With CEREC same day crowns, it is now possible to restore a damaged tooth in just one day! Created right in the dentist’s office while you wait, same day crowns deliver a number of benefits, including quickly restoring damaged teeth so that you can resume normal biting and chewing functions without delay. Here at Schneider Family Dentistry in Gaithersburg, MD, Drs. Adam Schneider and Katie Staub are your dentists for same day crowns!
What are Same Day Crowns?
Same day crowns are made at our Gaithersburg dentist’s office in one day using a technology called CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. CEREC utilizes both computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology to first take a digital impression of the teeth and then create custom ceramic crowns from that digital impression. Your new crowns can be bonded in place on the same day they are made so you leave the dentist’s office with your teeth fully restored.
There are many benefits to choosing CEREC same day crowns for restoring damaged teeth, notably including that there is no multi-day waiting time! Prior to CEREC same day crowns, it often took several weeks and multiple dental appointments to get new crowns.
Another benefit of same day crowns is the use of digital imaging, which eliminates the need for creating a physical impression of the teeth. Making a physical mold of the teeth can be messy. The process can also cause discomfort for some patients, especially those with a sensitive gag reflex. The technology utilized by CEREC same day crowns eliminates the messiness and discomfort associated with making physical molds of the teeth.
