Sometimes, the dreaded things happen. You’re eating your favorite, crunchy dish at dinner and you hear and uncomfortable crunch in the back of your mouth. You know what just happened. Your old, traditional crown just broke. You dread the time you must spend going back and forth to the dentist’s office to get a temporary crown and then your real, replacement crown from the lab. Thankfully, with technology advancements in dentistry, knowing that you must get a crown doesn’t have to be so time consuming anymore! With Same day crowns, you can get a new crown in just one visit to the dentist.

What are Same Day Crowns?

A crown is a cap, shaped like a tooth, that is placed over a tooth that has been damaged, according to WebMD. It strengthens your tooth and improves its appearance. There are multiple reasons you may need a crown, such as:

  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • An extremely discolored tooth
  • A weak tooth needs strengthened
  • Helping to hold in a dental bridge
  • Making a cosmetic alteration

Same day crowns, also known as CEREC crowns, are very similar to traditional crowns, except these crowns can be made within the dentist’s office. Read more about the CEREC technology that can restore your smile in a single visit.

How does the Process Work?

At Premier Dental, we will begin the CEREC crown process by taking a 3D image of your tooth to get an extremely accurate scale for your crown. Once this is completed, we use computer-aided design to create your custom porcelain crown in house. After waiting a few minutes, your porcelain crown will be completed and can be placed in your mouth. This process eliminates the need for temporary crowns and multiple dentist visits. It also eliminates the use of uncomfortable dental putty and allows you to get back to your day in no time! Many patients report that the same day crown process is easy and comfortable.

Same Day Crowns Are Quick, Easy, and Reliable

Same day crowns are fact, not fiction at Premier Dental. They cost the same as any traditional crown, without the time and hassle of traditional crowns. CEREC crowns are reliable, match your teeth color and size accurately, and lasts as long as a traditional crown. To keep your new CEREC crown in tip-top shape, avoid chewy foods for the next few hours and continue with your normal oral hygiene routine.
