Who doesn’t want to get things done faster? With so many modern conveniences available to you in your life, it really stands out when something is slow. That’s the traditional dental crown process. Conventional dental crowns are made by taking measurements of your teeth and sending them off to a lab for fabrication. In the meantime, you’re given a temporary dental crown that probably doesn’t fit quite right and might be uncomfortable. You may have to wait for a couple of weeks before your follow-up appointment and personalized dental crown. The restoration process can be better, and it is.
Same-Day Dental Crowns Are Made Possible by CEREC
What if you could eliminate all of the waiting and follow-up appointments associated with receiving your dental crown? That would reduce discomfort and hassle too. This is possible, thanks to CEREC technology. This machine can use specifications to fabricate your dental crown in a matter of minutes. The accurately crafted restoration can then be placed over your vulnerable tooth, protecting it right away. The crown will be made using precise measurements of your actual mouth, so it will fit comfortably alongside your other teeth.
Digital Imaging Increases Accuracy and Reduces Secondary Visits
In addition to on-site fabrication, same-day dental crowns are made possible by advanced, 3D-imaging technology. Your dentist can use a camera to create an accurate 3D model of your teeth. This measures not only the tooth that needs a dental crown, but the surrounding teeth as well. Having an accurate model allows your dentist to fabricate your dental crown to exact specifications. Having this assurance reduces the likelihood of error and gives you peace of mind that your dental crown will fit comfortably on your tooth and alongside your other teeth.
Same-Day Crowns Get Rid of Uncomfortable Temporary Crowns
During the traditional method of dental crown fabrication, you receive a temporary crown while you wait for your actual crown to be fabricated. These temporary crowns are not made to your specifications, so they likely won’t fit you in an optimal manner. This may cause discomfort or pain while you wait for your finished crown. You still want your vulnerable tooth to be protected. A same-day dental crown is fabricated during your visit and ensures that you have a comfortable crown on the day of your appointment, so you don’t have to wait in discomfort.
