Get a Crown in a Day
If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, it’s important to get help right away, but we understand that it can be hard to find the time to come in for multiple appointments. That’s why we offer CEREC same-day crowns. With CEREC technology, we can build and place a crown in just one short appointment, rather than requiring you to come back for multiple visits. To learn more about CEREC same-day crowns or book a consultation with Dr. Will, contact us today!
CEREC Crowns Vs. Traditional Crowns
What’s the Difference?
Traditional crowns are typically created in a third-party dental lab and are made out of porcelain. With traditional crowns, a dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them to an outside lab where your crown will be manufactured. This process can take up to 3-4 weeks. Traditional crowns are very strong and durable, but the process of creating one involves multiple visits, wearing an uncomfortable temporary crown, and a large time commitment.
CEREC crowns are created by a machine in our office that can trim a crown out of a solid block of porcelain in just a few minutes, based on digital scans and images of your teeth. No impressions are necessary. Your mouth is simply scanned, and then the information is uploaded to manufacture your crown. Once this is complete, your new crown can be placed on the same day.
How Do I Get a Same-Day Crown?
Understanding The Process
To begin the CEREC crown process, your mouth will be numbed and Dr. Will will trim the tooth which will be receiving the dental crown. Next, he will use a special CEREC scanning tool to take a 3D scan of the inside of your mouth. After this, he will design your crown using our CEREC machine. It takes just a few minutes to create your crown from a block of porcelain using our CEREC technology. When your crown is ready, Dr. Will will check it for proper fit. Once the crown fits perfectly, it will be bonded into place permanently. The entire process usually takes less than 2 hours, so treatment can fit into even the busiest schedules.
