High-Quality Same Day Crowns: Are They Possible?

Written By AccuCare Dental Centers, PC on July 5, 2019

Woman about to receive a same day crownHundreds of millions of people in the United States have had dental crowns delivered to protect and improve the appearance of their teeth for many situations. Crowns are the recommended treatment of choice for:

  • Broken or cracked teeth

  • Weak teeth

  • Fillings that require removing a large portion of a tooth’s structure

  • Attaching bridges

  • Teeth with root canal treatment

  • Covering discolored or misshapen teeth for aesthetic purposes

  • Covering dental implants

A permanent crown serves three purposes:

  1. It fits over your natural tooth to support its structure to avoid further damage.

  2. The crown holds the space so that the adjacent/opposing teeth do not collapse into the space.

  3. The natural tooth look helps you feel comfortable and confident.

Until recently, however, patients dreaded, or even put off having crowns placed on their teeth because the lengthy process that involved several dental visits and wearing a temporary crown.

AccuCare Dental Centers' same day crowns allow patients to reap the benefits of dental crowns without sacrificing time for multiple dental office visits while, at the same time, providing equivalent or even superior quality compared to traditional crowns.

How Do High-Quality Same Day Crowns Work?

Dr. Willcox uses CEREC Technology to create same day custom fitted crowns using several high-quality restorative materials, including the industry leading IPS e.max.

At other offices, the dentist will take impressions of the teeth, provide the patient with a two-week temporary crown, send the impressions to the dental lab, and fit the patient for their custom dental crown two weeks later. Unfortunately, sometimes temporary crowns come off between appointments necessitating a third visit. Additionally, the extra procedure(s) often require additional anesthesia and can lead to more post-op sensitivity.

We do things differently at AccuCare Dental Centers.

With cutting-edge CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacturing) we can design, create and deliver your dental crowns in just one visit.

After the tooth is prepared, a digital impression is taken with a camera (that’s right, no more trays of impression material setting up in your mouth for 5 minutes!) and then the staff designs your crown on the computer. The design is sent to the 3D milling unit and about 45 minutes later your crown is delivered.

All same-day crowns from AccuCare Dental Centers are completely customized and built to last.
