Dental restorations are lifesavers when it comes to fixing your broken smile. Be it dentures, bridges or crowns, dental prosthetics are capable of replacing missing teeth to restore your fabulous smile to the way it was.
Deciding the dental restoration that'd best suit your case would start off with a detailed oral examination. Based on observations your dentist would finalize the type of dental restoration. Dental crowns are the most common type of prosthetic that can easily replace missing teeth. They are cap-shaped dental restorations made of ceramic or porcelain material. Crowns are usually suggested for missing teeth, after a root canal, and after a dental filling. Conventionally, getting crowns to require at least two visits to the dentist's office, but with advances in dentistry, it is now possible to get your custom-crowns with absolutely no delay. Same day crowns are now possible with CEREC technology.
What are same day crowns?
Same day crowns are ceramic restorations designed and crafted by using CEREC technology. They can be made ready for the patient in just one single visit. Same day crowns can help replace missing teeth, improve the function and appearance of teeth, and reduce the number of visits to the dentist's office.
What is the process involved in getting same day crowns?
The conventional method of getting dental crowns would take days or even weeks to prepare. With CEREC, it is possible to have your crown crafted and molded in a matter of hours.
The process involves three simple steps:
- Using the CEREC device to scan the teeth. This would allow taking digital impressions of the teeth.
- Designing your restoration with CAD/CAM technology.
- Manufacturing the customized restoration using computer-aided milling and 3D printing.
