When a tooth becomes damaged, the last thing you want to do is wait for your smile to be repaired. In many cases, dental offices have no other choice than to complete a lengthy and sometimes messy restoration process with traditional dental crowns. Fortunately, Dr. Crowley has invested in advanced technology to improve our patient’s experiences by offering same-day dental crowns in Edmond, OK! Read on to learn more about this treatment option or reach out to us to schedule your initial consultation so that you can get back to enjoying a comfortable and healthy smile again.

What Are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?

CEREC means Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (dentistry). CAD stands for Computer-Aided Design, meaning that we use computers to create, alter, and examine the design of your dental crowns. CAM refers to the software that controls the advanced machines that execute the creation of your dental work.

Together, this advanced technology in Edmond and our expert team can speed up your dental restoration process by weeks! Advanced technology also creates more comfortable experiences for our patients by eliminating the whole impression phase of dental crowns.  Now, you can visit a dental office and have your dental health issue addressed quickly, comfortably, and effectively.

The Process of Getting a CEREC Same-Day Dental Crown

Of course, similar to traditional dental crowns, our team will first prepare your affected tooth by removing a tiny amount of enamel and reshaping it to make room for the restoration. Our team will provide you with a local anesthetic so that you remain comfortable and pain-free throughout this procedure. We’ll then take digital impressions of your smile that will generate a 3D model of your mouth, making it unnecessary to use uncomfortable and messy putty.

The computer will then transfer the model to our in-office milling device, which will then begin fabricating your dental crown. This process should take about an hour as the machine creates your custom restoration out of a block of dental porcelain. Due to the accurate impression system, this will leave very little room for error when constructing the exact shape, size, and color you need to restore your tooth.

Once the dental crown is completed, you’ll have it fitted so that we can make any minor adjustments, if needed. If your bite is correct and you’re satisfied with the results, we’ll cement the restoration atop your tooth and you’ll be free to show off your brand-new smile!

The Benefits of CEREC Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns

By using CEREC technology, you can be sure to undergo a quick, accurate, and efficient procedure for restoring compromised teeth in a single appointment. Some of the various advantages of this treatment compared to traditional crowns include:

  • Digital impressions: Instead of having to use putty, which is uncomfortable and often gag-inducing, CEREC can develop fast and precise impressions of your smile while helping patients experience a stress-free visit.
  • Quick timeframe: Traditional dental crowns often require multiple appointments to complete the process. With CEREC crowns, you can expect to repair your decayed or broken tooth in just an hour or two instead of a couple of weeks.
  • Better oral health: CEREC same-day crowns are typically metal-free, meaning you’ll have a significantly lower risk of potential oral health complications regarding contact with metal, including increased sensitivity to temperatures and mercury exposure.
  • Cost-efficient treatment: In many cases, CEREC dental crowns can cost about the same as traditional crowns. However, since our dental team handles the entire process in one visit, you might expect the price of treatment to be further reduced.
