CEREC® Same-Day Crowns: Get The Job Done In One Visit!

Can your dentist give you a dental crown in just one visit?

“Looks like you’re going to need a crown.”

What goes through your mind when your dentist tells you this bad news? 

Maybe that you were barely able to find time to make your regular check-up visit. How will you find time for the multiple visits that crowns usually take? 

But before you panic, your Seattle dentist has good news.

Using the latest dental technology of CEREC®, Dr. Kollia, and Dr. Fu can create and place your beautiful crown in just one visit.

So let’s elaborate.

Why Might You Need A Dental Crown?

Your dentist always has good reasons for recommending a dental crown procedure. These include:

  • Strengthening a tooth with a large filling or multiple fillings
  • Improving the appearance of misshapen teeth
  • Restoring the structural strength of a cracked, broken, or worn tooth
  • Fortifying a tooth from fracturing after a root canal

And at that point, you have to choose between traditional crowns and CEREC® same-day crowns.

Traditional Crowns

Getting crowns takes time and is an intensive, multi-visit procedure that can be costly.

Not every patient can manage the multiple appointments or the financial outlay for this treatment option.

Along with the time and expense, messy, often ill-fitting bite trays and less secure temporaries are also deterrents.

The good news is that CEREC® same-day crowns provide another option! 

CEREC® Same-Day Technology

So, what’s the difference between CEREC® same-day dentistry and its traditional competition?

Let’s see:

  1. The CEREC® wand takes digital impressions in about two minutes, and you won’t feel a thing.
  2. Using advanced CAD/CAM technology, we can customize a new crown that fits like a glove and looks natural.
  3. With CEREC® same-day dentistry, we’re making and placing your crown in under two hours.
  4. CEREC® allows our dentists to offer this restorative treatment in one day, compared to several visits.

And here’s an even more in-depth look into how the CEREC® technology works and some of its benefits in our educational infographic:
