Same Day Crowns

Same Day Crowns

Same-day crowns, also known as CEREC crowns, are a modern and convenient dental treatment option for restoring damaged or decayed teeth. Unlike traditional crowns that require multiple visits to the dentist and weeks of waiting for a lab to fabricate the crown, same-day crowns offer a streamlined process that can be completed in just one appointment.

How the Process Works

The process of getting same-day crowns, also known as CEREC crowns, is a quick and efficient solution for restoring your smile. First, our dentist will assess the damaged tooth to determine if a crown is necessary. If it is deemed appropriate, they will prepare the tooth by removing any decay or damage and shaping it to accommodate the crown.

Next comes the digital impression stage. Instead of using messy dental putty-like traditional impressions, the dentist will use a small handheld scanner to capture a 3D image of your teeth. This eliminates discomfort and ensures precise measurements.

Once the digital impression is complete, it's time for design! Using special software, the dentist will create a virtual model of your new crown that fits seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. This allows you to see what the final result will look like before any actual work begins.

After designing the crown, it's time for milling! The design data is sent to an in-office milling machine that crafts your custom restoration from high-quality ceramic material within minutes. Once milled, the dentist will check for proper fit and make any necessary adjustments before permanently bonding the crown onto your prepared tooth. With same-day crowns, there's no need for temporary restorations or multiple visits – you leave with a fully restored smile in just one appointment!

The Advantages of Same-Day Crowns

Same-day crowns, also known as CEREC crowns, offer numerous advantages over traditional crown procedures. 

  • One of the biggest advantages is the convenience factor. With same-day crowns, there's no need for multiple visits to the dentist or messy temporary crowns. Everything can be done in a single appointment!
  • Another advantage is the time-saving aspect. Traditional crown procedures can take weeks from start to finish, with patients having to wait for their permanent crowns to be created in a dental lab. With same-day crowns, you can walk out of your appointment with your new crown securely in place.
  • Not only do same-day crowns save time and hassle, but they also provide excellent aesthetics and functionality. The advanced technology used allows dentists to create custom-made ceramic restorations that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
  • Additionally, CEREC technology eliminates the need for uncomfortable impressions that often cause gagging or discomfort. Instead, digital scans are taken of your mouth using a small camera - quick and painless!
  • Since everything is done on-site using computer-aided design (CAD) software and milling machines, there is less room for error compared to traditional methods where human interpretation plays a role.

If you're looking for an efficient way to restore damaged teeth without sacrificing aesthetics or spending too much time at the dentist's office, then considering same-day crowns through CEREC technology may be the perfect solution for you!
