Dental crowns have a variety of uses, from restoring a damaged tooth to supporting a dental bridge. Though they are beneficial, they can be somewhat inconvenient as they require you to visit your dentist office two separate times to have the treatment completed. Same-day crowns get rid of this problem, allowing you to enjoy a restored tooth after just one office visit.
Dental crowns are a tooth restoration option that is fitted onto a tooth to cover it completely. Because they go all the way around a tooth, they are commonly referred to as “caps.” Porcelain and ceramic are common materials used to create crowns because they can be colored to match the surrounding teeth, resulting in a more natural-looking restoration. Crowns can be used to:
To have a crown placed, the affected tooth will first have to be prepared. This consists of having it cleaned, then shaved down a small portion to create sufficient room for the crown to fit. Digital impressions will then be taken of the tooth. These impressions will be used by our CEREC system to design and create the custom-made restoration for your tooth, which can then immediately be fit onto your tooth. Our technology eliminates the need for placing a temporary crown and a second appointment.
In addition to being a more efficient treatment, our same-day crown technology offers other benefits.
