Same-Day Porcelain Crowns
When you come to Cashion Dental, you can expect to see some of the latest and advanced dental technology. We want you to have the best experience possible, which is why we offer same-day porcelain crowns instead of the traditional lab-created ones.
What are Same-Day Porcelain Crowns?
Dental crowns are protective caps that are placed on top of your natural teeth or dental implants. They are typically used if you have a cracked tooth or large cavity, as well as after a root canal procedure. Unlike in the past, you won’t have to wait multiple days to have your new crown placed. We can do it for you right here in the office in just one simple visit!
What is the Same-Day Porcelain Crowns Process?
When you come in for a same-day dental crown procedure, we will use a CEREC system to scan the tooth receiving the crown, as well as the entire mouth. This process allows us to make your custom-made crown and replaces the need for an uncomfortable and sticky impression.
We will send the completed scan over to a 3D printer to create a model, then a mixture of the model and the scans will be used to create a crown with a milling machine. The crown should fit over your tooth comfortably. Any minor adjustments will be made by Dr. Cashion before it is securely bonded into place.
You can expect the entire process to take roughly 1.5 to 2 hours, but this can vary based on how many crowns you need as well as any potential issues that may arise.
What are the Benefits of Same-Day Porcelain Crowns?
- The process typically takes only one visit
- They look and feel natural
- Protects your tooth from further decay
