Dental crowns are restorations made from tooth-colored ceramic used for various dental restorative and cosmetic purposes.
Conventional dental crowns take a few days to 2 weeks to be fabricated and placed on the teeth. However, as the name suggests, same-day crowns can be fabricated much faster, making the process more convenient and effective.
At iSmile Dental Group in Columbus, Ohio, we’ve helped many patients recover their smiles using same-day crowns. In this blog, we’re getting into how same-day crowns are made and their main advantages.
Same-day crowns are fabricated using CEREC technology (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics). CEREC is a highly advanced method of making oral restorations from dental-grade ceramic using CAD/CAM technology.
Before making them, Dr. Peng conducts a thorough diagnosis of your oral condition and determines your candidacy for same-day crowns. Then, she digitally scans your teeth using a hand-held scanning device and inputs the extracted data into the CAD/CAM machine.
The computerized device mills out the crown in just a few minutes from a small block of dental-grade ceramic. Once Dr. Peng places the crown on the tooth and checks for a suitable fit, she will bond it permanently using dental adhesives.
Here are some of the main advantages of same-day crowns that make them highly desired:
