Same-day dental crowns are a revolutionary advancement in restorative dentistry. Unlike traditional crowns that require multiple visits and temporary restorations, same-day crowns are designed, fabricated and placed in a single dental appointment, saving patients time and offering immediate results.
Digital Impressions and Design
The process begins with our dentists and team using advanced digital technology to take precise 3D images of our patient’s teeth. These digital impressions are then used to design the crown using computer-aided design (CAD) software. We can customize the crown’s shape, size and color to match your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend with your smile.
In-House Milling and Fabrication
Once the crown design is finalized, the data is sent to an in-house milling machine, which precisely carves the crown from a high-quality ceramic block. This milling process takes only a matter of minutes, eliminating the need for a dental laboratory and the waiting time associated with traditional crown fabrication.
After the crown is milled, it is carefully examined and adjusted by Dr. Stephen M. Taylor, Dr. Jim O. Taylor or Dr. William Reed to ensure a perfect fit. The crown is then permanently bonded to the prepared tooth using dental cement, offering immediate restoration and functionality. Patients can leave the dental office with their new crown in place, eliminating the need for temporary crowns and multiple appointments.
Same-day dental crowns save patients time by eliminating the need for multiple visits, as the entire process is completed in a single appointment. The use of digital technology ensures precise and accurate crown design that results in a natural-looking restoration. Additionally, the convenience of same-day crowns means minimal disruption to daily activities and immediate relief from discomfort or aesthetic concerns.
