Dental crowns and veneers can give you a stunning smile and improve your oral health. We may recommend this common tooth restoration procedure due to-
- Severe dental trauma
- Dental decay
While this procedure may seem time-consuming and even inconvenient, it doesn’t have to be at Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique and Spa thanks to CEREC (Chair side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics or CEramic REConstruction) same-day dental crowns.
At our dental boutique and spa, our cosmetic dentists are able to safely custom-design porcelain crowns in one visit thanks to the on-site milling and advanced imaging that is offered with our CEREC machine. Along with the quick turnaround time, our same-day dental crowns offer benefits that lab-fabricated crowns simply can’t.
The convenience of same-day dental crowns is one of the greatest advantages. In one simple visit, our cosmetic dentist can create a dental crown for you that looks just as natural and beautiful as a lab-fabricated crown would look. Instead of having to wait weeks for a dental crown for a lab, you will be able to leave the office with your dental crown immediately. The technology advancement offered with our CEREC machine will alleviate the burden of having to schedule multiple visits to our dental boutique and spa.
Simple Tooth Restoration
Many people will try and avoid a dental crown even if they are suffering from a simple dental issue because of the long wait and multiple appointments needed for a lab-fabricated dental crown. This is not a great idea since a simple issue can lead to a much larger problem. However, you may be the perfect candidate for a same-day crown if you have a simple tooth issue such as a-
- Missing filling
- Slightly cracked tooth
If your smile doesn’t require extensive dental work, this may be the perfect option for you!
Preserve More of Your Current Tooth
A same-day dental crown created with our CEREC machine will allow our cosmetic dentist to preserve more of your existing tooth. This is different than the traditional crown method in which a majority of your original tooth will need to be removed. The best part about this is that keeping more of your tooth means less drilling which can eliminate a lot of dental anxiety in our Fort Lauderdale clients.
Avoid a Temporary Crown
With crowns that are created in a lab, your cosmetic dentist will need to place a temporary crown over your existing tooth to protect your smile in between your multiple visits. One way to avoid this annoying situation is with a same-day dental crown. You will be able to resume normal eating activities by choosing a same-day dental crown instead of one created in a lab.
Eliminate the Mess of Dental Impressions
For dental crowns that are made in a lab, your cosmetic dentist will need to use impression trays to capture the alignment and shape of your teeth. These trays are uncomfortable, bulky, and downright messy. On the other hand, if you choose a crown created with our CEREC machine, the digital advancement allows the elimination of these trays while your cosmetic dentist works hard to create your new crown.
Impressive Speed with Same-Day Dental Crowns
Crowns that are created with CEREC machines are convenient since they are designed in one visit. The technology that we have access to with this machine allows us to take a picture of your tooth and send it directly to the machine. From there, the software inside the machine designs a 3D model which our cosmetic dentist will use to create your crown immediately. After this, your crown will be sent to a milling machine which will then build your new tooth. Once this process is completed, we will-
- Fit the crown over your current tooth
- Make any adjustments needed
- Bond the crown to your existing tooth
All of this is completed in one simple visit at Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique and Spa!
High Quality Dental Crowns
Many people worry that same-day dental crowns are not as high quality as lab-fabricated crowns are. However, this is not true! In fact, both options are created from the same durable, strong porcelain materials. By taking care of your new crown properly, you will be able to enjoy the advantages of your same-day crown for just as long as a one created in a lab! Read more about CEREC vs Lab by clicking here.
Enjoy the Look of Real Teeth
Dental crowns that are made with our CEREC machine and in a lab are created to look like natural, permanent teeth. Both options use porcelain that is shaded to match the exact color of your other teeth. However, by choosing same-day crowns, you will have a little more control of the color of your crown since you are seeing it in person which can lead to more natural-looking results.
Are Same-Day Crowns Right for You?
While crowns made with our CEREC machine are a great option, they may not be the right option for you. Our cosmetic dentist will view your individual case and recommend the treatment plan that we feel is best for you. Sometimes, a crown that is made in a lab is a better choice for your current situation. We will look at all options together with you, and make the best choice together.
