For many people who experience a problem with a tooth, such as damage to its structure or other significant problems, a dental crown is often the best solution for restoring the tooth. Designed to replicate a tooth’s visible crown structure, which rests above the gum line, a dental crown can be bonded over the tooth to completely cap this structure. For patients who can benefit from a dental crown, we can often design their restorative treatment to be completed in just a single day.
Restoring your tooth with a dental crown
Dental crowns are among the most popular types of restorative dental treatment, and they can serve a wide variety of purposes when it comes to restoring, improving, or replacing healthy, natural teeth. Because it’s designed to completely cap the tooth, a custom-designed dental crown is able to protect the natural tooth structure when it’s become compromised, stopping any structural damage from getting worse and protecting the tooth from the pressure of your bite. However, traditionally, preparing your tooth, designing the restoration, having it crafted, and finally placing it could take several weeks.
Utilizing CEREC technology for same-day treatment
To shorten the smile restoration process, we utilize advanced CEREC technology to eliminate the need to wait for your crown to be crafted. CEREC digital imaging and milling technologies allow us to measure your tooth and take digital molds of the dental ridges for highly precise treatment planning. The measurements are instantly sent to an on-site milling machine, which crafts your custom dental crown according to the highly precise specifications. The entire process can be completed before you leave the office, allowing you to restore your tooth and smile in significantly less time.
Do you qualify for a same-day crown?
If your tooth is compromised in a way that warrants a dental crown to restore it, then you may be a good candidate for a same-day dental crown. For example, like their traditional versions, same-day dental crowns can be an ideal solution for restoring teeth that are cracked, fractured, broken, or severely worn-down. Because the porcelain used to create your dental restoration is customized to closely mimic the appearance of your healthy, natural tooth structure, same-day crowns can also be utilized to improve a tooth’s cosmetic appearance.
