If you are like most people, you probably don’t have time to repeatedly visit your dental office over the course of several days or weeks for a crown fitting and application. Furthermore, if your tooth is damaged, it makes sense to remedy the issue as quickly as possible. With same day crowns, your dentist will take all the necessary measurements and apply the crown in just one visit. This will allow you to get back to your regular life with a healthy and attractive smile.
The latest CEREC technology enables your dentist to create precise crowns to fit your mouth. Your dentist will glide a special camera over your teeth to create a digital scan of your mouth. He or she will then use this scan to create a three-dimensional, full-color model of your mouth and teeth. This model will aid your dentist in fabricating a precise, ceramic same day crown in the patented CEREC milling unit. Once the crown is fabricated, your dentist will insert it in your mouth and you will be ready to go home with your new crown. All of this is done in an office without the need for messy and uncomfortable impressions or molds.
Cutting edge CEREC technology will help your dentist create same day crowns that flawlessly match your other teeth. Old-fashioned crowns often stood out against your other teeth, drawing attention to a problem area. Old-fashioned crowns were sometimes even made from garish materials such as gold or other metal alloys. Thankfully, those days are over and your dentist will be able to quickly and expertly fabricate a same day crown that will protect your oral health, while being unnoticeable when compared to your other teeth.
