You might have intense pain and sensitivity if you have a broken tooth. While a dental crown can resolve your tooth discomfort, you may be concerned about the length of time involved in getting a traditional crown. Luckily, thanks to CEREC, getting a dental crown has become much easier for patients. With this technology, Innovative Dental Care can provide same-day dental crowns in our Omaha, Nebraska office.
Like traditional crowns, getting a same-day crown begins with tooth preparation. Under anesthesia, your dentist files down and reshapes your tooth to create space for a crown. Then we use an intraoral camera to scan your teeth. The digital images are fed into a computer-aided design (CAD) unit to design your crown. Since the 3D design is displayed on a chairside screen, you can give feedback on the design of your crown.
After Dr. Gutschow approves the design of your crown, we don’t send the models to an off-site dental lab to manufacture your crown. We feed the images into an in-house milling machine which carves out your crown from a ceramic block in as little as 15 minutes! Once we mill your crown, we inspect it to ensure it looks natural and fits perfectly. If all is well, we use dental cement to bond it permanently to your teeth.
With CEREC crowns, there is no need for temps since you get out of our dental office with the real thing. This means you can damage your tooth in the morning and have a restored, functional smile by evening.
CEREC dental crowns are the real definition of convenience — you walk out with a durable, permanent crown in one visit. No need for multiple appointments, which can be a turn-off for persons with time constraints.
Besides convenience, the other benefits of same-day crowns include:
