Same-day crowns, also known as CEREC crowns or one-visit crowns, are created using modern dental technology and placed in just one appointment. Unlike traditional crowns that require multiple visits and temporary restorations, same-day crowns offer convenience and efficiency.
At General and Cosmetic Dentistry of Tampa, we use digital impressions, computer-aided design, and in-house milling or 3D printing technology to streamline the entire process and make it more efficient and convenient for patients.
Same-day crowns save you time by eliminating the need for multiple dental visits and temporary restorations. This is especially advantageous for individuals with busy schedules or those who prefer to minimize their time in the dental chair. With good oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits, your same-day crown can provide reliable and lasting results.
The process starts with a digital impression of the affected tooth taken using advanced imaging technology, such as intraoral scanners. This digital impression eliminates the need for messy traditional impression materials, making the experience more comfortable for patients. The digital impression is then used to create a 3D virtual model of the tooth. Using computer-aided design (CAD) software, our Dentist in Tampa, FL can customize the design of the crown, considering factors such as shape, size, color, and fit to achieve optimal aesthetics and functionality.
Once the crown design is finalized, it is sent to an in-office milling machine or a 3D printer. Using high-quality ceramic materials, the machine precisely fabricates the crown using the digital design.
After the milling or 3D printing process is finalized, the same-day crown is ready for placement. The dentist will remove any decayed or damaged tooth structure, ensuring a proper foundation for the crown. The crown is then bonded to the tooth using dental adhesives, providing a secure and long-lasting restoration.
Same-day crowns eliminate the need for multiple dental visits and the inconvenience of wearing temporary restorations, which saves you time. With same-day crowns, you can restore a damaged tooth in just one appointment, making it an ideal option for those with busy schedules.
Same-day crowns are made from high-quality ceramic materials that closely resemble the natural appearance of teeth. The CAD/CAM technology used in the process allows for precise customization, ensuring a crown that matches the color, shape, and contour of your existing teeth.
With same-day crowns, you don't have to wait for weeks and wear temporary restorations while waiting for the permanent crown to be fabricated in a dental lab. The immediate placement of the final crown provides immediate restoration, allowing you to resume normal oral function and enjoy a complete smile right away.
Same-day crowns are a modern and efficient alternative to traditional crowns and immediately restore your smile and oral functions.
