Same-day crowns are a dental procedure that designs, customizes, and places a crown in a patient’s smile in a single appointment. This eliminates the need for temporary crowns and a follow-up appointment. Same-day crowns use a computer-aided design and milling system to create a more precise, custom restoration.
How are same-day crowns made?
CEREC same-day crowns can be completed in only one appointment. CEREC crowns are made from porcelain, which mimics the look and feel of natural teeth. That means no one will be able to tell a CEREC crown from your natural teeth.
A CEREC crown is placed in a dentist’s office using a special camera. Our dentist will prep your tooth and then scan it using the CEREC camera. The scanned data is sent to our in-office milling machine. The machine mills your CEREC crown out of a block of porcelain. We place the crown on your tooth and make adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.
In as little as two hours, we can design and fabricate your CEREC same-day crown. Your crown will be custom fitted to your tooth, and it will blend seamlessly with your smile. At your follow-up appointment, we’ll confirm that your new dental crown is comfortable and fits properly. If any changes are required, we will tend to them.
What are the benefits of same-day crowns?
Same-day crowns may be the best option for you to restore your dental health and smile. Here are a few reasons why same-day crowns may be right for you:
- Same-day crowns offer a quick procedure as they are a one-visit procedure. No need to have a temporary crown placed and go back to have a crown placed.
- Same-day crowns are a great option for those who cannot tolerate wearing temporary crowns or for those who do not have time to leave and come back for a second appointment.
- CEREC crowns look exactly like your natural teeth, making them indistinguishable from the adjoining teeth.
- The procedure of scanning the teeth and making their mold is done using digital technology. This avoids the need for placing rubber-like putty in the mouth.
