Same Day Crowns

Getting a dental crown used to require several visits to the dental office, messy dental impressions, and getting a temporary crown before your permanent one was ready to be placed. Today, however, CEREC dental crown technology has simplified the process of getting a dental crown. Now, you can get a permanent dental crown in a single office visit. 

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a dental prosthetic (usually made from tooth-coloured porcelain or porcelain fused to metal) that caps the entire visible portion of a tooth.

Dental crowns are used to seal, strengthen, protect, and preserve natural teeth that have been compromised as a result of injury, decay, or disease. They are also often used to anchor dental bridges. Crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes to cover up a stubborn stain or correct the size or shape of an irregular tooth.  

What Is a Same-Day CEREC Crown?

A same-day CEREC crown is similar to a traditional dental crown but does not include the lengthy manufacturing period involved with a traditional dental crown. 

Same-day CEREC technology uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) paired with a digital camera, advanced dental prosthetic design software, and an in-office milling machine to create a high-quality ceramic dental crown on the spot during a patient's dental appointment. 

The Benefits of Same-Day CEREC Crowns

1. Fast and Efficient

With same-day CEREC crowns, there's no need for our office to fit you with a plastic, temporary crown and schedule you for a separate dental appointment at a later date to place your permanent crown once it has been manufactured. Instead, CEREC technology allows our team to design, manufacture, and place your permanent crown all in one appointment. 

2. Comfortable and Mess-Free

We use all digital imaging technology to design and create same-day CEREC crowns. This means you don't have to endure the uncomfortable, sticky mess of traditional dental impressions.  

3. Precision Design and Milling

We pair detailed digital imaging with advanced software and CAD/CAM technology to efficiently design a 3D model of your new CEREC crown. Our in-office milling machine then uses this digital information and a high-speed diamond bur to mill your dental crown to our exact specifications. Within minutes of designing your crown, it is ready for placement.

4. Perfect Fit and Seamless Look

Our precision equipment achieves a perfectly comfortable fit, and our team ensures the crown is manufactured in a matching, natural colour that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth.   

The Treatment Process: How Do Same-Day CEREC Crowns Work?

If our dentist recommends treatment with a same-day CEREC crown, you can expect a quick, easy, and painless process. 

We first prepare the tooth for treatment. This involves removing a small portion of the tooth's exterior to make room for a dental crown to fit comfortably. We always work with your comfort in mind and use local anesthetics to ensure you experience no pain or discomfort during treatment. 

Once the treatment area has been prepared, we take a detailed set of digital images using our intraoral camera and digital impressions technology. With these images, we can assess the targeted treatment area where the crown will be placed and use this information to design a 3-dimensional model of your new dental crown. We then use this model to mill a precise permanent restoration in minutes. 

We then ensure that your new dental crown perfectly matches your natural teeth before using dental cement to permanently place it and restore the compromised tooth. 

This entire process takes place in just one visit to our dental office.
