The Advantages of CEREC Same Day Crowns

Posted by Thomas Flavin Mar 06,2023

Same-day crowns are an excellent option for patients who need a crown but don’t want to wait for a multi-week-long process. This single-day treatment can be completed in a single visit to the dentist, eliminating the need to wait weeks for a dental crown to be placed.

At Healthy Smiles of Saint Louis, these same-day crowns use CAD/CAM technology to scan a patient’s tooth and create a porcelain crown that fits perfectly in their smile. They’re usually made using ceramic or resin plastics and look very natural in the patient’s mouth, with results that last for many years. Patients won’t have to worry about an uncomfortable temporary crown, which can break or fall off over days or weeks. Instead, they can enjoy a comfortable and durable solution that fits right when they leave the dentist’s office.

The Procedure for Same-Day Crowns

A CEREC crown is a composite or porcelain cap that covers a tooth to restore its appearance and strength. The crown is designed to blend in seamlessly with your other teeth, and CEREC restorations are created in a single visit, so you’ll leave our office with a fully restored smile.

Our dentist will prepare your tooth by removing decay and reshaping the surface in a single appointment. Then, the CEREC milling unit will scan the tooth to create a 3-D image that will be used to design your restoration. Once the design is complete, you’ll receive your new smile. With CEREC same-day crowns, you can restore your mouth’s function and beauty in just one appointment!

The Benefits of Same-Day Crowns

Dental crowns have a long lifespan and can restore a tooth’s function and appearance. You can complete a dental crown procedure in just one appointment using our office's state-of-the-art CEREC milling machine. There’s no need to wait for materials or make multiple appointments to complete your treatment. This saves you time and means you can immediately return to your daily life. Your restoration will also be incredibly durable, so you can feel confident it will last a long time.

When you come into our office for a same-day crown, we will use dental impressions and materials to design the perfect restoration for your damaged tooth. We will then send this information to our in-house milling unit to create your custom crown from a piece of ceramic material in just a few minutes. The CEREC system makes this possible by using CAD/CAM technology to scan your tooth and create the digital model of your restoration. All we need to do is send the digital information to your CEREC machine, and your new crown can be milled while you wait. You’ll leave with a permanent restoration that looks great, feels great, and can return to your life without worrying about having an unsightly metal mouth. With CEREC same-day crowns, you’ll be able to restore your smile fast so you can return to enjoying your favorite.

Creating a same-day crown for you is ideal for emergencies and patients needing a permanent restoration as soon as possible. If you need a dental crown, visit Healthy Smiles of Saint Louis at 4224 Watson Rd, St. Louis, MO 63109, or call (314) 832-1366
