In the past, it would take several visits to the dentist to get a crown put on your tooth. You would come in to the office for impressions, then get a temporary crown put on, need to come back for another injection, etc. It took too much of everyone’s time for a simple procedure. Well that is all over! Same day crowns are here to ensure you get strong and beautiful teeth in just one visit.
We use a specific type of same day crown called CEREC, which stands for Ceramic Reconstruction. CEREC uses a sophisticated system with 3D photography and CAD/CAM technology to design a virtual dental crown and then create the physical crown while you are still in the dental chair!
Same day crowns are time saving and convenient but there are many other advantages that have made this procedure very popular.
- Comfort: CEREC crowns are made up of ceramic and fit perfectly in your mouth, making them very comfortable and undetectable as you go about your everyday life.
- Prevents injury: Temporary crowns do not always fit properly in your mouth and can come loose, causing injuries or other kinds of issues. Same day crowns reduce the risk of injury by giving you a crown that fits perfect the first time and is permanent. CEREC crowns also require less drilling, allowing the dentist to save most of your real tooth.
- Saving you money: Instead of having to pay for numerous appointments and temporary crowns, with or without insurance, putting a permanent crown in your mouth in one day saves you not only a lot of time, but money as well.
- Functionality: Temporary crowns will affect the way you smile, talk and eat because you have to be extra careful to not damage the short-term, lower quality crown. This is never the case with same day crowns because you get permanent, quality crowns immediately.
If you are a very busy person, taking multiple trips to the dentist is not what you need to be doing with your time. CEREC same day crowns make the process quicker and more convenient for you as well as for your dentists!
