Getting a crown is a common dental procedure, but it can still be a hassle. We want to make your experience as pleasant and efficient as possible at Oak Mountain Dental, which is why we are proud to offer our patients a same-day crown option! Our cutting-edge technology makes getting a crown faster, easier, and more comfortable for you.
We use CEREC crowns for all of our same-day procedures. These crowns are created using CAD/CAM technology, which stands for Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing. The procedure follows these steps:
Same-day crowns are faster. A traditional crown procedure requires multiple appointments, and patients often have to wear a temporary crown for several weeks before the permanent crown can be placed. Same-day crowns have the same quality and durability as traditional crowns, but they can be created and applied in just one hour! This allows you to avoid multiple injections and inconvenient follow-up visits.
Same-day crowns are more comfortable. CEREC crowns are created using digital scans, so no uncomfortable impressions are necessary. Since the crown is custom-fit when created, bonding it only takes minutes, and patients experience less sensitivity afterward.
Same-day crowns are more aesthetically pleasing. The digital scans used to create CEREC crowns provide highly detailed images. Because the crown is machine-made using these images, it mirrors the shape and appearance of your natural teeth more closely than a traditional crown.
Any tooth that can receive a traditional crown can also receive a same-day crown.
