If you have a damaged tooth, your dentist might recommend a dental procedure to preserve it. Here at Sedona Dental in Westminster, CO, we offer same-day crowns and standard crowns and for saving an affected tooth’s function and appearance. Our dentists, Dr. Alex Acevedo, Dr. Jack Choi, or Dr. Alexander Park, will determine the most suitable type of dental restoration fit for your needs.
Same-day crowns are placed in just one appointment. Basically, same-day crowns, also known as CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) crowns are crafted from very durable ceramic and is designed, fabricated, and placed with the use of computer-assisted technology.
The Same-Day Crown Procedure
First, digital images of the affected tooth will be taken and will be used as the basis for creating the dental crown model. This model will be created using CAD/CAM or computer-aided design and manufacturing. The machine will then take your tooth’s model and fabricate a 3D dental crown made from ceramic. This entire procedure will only take 15 minutes or so. Your dentist in Westminster, CO, will then polish your same-day crown and places it on your tooth, and you’re done!
How You Can Benefit From Same-Day Crowns
Get a Dental Crown in Just One Dental Appointment
Instead of waiting for a week or two to be fitted with a dental crown, you can come in for your same-day crown appointment and walk out of your dentist’s office with your new crown in just one visit. You also won’t have to worry about being extra careful of the temporary crown, because you won’t have a need for it when you get a same-day crown.
A Durable Tooth Restoration
Conventional dental crowns can be made of different materials, with some being more durable than others. Same-day crowns, on the other hand, are always manufactured from ceramic material, which is extremely durable and stain-resistant. These are qualities that ensure your dental crown will last before it requires touchups or replacing.
A Very Realistic-Looking Restoration
Dental crowns are usually made to appear as close to real teeth as possible. Same-day crowns, however, don’t have that metalcore that conventional crowns have, so they look more realistic and more closely mimic the look of the adjacent teeth.
