Advanced Digital Crowns for Same Day Service
Porcelain crowns usually take two or three visits to prepare, but advances in 3D printing technology have allowed for same-day digital crowns in some cases. 3D dental printing is one of the most exciting dental innovations in recent years, and our practice has made the investment in the CEREC™ system. This computer-assisted system takes the exact measurements of the tooth needed for reconstruction, processes it, and then outputs a custom-fit crown for installation.
This entire process can be completed over the course of one office visit, and provides several advantages. The optical impression creates an exact replica, enabling installation in place without the traditional grinding to fit. The exact fit also facilitates easy bonding within one office visit, so you won't need to wear a temporary crown. This also reduces the chance of the crown falling out, and creates durable metal-free digital crowns last can last more than 10 years.
