Same Day Crowns technology offers advanced treatment options with less waiting time for a restoration.


Utilizing CEREC® technology, your dental restoration(s) may be able to be placed on the same day or next day instead of the usual wait of one to two weeks or more, depending on the treatments being performed. Using a digital intraoral scanner, we can create a digital impression of your teeth and gums without using traditional trays.

Advanced computer 3D technology can create a design of the restoration and  then analyze the interaction of the new restoration with your other teeth to ensure fit and comfort. Your new restoration can then be milled out of a solid piece of tooth colored composite material, providing strength that may surpass that of many restoration produced in a dental lab.

Advancements in materials and technology have provided many options for great restorations that can both look great, provide superior strength compared to other restorations, and reduce the need for multiple visits to the office.



 

CAD/CAM is an acronym that stands for computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing.


CAD/CAM technology is used to help the dental team fabricate precise shapes and sizes for dental restorations including inlays, onlays, crowns and bridges. This technology provides patients with durable, esthetic, well-fitted single and multiple tooth restorations in a more efficient manner. The first step in using CAD/CAM technology is tooth preparation. Next, a digital impression is taken that sends the prepared tooth’s exact dimensions into a computer. Afterwards, the computer software creates a virtual restoration replacement part for the missing areas of the tooth. The software then sends the virtual restoration data to the milling machine, where the replacement part is carved out of a solid block of ceramic or composite resin. The restoration is adjusted in the patient’s mouth and cemented or bonded in place.
