Getting a crown used to mean plastic temporary crowns and multiple visits to the dentist. Today’s approach is faster, easier, and more effective. With advanced CEREC® technology, we can create and place a permanent crown in one visit. It’s faster, easier, and more effective.
A crown caps a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size. Crowns strengthen the tooth it covers as well as dramatically improving its appearance. They can also be used to restore a tooth, attach to a bridge, protect teeth from breaking, and cover misshaped teeth.
With Same Day Crowns, you can walk in with a chipped, cracked or damaged tooth, and walk out that same day with a restored smile.
Our revolutionary CEREC® device combines CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology with a specialized digital camera, advanced software and a precision milling machine to allow our experienced team to quickly create a natural-looking ceramic crown on the spot.
Our same day crowning process removes the need for temporary crowns or waiting weeks for permanent crowns to arrive. You’ll leave your visit ready to share your smile.
No need for gunk-filled, messy, and uncomfortable impressions. Instead, CEREC® digitally maps your mouth using a specialized camera to capture a highly detailed digital image of the area where the crown will be placed.
The CEREC® computer aided design (CAD) software helps our experienced team create an accurate 3D model of your new tooth using the detailed digital image. Using the 3D model as a blueprint, the CEREC® system employs Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technology with a high-speed diamond bur and disk to mill a precise restoration while you wait. Within minutes, our team can create a beautifully precise crown just for you.
When the ceramic crown is completed, we ensure the color matches your natural teeth and then place your new crown permanently in your mouth. The result is a beautiful natural looking crown that blends seamlessly with your other teeth.
