Traditional crowns require two separate appointments and the procedure can take days or weeks to complete. With the emergence of CEREC® technology, patients can now walk into our office and leave with their new custom dental crown on the same day. Brian K. Tavoian, DDS, PC, has practiced dentistry for more than 25 years. Brian offers same-day crowns at our Cedar City, UT, office. The same-day option allows patients to return to work and life faster than if they had selected traditional crowns.
The Benefits of Same-day Crowns
Same-day dentistry has revolutionized many aspects of modern dental care. CEREC technology allows patients who undergo same-day dental crown treatment to enjoy these benefits:
- Faster procedure: Unlike traditional crowns, you can enjoy a restored smile after just one visit.
- Natural-looking results: Brian works with porcelain since the material looks and feels like natural enamel and is more durable than alternative materials. Your custom prosthetic will match your smile.
- Precise technology: CEREC technology allows for more accurate measurements of your custom prosthetic before it is constructed. This technology involves an intraoral scanner that creates precise images of teeth. Also, patients can enjoy the benefits of foregoing messy traditional impressions, which rely on clay molds.
- Treatment savings: Fewer visits to the dentist can mean lower costs for your procedure.
- No more temporary crowns: Temporary crowns can feel awkward, hindering chewing and speech function. You can avoid this uncomfortable middle step by opting for same-day crowns.
