Dental crowns are used in a variety of situations. They’re the finishing touch to restore a tooth after a root canal or dental implant placement. Crowns can help strengthen teeth damaged by severe decay, and they’re used to connect a dental bridge that replaces missing teeth. Besides being very versatile, dental crowns are a durable way to help protect the health of your smile. Here’s a little bit more about this restorative service provided by Summit Family Dentistry.
Same-Day Dental Crowns
Traditionally, it takes multiple visits to get a dental crown. This is because you normally have to go into your dentist’s office for the impressions and image-taking, wait for an off-site dental lab to make your crown, and then come back when that’s done to get the crown fit and placed. At Summit Family Dentistry, we’re proud to have advanced technology called the CEREC system, which allows us to do all of that in one single visit.
How Can You Get a Crown in a Day?
The state-of-the-art CEREC system makes getting a crown an efficient, start-to-finish process. First, we take digital images which the CEREC machine uses to design your crown. Then the machine mills the crown in our office using the specifications. This eliminates the need for uncomfortable molds and second visits. You’ll be able to come into our practice for your appointment and leave that same day with your durable, well-fitting, dental crown.
How Long Dental Crowns Last
You may be wondering if a dental crown made with CEREC is still durable. The answer is yes! CEREC crowns are made from a strong porcelain material that is designed to be long-lasting.
