Same-day crowns can transform your smile in a day!

Same-day crowns are fabricated using a technology called CEREC, which stands for 'Chairside Economical Restoration using Esthetic Ceramic'. It is an advanced technology that is being incorporated by many dentists worldwide and allows us to provide all-ceramic crowns in just one visit to the dental practice. They are an amazing alternative to conventional crowns, which usually take at least a couple of visits to the dentist's practice to get them done.

Why should you choose same-day crowns?

What is the procedure involved?

Before the actual procedure begins, the dentist will carry out a thorough examination of the teeth. Depending on how badly the tooth is damaged and how stable its structure is, the dentist draws out a customized treatment plan. Before the treatment begins, he will administer local anesthesia to avoid pain and discomfort. The tooth receiving the crown will be prepared before taking digital x-rays, scans, and pictures.

The data will be entered into the CEREC machine, where the software converts it into a 3D virtual model and displays it on the computer screen. The data will then be transferred to the milling machine, which fabricates the crown from a small block of porcelain. The crown will be finished within just a few minutes and ready to be bonded to the tooth. However, before permanently bonding it, the dentist places it over the tooth and ensures perfect fit and comfort, after which it will be firmly fixed in position using dental adhesives. The best part is that all this can be completed within just one visit to our office, and you wouldn't even need to use a temporary crown!
