Same-day crowns are an attractive solution for broken or worn teeth because they are quickly made in the office while you wait. In a single visit, you can leave the office with our permanent restoration in place. But there are other benefits to this solution that you might not know about.
1) Easy Impressions
CEREC same-day crowns technology
If you don’t like having dental impressions taken, you’ll be glad to know that the same-day crowns are crafted with the help CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) software. Instead of gooey impression material and bulky trays that cause many people to gag, the process uses digital impressions that are taken with a handheld digital camera.
2) Custom Fit
The computer software captures the most intricate details of your tooth, and the image is transferred to a milling machine which carves a custom same-day crown. Although minor adjustments may be necessary, CAD/CAM technology is more accurate than manual production.
3) Natural-Looking Restorations
Usually, a full-coverage restoration made has a metal base. Layers of porcelain are added and baked on. It produces results similar to a natural tooth, which is made of layers that give your tooth color and depth. Of course, your natural tooth doesn’t have a metal foundation, which can be difficult to conceal in a dental crown. CAD/CAM restorations are milled in the office. A block of ceramic material is selected and sculpted to match the tooth. There are many varieties of ceramics, as well as different colors and levels of translucency. It makes it easy to select a shade that matches your natural teeth.
4) Function Well
Same-day crowns closely mimic the function of natural teeth. They don’t negatively impact your lifestyle, and with proper care, they can last many years.
