You Can Go Home Enjoying Your Brand New, Permanent Crown!
What Are Same-Day CEREC Crowns?
CEREC crown technology enables us to create your permanent crown in-office at your initial appointment. This prevents the need to come back when a permanent has been made for you in a local lab. The technology uses a digital impression of the tooth, allowing us to create a remarkable replication of your existing tooth. These crowns are ideal for teeth that have been compromised in any way, such as fracturing, cracking or breaking.
Why is a Same-Day CEREC Crown Needed?
Same-day CEREC crowns are ideal for teeth that have broken, fractured or cracked. The crown protects any of the remaining tooth and provides a more functional surface for chewing and eating. What’s more, the tooth looks natural and enhances your smile. Same-day crowns are durable, lasting for years or even several decades once properly placed.
What Makes You a Viable Candidate For Same-Day CEREC Crowns?
Most patients who need or want to have a crown placed are good candidates for a same-day CEREC crown. The procedure is done easily in our office and requires no additional appointments or visits. The tooth is prepared for the crown and a digital impression is made. The crown is then made for you and smoothed down for a perfect, lasting fit.
What Can You Expect With Same-Day CEREC Crowns?
You will first have the area numbed for your comfort by Dr. Nicolette. The compromised tooth is smoothed and filed to create a seat, or abutment, for the new crown. A specialized digital impression is taken of the dentition and put into our CEREC crown machine. The machine creates the crown while you sit in our office. Once the crown has been made, it’s removed from the machine and put into place. Small adjustments are made to ensure that the crown is both comfortable and fitting to the area. There is no need for a second appointment and you can go home enjoying your brand new, permanent crown.
