What are same-day crowns?

Same-day crowns are dental crowns fabricated using a special technology called the CEREC technology. It is used to produce strong crowns in just one visit.

What are the advantages of same-day crowns?

  • Same-day crowns in Matthews, NC, will save you time: you don’t have to book more than one appointment for your crowns
  • Same-day crowns are made from ceramic: the crown will look natural, just like your original teeth
  • CEREC Same-day crowns don’t require the use of a temporary crown: you will receive your permanent crown on the same day
  • Same-day crowns are strong and durable: your crowns can last up to 15 years with the proper care

What are the steps of the procedure?

Before starting the actual procedure, your dentist will carry out a thorough examination of your teeth. The tooth that needs a crown will be evaluated using x-rays, scans, and tests. Depending on how badly the tooth is damaged, your dentist will customize the treatment plan. The treatment process begins with the use of a local anesthetic to avoid discomfort.

Your dentist will take digital dental impressions of your teeth and jaw. The CEREC machine will produce the 3D model of your teeth. After making sure that the model looks like your desired smile,  the milling machine will instantly create your new crown. Once the dental crown is ready, your dentist will check the color and fit and attach it to your tooth, all on the same day.
