It's called CEREC, and it's the same day. It's basically crowns in an hour type of thing. The dentistry, the level of dentistry that we can provide for this is so amazing because we prepare the teeth, we scan it with a camera inside your mouth, we show it right there on the screen. You're going to see it. We draw the margins. We know exactly how this crown is going to fit. We get the full shape and contour design right there chairside. You're going to get to see it, and then in the milling room, we just press the button, and in about 10-15 minutes, that crown is fully milled. We use the same materials, the best materials in the world, that all the major labs around the world, they use the exact same materials. It's called e.max. That's primarily the material that we choose to use because of its strength and durability, and its beauty.
Patients love it because if they need one or many crowns, usually we can get it all done same day. If they're doing a lot of crowns, I'm going to send those out to the laboratory to have them fabricated just so the patient doesn't have to be here so long during that appointment, but generally if they need one or two or three crowns, we're going to do it for them same day, same visit with the CEREC technology, and patients love that.
