If your dentist has recommended you receive a dental crown, you might be dreading the process. You don’t have time for multiple appointments or temporary crowns. What if you could get the high-quality restoration you need in just one day? Now you can with CEREC same-day crowns. Dr. Addy embraces the latest dental advancements and techniques to provide his patients with superior care. You’ll get a durable, natural-looking crown after just one appointment.
Dr. Addy can mill your custom-made crown right here in our office to save you time without compromising the results you deserve. After your tooth is prepared, he doesn’t use a messy, foul-tasting material to take an impression. Instead, he uses a digital impression system to create a 3D image of your tooth. This allows him to see every detail to create an accurate restoration the first time by minimizing any room for error.
After he has the image, it integrates with CAD/CAM software. Dr. Addy creates the specifics for your restoration to ensure it matches your exact color, size, and shape needs. Once the specifications are set, he does not send the information to an off-site lab. Instead, it’s sent to our in-office milling machine. Your crown is cut from a single block of all-ceramic material. In less than one hour, your crown is ready to be bonded to your tooth. There’s no need for a temporary crown or a second appointment.
It’s normal to be concerned about the durability of your restoration since it isn’t made of metal and it takes less than 1 hour to create. There’s no reason to worry. You can rest assured your crown is durable. In fact, it can last for a decade or longer with the right aftercare, like maintaining your home oral hygiene habits and visiting your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.
Although metal crowns have a proven track record for success, they have several disadvantages. CEREC crowns resolve the common complaints associated with traditional restorations while also providing an array of additional benefits, including:
Whether you need a crown to fix a damaged tooth or to improve the appearance of one that has cosmetic flaws, CEREC may be the solution for you. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation for same-day crowns.
