What are Same-Day CEREC Crowns?
Same-day CEREC crowns are designed to cover compromised teeth that have either cracked, broken or fractured. CEREC crowns are made in the same day as your initial visit right in our office. This prevents the need for a temporary crown or having to come back to have the permanent one placed. These crowns are made of durable, realistic ceramic that is matched to your smile.
Why would you need a Same-Day CEREC Crown?
You may need a dental crown if one or more teeth have become compromised. Most often, this occurs when a tooth has cracked, broken or fractured. Patients who have exceptionally large fillings in one or more teeth or those who have recently had a root canal may need a dental crown. Same-day CEREC crowns are durable, lasting and can be done in just one appointment.
What makes you a good candidate for Same-Day CEREC Crowns?
Most of our patients who are interested in utilizing CEREC technology can have this type of crown made for them. The process takes a short period of time and the crown is made specifically to fit your smile. Before having a CEREC crown made, we’ll need to perform an examination to determine if a dental crown is needed. We will then need to prepare the tooth to comfortably sit the crown.
What can be expected during the procedure for Same-Day CEREC Crowns?
You will receive local anesthetic to numb the area that will be receiving the CEREC crown. The compromised tooth is prepared by removing 1-2 mm of the tooth structure. Digital impressions are taken and used to create your new crown. This prevents the need for gooey, uncomfortable dental impressions. The digital impression is then put into our CEREC crown machine where the actual crown is made for you. We’ll place the crown and file it down so that it’s more comfortable for you. The crown procedure is now done and you won’t need to come in for a second visit.
