What Are Same-Day Dental Crowns?

Same-day dental crowns revolutionize traditional crown procedures by offering immediate solutions. These crowns are crafted swiftly, typically within a single visit to the dentist, using advanced technology like CAD/CAM systems. These customized same-day crowns fit perfectly, providing both functionality and aesthetics. The process involves digital impressions, eliminating the need for messy molds, and the crowns are milled on-site, ensuring a precise fit.

How Do Same-Day Dental Crowns Work?

CEREC technologyConsultation and Preparation

The process begins with an initial consultation where Dr. Howard assesses your dental condition and discusses the treatment plan. During the preparation phase, the tooth receiving the crown is numbed, and any decay or damage is addressed. Unlike traditional methods, same-day crowns omit the need for messy impressions.

Digital Impressions and Design

Cutting-edge technology like CAD/CAM systems is utilized to create digital impressions of your teeth. These precise images guide the design of the custom crown, ensuring a perfect fit and natural appearance. Dr. Howard meticulously crafts the dental crown virtually, tailored to your unique dental structure.

Milling the Crown

Once the design is finalized, the data is sent to an in-office milling machine. This machine carves the crown from a block of high-quality ceramic or porcelain material, matching the color and shape of your natural teeth. This entire process takes about an hour, producing the final crown swiftly.

Placement and Bonding

After milling, Dr. Howard ensures the new crown part’s fit and aesthetics before proceeding with placement. The newly fabricated crown is checked for accuracy and then securely bonded to the prepared tooth. Any necessary adjustments are made to ensure a comfortable and functional fit.

Final Touches and Polishing

Once the permanent crown part is securely in place, Dr. Howard makes final refinements to ensure proper alignment and bite. The crown is polished to match the sheen of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing result in just one visit.
