Faster, Easier, and More Comfortable Dentistry with CEREC Same-day Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are preferable if you have severely damaged or decayed teeth. Rather than fill the tooth multiple times and weaken its integrity, a dental crown wraps over the entire tooth to restore its health and appearance. 

In many dental offices, getting a dental crown requires several dental appointments. But who has time for multiple dental visits in today’s demanding and bustling times? We understand you may not have the luxury of time when you want to restore your smile with dental crowns. Eagle Family Dental in Arlington, Washington, offers CEREC same-day dental crowns to repair your smile in one appointment. Single-appointment dental crowns mean no provisional crowns, no messy impressions, and no need for multiple visits.

What are Same-day dental crowns?

Also known as CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic) crowns, same-day dental crowns deliver same-day dental repairs using advanced design and manufacturing technologies. CEREC crowns use computer-aided design (CAD) technology to design your restoration to your tooth’s exact specifications. An in-house milling machine enables the fabrication of your crown right here in our office. 

The process for CEREC same-day dental crowns

CEREC dental crowns are similar to traditional crowns but differ in the time taken. Traditional crowns require several appointments spanning several weeks to complete. CEREC crowns are completed in one day using the steps below.

  • Tooth preparation: After numbing your mouth, we remove any of the decayed portions and reshape your tooth to create space for your crown(s). 
  • Digital impressions: Using an intraoral scanner, we’ll take precise, 3D images of your tooth to design your crown. Unlike traditional crowns, digital impressions are more comfortable and accurate than manual impressions. 
  • Designing and creating your crown: Your digital scans are fed into the CAD machine that creates your customized crown. Once satisfied with the crown design, we send it to the milling machine that carves the crown out of a ceramic block. Then you will have about 30 mins to relax, possibly read a book or magazine or check your phone. Before you know it, your crown will be ready for placement.
  • Bonding your crown: Because of the accuracy of the CEREC technology, we’ll only make a few adjustments to your restoration. If you and your dentist are happy with the results, we use dental cement to bond the crown permanently to your teeth.

The process of traditional crowns can be long and unpleasant. With CEREC crowns, you can dodge the inconvenience of multiple appointments, messy molds, and temporary restorations. You’ll step into our office with a damaged tooth and walk out with a brand-new smile in less than two hours!
