With CEREC, you can get a dental crown in one day.

Dental crowns tend to be part of many adults’ dental care. As we get older, our teeth can become damaged for various reasons, such as injury or tooth decay. When our teeth begin to lose their shape or size, dental crowns can be placed over them to restore their shape, strength, size, and overall appearance.

But, traditionally, receiving dental crowns has been a time-consuming process, requiring two lengthy appointments spread out over a couple of weeks. For busy adults in need of tooth restoration, this time commitment can be an overwhelming and painful experience.

Luckily, with modern-day advancements in dental technology, receiving the dental crowns you need can be a simple and quick process.

Why do people dislike getting a dental crown?

We understand that going to the dentist is not at the top of the fun list for most adults. In fact, we can only guess that a trip to the dentist falls pretty close to the bottom of the list. And we get it. In a world full of choices and busy schedules, seeking out time for multiple dental appointments can really press on your other priorities.

When it comes to dental crowns, the primary reasons people dislike them are because of the time commitment, the cost, and discomfort during the impression process. Thankfully, these concerns are pretty much a thing of the past because of CEREC single visit, same day crowns.

Benefits of CEREC Same Day Dental Crowns

Though the process for traditional crowns has been made easier throughout the years, many patients are still turning to CEREC same day crowns because of its many benefits. Specifically, if you are considering a CEREC crown, you should anticipate the following four benefits.

1. Cost

Dental crowns can get expensive, especially if you don’t have dental insurance. But what many people don’t realize is that the cost of not getting a dental crown can be far greater down the road. And with insurance or CareCredit, your crown can be far more affordable and attainable than you might realize.

2. No Ooey-Gooey Impressions

With a CEREC crown, a camera is used to take detailed images of the inside of your mouth. These pictures are then used to create digital impressions. This means you no longer have to bite into a gooey substance to have impressions made of your teeth. And that means, no more triggering your gag reflex.

3. Speed

In the past, receiving traditional crowns often took two or more appointments because the impressions needed to be sent off-site to be created in a lab. But with CEREC, your crown can be made in just one appointment. This means you can get back to your life faster.

4. Natural

Your new CEREC crown will feel just like your natural teeth. Not only that, but your same day crown is durable and will last for years to come. You can rest assured that your new crown will look just as natural as those created in a lab. Your dentist will check the color, shade, and fit of your new CEREC crown before bonding it to your tooth, making sure you have the best possible solution for your smile.

The process for same day crowns is easy-peasy for single-tooth restoration.

If you need a crown for single-tooth restoration, CEREC same day crowns might be the perfect option for you. After your dentist determines if you are a candidate, you will go through the following steps.

  1. Your dentist will administer a low-grade localized anesthetic to numb the problematic tooth.
  2. Your tooth will be gently cleaned, and your dentist will remove as much of the damaged tooth material as possible.
  3. Your dentist will take an optical impression, which means no more gooey impressions that can make you gag.
  4. A three-dimensional image of your tooth will be created and sent to an in-office milling machine.
  5. About 20 minutes later, your dentist will bond the new crown to your damaged tooth, shaping it for a proper fit and polishing it to achieve a natural look and feel.

This entire process will take place during one appointment at your dentists’ office. With CEREC, there is no need to send anything off-site to a lab, and you can get in and out and back to your other priorities quickly, with little to no discomfort or pain.
