Same-Day Dental Crowns
At AccuCare Dental Centers, we know that you have a busy schedule and we understand that your time is valuable. No one wants to spend a moment longer than they need to at the dentist’s office.
That’s why Dr. Willcox is happy to offer high-quality same-day crowns to the Scottsdale community. You no longer must wear a temporary crown for two weeks while you wait for your custom crown to come back from the lab – we can accomplish everything in just one visit.
When Do You Need Dental Crowns?
Crowns are versatile restorations for protecting and improving the appearance of your teeth in many situations. The dentist may suggest a crown 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:
- It fits over your natural tooth to support its structure to avoid further damage.
- The crown holds the space so that the adjacent/opposing teeth do not collapse into space.
- The natural tooth look helps you feel comfortable and confident
High-Quality Same-Day Crowns by Experienced Professionals in Scottsdale
Dr. Willcox CEREC Technology to create same-day custom fitted crowns using several high-quality 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.
