Are You a Good Candidate for CEREC Same-Day Crowns?

A damaged tooth is a big problem – functionally and appearance-wise – and it’s natural to want it to go away as soon as possible. While most dental repairs do take a few visits to the dentist to correct what’s going on – that’s changed. The CEREC system delivers same-day crowns to qualified patients who need a dental restoration as quickly as possible. They just might work for you.

What Are Same-Day Crowns?

CEREC same-day crowns are exactly what their name says – a crown repair that you get from your dentist the same day you go there with a dental problem. CEREC is an advanced, in-house technology that involves computer-aided design and milling and makes it possible for your Chandler dental team to create customized crowns and place them on the same day.

While the norm is to send crown designs to off-site dental labs to be created, a process that can take a week or longer, this isn’t necessary in an office with CEREC which ensures that you get your smile back on the same day.

Problems Treated with Same-Day Crowns

You can’t predict a dental emergency or problem, but you can have a dentist at your fingertips who is able to manage the complication right away. You can’t tell when that day is going to arrive when you just can’t stand your unsightly tooth anymore, but all the following dental problems can usually be fixed with a same-day crown:

  • Infected tooth: Need root canal therapy? This requires the removal of tooth enamel – and then a covering-up of the treated tooth. A same-day crown gets the job done so you don’t have to wait for a solution and return later to complete your smile.
  • Tooth decay: If a cavity is very large it sometimes cannot be repaired with a tooth-colored filling. A crown is a more robust repair.
  • Stained tooth: Stains and discoloration ruin smiles and some teeth can’t be whitened, but that doesn’t mean they can’t get whiter with the help of a customized crown.

Benefits of CEREC Same-Day Crowns

Besides the amazing benefit of saving time by getting a permanent dental repair on the very day you have a dental problem, CEREC same-day crowns offer the following perks:

  • Customization: There is no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to CEREC. Each restoration is carefully customized to be the proper fit and accurate appearance. If something isn’t right, it can be tweaked on the spot.
  • Natural appearance: People can spot a fake tooth a mile away, but a CEREC same-day crown is designed to look just like your natural tooth in size, shape, and color. It blends right in.
  • Minimally invasive: The fitting of traditional crowns requires an impression of the teeth – a messy and gag-triggering process. With CEREC, dentists use an intraoral scanner to capture 3D digital images of your teeth, which is far more comfortable and accurate.
  • Weak tooth: A tooth that continues to break or is plagued by weak enamel can be toughened up with a customized crown.
