movie or making multiple dental appointments?
As much as we like it when our patients visit us, we are well aware that most people have other things they would prefer to do than sitting in a dental chair.
Knowing this, CEREC is an excellent option if you need to restore a tooth. With this technology, we can scan your teeth, create your new same-day crown with our in-house milling machine while we prepare your tooth, and bond your permanent crown in place in a matter of a few hours.
You’ll have a natural-looking smile, and you will restore the function of a healthy tooth.
Now, compare that to getting a more traditional crown.
You would go to another office, where they would examine your tooth and decide if you were a good candidate for a crown. You may have to make a second appointment so they can prep your tooth and give you a temporary crown.
In the weeks that follow, a dental lab will make your crown to ship back to that other dentist. Then you would need to make another appointment to receive your permanent crowns.
That’s three separate appointments for something that we can do in an afternoon by coming to see us.
Reasons to Get a Crown
We’ve already mentioned three of the most common reasons people get dental crowns.
Broken and cracked teeth can be repaired simply and easily. When decay is too bad for a filling, crowns can restore your smile.
Crowns also can be used to cap a tooth after a root canal treatment. We also place crowns on dental implants to replace missing teeth. Getting an implant-support crown can be important in keeping your smile for life. Leaving that gap in your smile can increase your likelihood of losing more teeth.
Crowns also can provide cosmetic improvements to your smile. If you have a discolored or misshapen tooth, we can change to so your tooth blends in with the rest of your smile.
Get Your Smile Back Where It Should Be
