Customized Crowns in One Single Visit

Dentists and patients alike are well aware of what a drag temporary crowns are. Temporary dental crowns are usually made of acrylic or stainless steel and offer a one-size-fits-all cap to block a tooth from exposure to germs after being cleaned and prepped. Temp crowns are described by patients as cumbersome, uncomfortable, and ill-fitting. The idea of a one-visit crown probably sounds like a fairy tale to many people. Yet it’s actually a reality, and right here in the office of Rochester dentist, Dr. Gilly Calcagno.

Customization of Crowns

As a provider of Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic (CEREC®) Dr. Calcagno and the rest of our dental team are pleased to provide this fast and efficient service to patients. This means we have undergone extra training to understand the computer design tool and operation of the onsite milling machine. Patients often can’t believe their eyes when they see their customized crown being manufactured right next to them. Many have been known to leave our office excited to have saved the time and money that one-visit crowns allow.


Some of the biggest advantages of one-visit crowns include:

  • Use of high quality ceramic materials
  • Minimally invasive
  • Cost effective
  • Surprisingly comfortable
  • Time efficient
  • Allows as much of the natural tooth to be saved as possible
  • Long lasting

Does this sound like more than a few reasons to at least inquire about one visit crowns? For more information on CEREC, or for any of your comprehensive dentistry needs, contact our office today.
