Same Day Crowns

At Espire Dental, we use a cutting-edge CEREC machine to provide same-day crowns. Unlike traditional crown procedures, this system generates high-quality porcelain crowns in just one visit, enabling us to provide patients with natural-looking crowns quickly and effectively.

Same-day crowns can be created and cemented in place in a single visit. This minimizes the number of injections required and eliminates the need for temporary crowns. The CEREC machine produces crowns that are aesthetically pleasing and exceptionally strong and durable, meaning patients won’t have to give them a second thought for years.

What is the Cerec Machine?

The revolutionary CEREC system designs and generates porcelain crowns in just one visit. Generally, crown procedures take two visits or more to complete and require the patient to wear a temporary crown that may be uncomfortable. The CEREC machine provides patients with a faster, more esthetic result, less injections and drilling, and no temporary crowns or goopy impressions, all while conserving more of the natural structure of your teeth.

How do same day crowns with the Cerec machine work?

Your Espire dentist begin the procedure by preparing the tooth in the same manner they would a traditional crown. Next, they will take a digital image of the tooth using a special camera, instead of taking an impression of the tooth (like a traditional crown procedure). The digital image is then brought up on one of the flat screen televisions right next to the dental chair so they are able to use it to guide the design of the crown. Once your Espire dentist perfects the newly designed tooth, the data is sent to the CEREC machine which then creates the tooth exactly to their specifications. The process of creating the crown can take as little as six minutes! The final step is adhering the crown to finish the procedure, ensuring that the crown matches the surrounding teeth.

What are the benefits of the same day crowns with the Cerec machine?

The biggest benefit of a same day crown procedure is time and convenience. Instead of requiring the patient to come back for a second visit, the entire procedure can be completed in one scheduled visit. Because a crown procedure will be completed the same day, only one set of injections is necessary, lending itself to greater patient comfort. Same day crown procedures eliminate the need for a temporary crown. Temporary crowns often fall off and cause problems, which may add extra trips to the dentist office. The CEREC machine gives your Espire dentist more control of how the patients final crown will look and fit. Another benefit of the CEREC machine is that the crown material is stronger, which means the crown lasts longer. With proper oral care, a CEREC crown may have to be replaced less often.
