Why Might I Need a Same-Day Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are caps that are placed when a tooth has been damaged or decayed, and a traditional filling, inlay, or onlay is not enough to repair the damage. You may need a crown if you have:
- Badly decayed teeth
- Broken teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Discolored teeth
The crown will help stabilize and reinforce the strength of the remaining tooth while making sure the tooth is restored to a natural look and feel.
A dental crown is also used to anchor a dental bridge to adjacent teeth, and it acts as the replacement tooth for your dental implant. If you're looking to conceal an unsightly tooth, dental crowns also play a role.
What Is a CEREC Same-Day Tooth Crown in St. Augustine?
If you are like our current patients, the dental office is not your preferred place to spend an afternoon let alone two or three. CEREC dental crowns cut the time you spend in our office by at least half. The traditional placement of a dental crown used to take multiple appointments. Dr. Gordon would need to first prep the tooth and prepare a mold for the crown. He would then send the mold off to a dental lab to have the crown made. You would then need to come back and have the crown placed and shaped.
With CEREC technology, Dr. Gordon takes a digital image (measurements) of your tooth, and the CAD/CAM machine mills the perfectly fitting crown right in the office. There is no waiting period. Once complete, Dr. Gordon will place the crown and send you on your way with a smile. Even better, digital impressions mean no goopy impression pastes to create your dental crown.
