Dental Crowns In A Single Visit

CEREC Same Day Dental Crowns MNAt Alpine Dentist, our practice has invested in state of the art technology that gives us the ability to offer our patients with same day restorations. Worry about messy impression materials, or hassle with bothersome temporaries no longer. CEREC technology provides our patients with the convenience of metal-free restoration that is designed, fabricated and delivered in a single appointment.

Crowns In An Hour

You go to the dentist because of toothache, or maybe for your biannual checkup, and you get the bad news: you need a crown. You’ll have to schedule two appointments – one for preparation and placement of a temporary crown, and one for placement of the permanent crown. Do you have that kind of time to spare? Between the appointments, your temporary crown could crack or fall out, and then you’d have to make yet another trip to the dentist. A crown is important, though, so you shouldn’t delay treatment. A crown can salvage a tooth that may otherwise have to be removed and replaced with a prosthetic.

CEREC: Chair-side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics

How CEREC Works

After taking a 3D image of your tooth, our CEREC machine can mill a strong, beautiful restoration in about an hour. We’ll permanently place the crown during your single visit, and you’ll leave our office with a full, healthy smile. No second visit needed—once your restoration is in place, you are ready to go!

Tried & True Technology

Millions of patients worldwide have experienced the convenience of CEREC crowns. CEREC Blocs, the material from which the crowns are milled, are backed with 20 years of research, so you can rest assured they offer a durable restoration that you can trust. CEREC can also mill inlays, onlays, and veneers for your convenience. Ask us about CEREC crowns today so you can spend less time in the dentist’s chair and more time sharing your smile.

New Reopening Guidelines

Dear Alpine Dental Patient:

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up- to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.

• We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.

• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.

• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

• We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

• We ask that you contact the office once you arrive in the parking lot to let us know that you have arrived. We will then call you when we are ready to seat you.

• Upon arrival we will asking some screening questions and taking your temperature. Anyone with a temp over 99.5 degrees farenheit will be rescheduled.

• We require you to be wearing a mask when you come in for your appointment.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep our patients and staff safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 763-536-1118 or email at patientcare@alpinedentaloffice.com.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Sincerely,
George Rizkalla, DDS Team
