Modern technology paired with great advancements in dentistry have made possible same-day crowns through the help of CEREC technology. At Padden Dental, we offer this solution for corrective dental work. Now, patients with broken, weak, damaged, or fractured teeth can have the dental problem diagnosed and have a new dental crown crafted and applied in a single visit to our Vancouver, Washington dental office.
Are you wondering if CEREC same-day crowns are right for you? Here are answers to the most common questions about crowns and CEREC dentistry we receive at Padden Dental.
Question #1: What are Crowns?
Answer #1: Crowns are specially crafted caps that are designed to fit over top the portion of a tooth that is visible above the gum line. Crowns restore the shape and function of a tooth, while also preserving the rest of the tooth structure from any further decay or damage.
Question #2: Who Needs a Dental Crown?
Answer #2:Crowns are used to restore teeth that have been damaged. When a tooth is affected by a chip, tooth decay, cavity, or fracture, common symptoms may include:
- tooth sensitivity
- pain when biting or chewing
Question #3: Does a Dental Crown Provide a Natural Appearance?
Answer #3: Because every individual crown is customized to conform to the contours and color of your other teeth, the restoration will blend seamlessly with your smile.
Question #4: What are CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
Answer #4: The acronym CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics or CEramic REConstruction. At Padden Dental, we can use CEREC technology to create and fit a customized crown in a single office visit. Before modern dental technology, such as CEREC crowns, the process would require at least a couple of visits to a dentist office and a waiting period in which a patient would wear a temporary crown. Now, you can enjoy the convenience of having a durable and attractive crown placed in just one day to not interfere with your busy schedule.
Question #5: What Kind of Benefits do CEREC Crowns Provide?
Answer #5: The most obvious benefit of CEREC same day crowns is the speed and convenience of having this procedure done in one day. Using this treatment option also eliminates the need for an ill-fitting temporary crown.
Question #6: How Long Can a CEREC Same Day Crown Last?
Answer #6: With proper care and normal caution exercised in regards to the new dental crown, it’s normal for a CEREC crown to last well over ten years or more.
