What is a “same-day” crown?
Dental crowns are used to repair teeth that have suffered from extensive decay or damage, whether from an accident, excessive wear, or deteriorated fillings. To better serve our patients, we’ve invested in a high-tech CEREC® milling machine that allows us to design, fabricate and place crowns in a single appointment!
CEREC® stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or Ceramic Reconstruction. Rather than using messy goop to take impressions and sending them to a dental laboratory to be created, CEREC® uses computer-aided design and manufacturing technology (CAD/CAM) to design, fabricate and place restorations chairside in a single visit.
What are the benefits of CEREC® same-day crowns?
There are many benefits in restoring teeth with CEREC® same-day crowns, including:
- Restore health
- Restore function
- Restore aesthetics
- Digital impressions
- No temporaries
- No return appointments
- Crowns in a day
