Do you have a damaged or weakened tooth? You may need a dental crown to restore it back to full health. Traditionally, it takes a couple of appointments to get one because you have to wait for an off-site lab to receive your case, create the crown, and send it back. At The Smile Studio, we can do all of that at our office, the same day you visit with our state-of-the-art CEREC technology.Contact Us
How CEREC® Works
First, we take digital images of the tooth in need of a crown. We then send these to the CEREC imaging software so it can create a 3D model of the restoration. Once that is complete and everything looks good, we send that information to our on-site milling unit. In around 15 minutes, your custom crown will be finished. Dr. Jackson will place the crown, make any necessary modifications, and ensure a secure fit. That’s it! Then you’ll be free to go back to your day with a restored smile.
Benefits of Same-Day Dental Crowns
CEREC crowns are durable and custom designed to look natural and match the color of your other teeth. Here are some of the other main benefits of going with same-day dental crowns:
- Save Time — It almost goes without saying that the biggest draw to same-day crowns is that you save a significant amount of time. Getting everything done in one visit means less time living with a damaged tooth.
- No Uncomfortable Temporaries — When you have to get your crown made off-site, you have to wear a temporary crown, which is often uncomfortable, while you wait to get called back in. Instead, you get the real deal that same day.
- No Messy Impressions — CEREC technology has digital imaging, which replaces the need for those messy impression trays. The imaging process is quick and easy!
