Placing Ceramic Crowns In One Visit

June 18, 2024

When you have a tooth in need of treatment, such as decayed or infected teeth or ones with dental damage, then you need a restoration. Our team can craft a custom and lifelike crown in only one visit. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI, dentist talks about our same-day CEREC crowns and how they look so natural!

The Situations That Call for Repair

There could be a number of issues that call for the placement of a dental crown. For example, we could treat cavities too severe for a filling, or repair cracked, chipped, or broken teeth too. Placement could aid in improving overall bite balance and also chewing function. We could use them to address overly large or misshapen teeth, and even aid in the replacement of missing teeth by supporting a dental bridge or restoring a single tooth dental implant. Unlike traditional options that require two to three visits, we can use the CEREC system to create and place them in only one appointment!

The CEREC System

With the CEREC system, we start by preparing the tooth. We will numb it so we can gently remove outer structure to make room for the new restoration. The next step is to take detailed digital images and measurements of the tooth with a tiny camera at the end of a thin wand. We then combine these images to create a 3D impression, one we use in a lab setting to design and craft your finished crown. The restoration is made from ceramic, a strong material that can absorb daily bite forces with ease and also be color matched to blend with your smile.

Placing Your Lifelike Crowns

Once we have completed your new crown, we will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments before we attach it with a powerful bonding agent. With a holistic approach, we provide metal-free restoration that looks natural and is safe for all ages. Placemat only takes one visit, so you don’t have to miss school or work for more than a day. Now that summer is here, your kids can receive treatment without missing classes, so their smiles will be ready for the fall.

If you have any questions about how we design and craft a custom ceramic option in one visit, then contact our team to learn more about the CEREC process, and enjoy shining and healthy smiles this summer!
