Same-Day Crowns Shorten Treatment Time

Through the right approach to treatment, you can count on a tooth to remain safe after receiving a custom restoration. What may surprise you is how little time it can take to have that restoration put in place, even when your care calls for the placement of a permanent dental crown. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office uses CEREC technology to produce same-day crowns that are durable and lifelike. Rather than ask you to wait on a permanent appliance to be made by a third party, we can go through the steps of measuring and preparing your tooth for its placement, producing your permanent crown, and fitting into its proper space so that your smile and tooth can be fully restored!

How Long Will It Take To Have Your Tooth Restored?

A dental crown must be carefully designed so that it fits properly over your tooth, contributes positively to your bite function, and avoids creating problems for your neighboring teeth. For other practices, a third party lab will be relied on to provide this restoration, which means you need to wear a temporary crown until your permanent one is created. At our office, we have the technology that we need to produce your permanent dental crown in one visit. In addition to making sure that it is the right shape and size, we can produce it with a ceramic substance that imitates your healthy enamel and benefits your smile!

The Benefits Of CEREC Technology

With CEREC technology, we have the means to capture digital measurements of your tooth, produce a design of your crown, then have it made in our office so that we can place it. All of these steps can be taken in just one visit, which means your tooth has the support it needs without a frustrating delay. While this offers a more convenient kind of restorative work, we should note that this still produces a permanent crown, so you can count on sustained support for your tooth!

Taking Care Of Your Smile With Regular Exams And Cleanings

When you take good care of your teeth between your regular appointments, you can lower your risk for problems that require dental fillings or dental crowns. Sure, it can be a relief to know that these restorations can provide long-term care and lifelike coverage, but your goal should still be to prevent issues that make them necessary, as they are responding to permanent harm. Regular dental visits, along with a smart oral hygiene routine and diet, can keep you safe from the threat of dental decay.
