Waiting for a crown can make it seem like you are putting your life on hold. Our office has invested in the technology of CEREC same day crowns to make your life easier! Imagine coming in and having everything done in one day. This is exactly what White Center Smiles can do for you.
A traditional crown usually takes a week or two and several visits before the process is complete. Impressions are taken with dental molds and trays, and a temporary crown, or prosthesis, is placed. Sometimes anesthesia is needed twice, which means two injections.
How Do Same Day Crowns Work?
With same day crowns, the impressions are taken digitally. You don’t have to worry about wearing a temporary crown. As far as an anesthetic injection, you will only need one, which is especially beneficial for patients more anxious about the dentist’s office.
Digital impressions are taken with an Omnicam, a small camera that takes accurate images in 3D color. The CEREC software then analyzes your scans and creates several restoration proposals. Next, the milling machine creates a precise restoration with smooth surfaces and fine fissures. The crown is then formed and fired right in our office in a short time.
Repair a Broken Tooth In the Same Day
If you have a cracked or broken tooth and are in need of a crown, same day crowns are available to help you get your smile back to dazzling in no time. In addition to having a beautiful smile, fixing broken teeth is necessary to prevent infection that leads to needing a root canal. Getting a crown can keep your mouth healthy and beautiful for years to come.
