If you need a crown, you may expect a process that will require between two and three visits. But what if your Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist could provide a custom solution in only one visit? With the CAD/CAM CEREC system, our team can create and place a same-day crown in only one visit. In today’s blog, we’re looking at what you should expect from this process!
The Same-Day Process
We begin by administering a local anesthetic to ensure you feel comfortable during the procedure. Our team removes structure from the tooth receiving a restoration, and then take detailed images using advanced digital technology. The images we gather will be used to create a detailed digital impression, no need to bit down on molds filled with sticky materials! Once we design the crown based on these impressions, we upload the information into the onsite milling machine, which then crafts the finished product from ceramic. The ceramic mimics the translucent appearance of tooth enamel and can be shaded to blend with your smile. We then check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and place it with a powerful bonding agent. The entire process only takes a single visit to complete, from start-to-finish!
When Do We Need Crowns?
Since the crown covers the entire visible portion of your tooth, we use it to repair cracks, chips, and worn-down tooth structure. We also address misshapen teeth and mask permanent discoloration. Placement also aids in tooth replacement, anchoring dental bridges in place and also restoring a single tooth dental implant.
Keeping Your Smile Strong
To ensure the restoration lasts for many years to come, you should take steps to prevent the onset of issues like tooth decay, infection, gingivitis, and gum disease, all of which could threaten the stability of your newly restored tooth, as well as the rest of your smile. Make time to brush your teeth for two minutes when you wake up and again before bed. You should also attend routine checkup and cleanings visits as well, so we can monitor your smile and address any developing issues in the earliest stages. If you have any questions about restoring your smile, or if you would like to schedule a consultation, then contact our team today.
