How We Place Crowns In One Visit

February 27, 2024

When you have a tooth that needs repair or treatment for issues like chips, cracks, or tooth decay, then we could help with a full restoration. Instead of requiring two to three visits to place a crown, your Lake Orion, MI, dentist can secure a new and custom restoration in one visit with the CEREC system.

The Reasons a Restoration Is Required

A dental crown is a full restoration that covers the entirety of your tooth’s visible portion, which enables us to address an array of restorative issues and offer cosmetic results at the same time. For example, we could recommend one when a tooth is cracked, chipped, or broken. We can lengthen teeth worn down by teeth grinding, and also address misshapen teeth too. Placement could improve bite balance and chewing function, and aid in replacing missing teeth by supporting a bridge or completing a single tooth dental implant too! Instead of requiring two to three visits to complete, we can now create and place one in a single visit with the CEREC system.

The CEREC System

The CEREC system employs CAD/CAM technology to design and craft a crown in one visit. We then attach it in the same sitting! To begin, we will numb the tooth being treated and gently remove structure to make room for the restoration. Our team will take detailed digital images of the teeth from multiple angles, and use the images and measurements to create a 3D impression of the tooth. We then upload this information into the onsite milling machine, creating a crown from a solid block of ceramic. The material is durable and strong, handling daily bite forces with ease. We can also shade it to blend with your smile so your results look natural!

What Happens Next?

Once we create your dental crown, our team will check the fit and if necessary, make some final adjustments. We then attach the restoration with a powerful bonding agent, so you can leave our office with a restored smile and lifelike results. If you have any issues that need attention and want to enjoy a better smile in only one visit, then please reach out to our team today. We want to help you and your family enjoy optimal oral health, and smiles you can’t wait to show off to the world!
