Same-Day Dental Crowns
Same-Day Dental Crowns
At South Weber Dental in Ogden, UT, Dr. Eric Russell and our skilled team understand that dental crowns are a versatile and effective solution for restoring damaged or weakened teeth. Traditionally, getting a dental crown involved multiple visits and weeks of waiting. However, with our advanced CEREC technology, we offer same-day dental crowns, providing a convenient and efficient way to achieve a beautiful and functional smile.
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns, also known as caps, are custom-made restorations that encase a damaged or weakened tooth, providing strength, protection, and improved aesthetics. A dental crown completely covers the visible portion of the tooth above the gum line, restoring its shape, size, and functionality. We often recommend crowns in the following situations:
- Cracked or fractured teeth
- Severely decayed teeth
- Teeth weakened by large fillings
- Teeth with cosmetic imperfections
- Teeth that have undergone root canal treatment
Advanced CEREC Technology
At South Weber Dental, we are proud to offer same-day dental crowns using our state-of-the-art CEREC technology. CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) allows us to design, create, and place a high-quality dental crown in just a single visit. With CEREC, you no longer have to endure the inconvenience of temporary crowns or multiple dental appointments.
Benefits of Same-Day Dental Crowns:
- Time Efficiency: CEREC technology eliminates the need for multiple visits, allowing you to receive your permanent crown in just one appointment. This saves you valuable time and minimizes disruptions to your daily life.
- Enhanced Convenience: With same-day dental crowns, you don’t have to wear temporary crowns or schedule additional visits for crown placement. Everything is completed in a single visit, streamlining the process and making it more convenient for you.
- Precise Customization: CEREC technology uses digital imaging and computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create highly accurate and customized dental crowns. The crowns are precisely matched to the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, resulting in a seamless and natural-looking smile.
- Optimal Fit and Function: Same-day crowns are designed to fit your tooth perfectly, providing excellent functionality and bite alignment. With precise measurements and digital modeling, your crown will be tailored to your specific needs, ensuring a comfortable and long-lasting result.
- High-Quality Materials: CEREC crowns are made from durable and aesthetically pleasing materials, such as ceramic or porcelain. These materials mimic the natural appearance of teeth, providing a lifelike and beautiful smile.
The Same-Day Dental Crown Process
Getting a same-day dental crown with CEREC technology is a simple and efficient process:
- Evaluation and Preparation: Dr. Eric Russell will examine your tooth, discuss your concerns and goals, and determine if a dental crown is an appropriate treatment. If so, we will remove any decay or damaged portions to prepare the tooth.
- Digital Impressions: Instead of traditional physical impressions, a digital scan will be taken of your tooth using a handheld scanner. This scan captures the precise dimensions and details needed to create your custom crown.
- Crown Design: Using advanced CAD software, Dr. Russell will digitally design your crown, considering factors such as shape, color, and functionality. This ensures a precise and personalized result.
- In-House Milling: The design specifications are sent to our in-house milling machine, which crafts your dental crown from a block of high-quality ceramic or porcelain. This process takes just a few minutes.
- Crown Placement: Dr. Russell will carefully place and adjust the crown to ensure a proper fit and bite alignment once the crown is ready. We will make any necessary refinements on the spot.
- Final Polishing: After confirming the fit and appearance, the crown will be polished to shine naturally and seamlessly blend with your surrounding teeth.
