Normally, when someone needs a dental crown, whether to restore a damaged tooth or to complete a treatment like root canal therapy, it can take multiple trips to the dentist. During the first visit, an impression of the tooth being treated is taken so that a custom crown can be made. Then, that information is sent off to a lab. When the lab is finished making your dental crown a couple of weeks later, you come back for the second visit where the crown is actually placed. Now what if we told you that there’s another option where you can get all of that done in a single visit?
Same-day smile restorations are possible thanks to something called CEREC technology, which allows us to make and place a dental crown from our office in just one appointment. Here’s how it works:
The Process of Getting a Same-Day Crown
So you’ve heard what it’s like to get a traditional dental crown, so now we’ll tell you what it’s like getting a same-day crown. You’ll come into our office, and we’ll take a digital impression of the tooth (no goopy impression material in those uncomfortable trays!). Then, we’ll send that information to the advanced imaging software to design your custom crown right then and there. After that, the milling unit in the machine makes the crown we’ve designed on-site. Finally, we place the crown and make any necessary adjustments.
The Benefit to You
The biggest benefit of getting a same-day smile restoration is that you spend less time waiting for your dental treatment and more time enjoying the results. Plus, you don’t have to rearrange your schedule multiple times for multiple trips to the dentist. All you need is one appointment and you’ll be good to go!
