Most dental practices require at least two visits to complete a dental crown. Fortunately, the team at All Smiles Dental near Bridgeport, West Virginia proudly offers CEREC technology, which allows for one-visit dentistry. Read on to learn more about same-day dental crowns and other restorations available at our state-of-the-art facility.
What are same-day dental crowns?
Same-day dental crowns, also known as same-appointment restorations or CEREC restorations, are dental crowns and other types of prosthetic dental restorations that can be manufactured and placed in a single visit to the dentist’s office. Unlike traditional crowns, which require two appointments with your dentist to complete (one appointment for impression taking and lab work and one appointment for placement), same-day dental crowns can be fabricated in minutes using advanced CAD/CAM technology. With this innovative technology, your dentist will use 3D imaging software to create a digital image of your mouth and teeth. Using this image, your dentist then creates a precise mockup of what your new tooth or teeth will look like. The restoration is then created right in the office while you wait, within 20 minutes, and then bonded into place. All of this is completed in a single visit and eliminates the need to send messy impressions to an outside laboratory for the new dental crown.
What are the benefits of CEREC same-day crowns?
If you have an unexpected dental emergency and need dental work completed quickly, same-day dental crowns may be the ideal choice for you. Since they can be placed in one appointment using cutting-edge technology, you’ll avoid spending time without your natural teeth. Additionally, many patients find that same-day restorations are more comfortable than traditional crowns because they don’t require two separate appointments. Patients love not missing work twice for the same tooth.
