Asking Questions About Same-Day Crowns

It may be hard to believe that a full, permanent dental crown that imitates your tooth structure can be ready for you after just one appointment with your dentist. Thanks to CEREC technology, our Redmond, OR dental office can actually design, create, and place your restoration in the course of one appointment, making your restorative treatment surprisingly convenient! Same-day crowns help patients recover faster from physical tooth injuries as well as severe cavities. While it can be a relief to know that prompt care is available, you should continue to make preventive care a priority. At regular exams, we can help you address early signs of decay, and we can also help you lower your likelihood of developing a cavity.

Can I Really Have A Permanent Crown After One Appointment?

It may be hard to believe that your permanent crown can be ready in just one appointment. If you have undergone treatment in the past that called for a crown, you may have gone through a process that called for multiple appointments. CEREC technology eliminates the need for a follow-up visit. With the equipment at our office, we can take a digital impression of your tooth, design your restoration, then produce it on-site with a milling machine. At this point, we are ready to take care of you with your personalized restoration!

What Will My Crown Look Like?

A crown designed with CEREC technology can imitate your healthy tooth structure. The ceramic material we use to design restorations manages to closely match the color and texture of healthy enamel. Because we take care to digitally measure the tooth in need of treatment, we can make sure that your crown is the right shape and size to look attractive and stay secure.

Can I Count On Long-Term Support From My Same-Day Crown?

A dental crown is meant to provide permanent support. Your same-day restoration can provide long-term stability that lets you bite and chew without problems. It is important to note that dental fillings, crowns, and other restorations are not indestructible. However, good oral hygiene habits can protect them, just as your habits can protect you from problems that hurt your dental enamel.
