Same-day Porcelain Crowns
A crown is a cover or “cap” your dentist can put over a tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. A crown can make the tooth stronger or improve the way it looks.
Reasons you may need a crown:
• You have a cavity that is too large for a filling
• You have a tooth that is cracked, worn down, or otherwise weakened
• You have had root canal treatment — the crown will protect the restored tooth
• You want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth and improve your smile
In the past, and currently in most offices, after a tooth was prepared for a crown restoration a goopy impression was taken, a temporary crown was made and cemented, and the patient would come back in two weeks to get numb again and place the final crown. Our office makes same-day Cerec crowns. Our state of the art computer system utilizes CAD CAM, computer assisted design and computer assisted milling, technology to create your crown so that you only have to come for one appointment. There’s no impression, no temporary, and you only need to get numb once. We use cutting edge dental technology to improve patient care and treatment outcomes.
