CEREC Same-Day Crowns
If you’re in need of a new dental crown, you don’t have to wait weeks or even days to get one any longer. At Black Hills Area Dental, we offer CEREC same-day dental crowns, so you can get the treatment you need quickly and effectively in a single visit.
What are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?
Same-day dental crowns are a type of porcelain dental restoration that can be completed in a single visit to our office. Unlike traditional dental crowns, which require two or more appointments, same-day crowns can be finished in as little as two hours.
The procedure is performed using CAD/CAM technology, which allows Dr. Samuelson to create a custom-fitted crown while you wait. Same-day crowns are made from durable materials that resemble natural tooth structures, and they can be used to restore broken, damaged, or misshapen teeth. If you are considering a dental crown, ask Dr. Samuelson if same-day crowns are an option for you.
What is the Difference Between CEREC and Traditional Crowns?
The traditional way of getting a dental crown involves taking an impression of the tooth, which is then sent to a dental lab where the crown is made. This process can take weeks, during which time you have to wear a temporary crown.
With same-day CEREC crowns, we use digital technology to take an accurate 3D image of your tooth. This image is then used to create your permanent crown, which you can watch Dr. Samuleson create while you wait!
CEREC crowns do not have toxic metals as a base and are made entirely of hard porcelain. Combined with 3D technology, it provides a more comfortable fit and is easier to color match with your teeth, giving it a more natural look and feel.
Our goal is to offer our patients exceptional care with the convenience of cutting-edge technology, and we look forward to treating your smile.
