Get a New Crown or Restoration in Just One 90-Minute Appointment!
Our Steele Creek dentist office is equipped with a CEREC Primescan machine, the most advanced digital scanner on today’s healthcare market. This incredible machine is able to process more than 1 million 3D points per second, and use the data to create a perfect dental restoration. That means that you can walk in our office needing a crown, and walk out wearing one—it’s that simple!
Thanks to CEREC, we no longer need to ask you to bite into that “gooey” material, then apply a temporary crown while you wait two weeks for the final result. Instead, we simply dry your teeth, run the scan, and mill the final product right in our office. We are thrilled to be able to provide the convenience of same-day crowns to our Steele Creek patients!
The Benefits of Same-Day Crowns
Same-day crowns and CEREC technology offer the following benefits:
- Fast, efficient dental treatments
- Lab-quality crowns, veneers, fillings, inlays, and onlays
- A minimized number of oral injections
- A quick and comfortable (i.e. goo-less) digital-impression process
- Same-day color corrections
- A process that happens right in front of you, from start to finish
- Increased accuracy, resulting in a perfect, personalized fit
- Decreased risk of temporary crown dislodging (more below)
Why Same-Day Crowns Are Safer for Your Teeth
From an oral health perspective, the best advantage of same-day crowns is that they eliminate the need for temporary crowns, which often become dislodged when patients bite or chew. This is undesirable for several reasons. Firstly, when the sensitive, fragile tooth dentin is exposed with no crown or enamel to protect it, the patient is at great risk for causing permanent (and painful) damage. Patients can also accidentally swallow the temporary crown, necessitating a new one to be made. Since crowns–even lost ones–are often not covered by insurance, this might mean handing over a couple thousand dollars for a 5-second mistake!
Finally, when a temporary crown becomes dislodged while the patient is chewing, the patient can bite down on it with the healthy teeth, cracking them and causing even more trauma. You can see why our same-day crown services make our dentists much happier!
