Same Day Crowns Explained
Technology in dentistry has improved the way we deliver our dental care to our patients. The ability to mill crowns in our office with the Cerec mill and cement them the same day is extraordinary! It gives our patients not just the gift of time but the peace of mind knowing that they leave with a natural-looking permanent crown in one visit. No more dealing with temporary crowns that can fall out and waste patient's time by having to go back to the dentist to get it cemented back on. The longer a tooth is without a permanent crown, the more opportunity bacteria has to infect the tooth and compromise its longevity. Milled crowns are made with lithium disilicate ceramic, which is known for its strength and ability to mimic natural teeth. The crowns are then bonded, rather than cemented, to strengthen the underlying tooth.
