One of the marvels of modern dentistry, CEREC Same-Day Crowns allow us to provide patients with custom-made dental crowns in just one visit. This eliminates having to wait for a crown to be built in a dental laboratory. Our same-day crowns look natural, and they offer the same performance that you would expect out of any top-quality restoration.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped structures that are placed at the site of lost teeth or over damaged teeth to restore their function and appearance. In the past, a patient would normally have to wait for days, or even weeks, for a customized replacement to be built. However, CEREC Same-Day crowns have all but eliminated this wait, and a patient can now receive a brand-new customized restoration in one visit to our office.
Our Same-Day crowns are constructed from a solid block of ceramic and resin material. We start by taking digital photographs of the patient’s teeth. Next, we use the photographs, along with computer-aided design (CAD) technology, to customize a permanent dental crown for the patient. After carefully finalizing the design, we will upload it to a special machine that is capable of producing a real-life replica of the design in a matter of minutes.
It usually takes about 10 to 20 minutes to customize the dental crown. After it has been built, the same-day crown can be applied in the same way as any other dental crown. Our patients are thrilled with their new same-day crowns that look natural and offer outstanding performance.
