CEREC® same-day crowns are tooth-like dental caps that fit snugly over the surface of a natural tooth. Implant-supported crowns attach to artificial tooth roots to replace missing or extracted permanent teeth.
Dental crowns are permanent restorations you can benefit from without having to schedule two separate dental appointments. The Bothell Family Dentistry specialists use the latest technology to manufacture same-day crowns right in the office.
CEREC same-day crowns offer numerous benefits for your dental health, including a restoration that’s:
You can save time and money by choosing same-day crowns at Bothell Family Dentistry. The crowns restore teeth that are discolored, cracked, decaying, chipped, broken, jagged, missing, or weak. You might also need a same-day crown after undergoing a root canal.
To determine if you’re a candidate for CEREC same-day crowns, your Bothell Family Dentistry provider discusses your symptoms and medical history with you. They evaluate your teeth and gums and take dental X-rays if needed before tailoring your treatment plan.
During CEREC same-day crown placement, Dr. Ament numbs the treatment area using local anesthetic. She removes any decay and files down the affected tooth to make room for your new crown. She takes a digital impression of the affected tooth, and a CEREC machine creates a permanent dental crown while you wait.
After Dr. Ament bonds the crown to your tooth, she ensures it fits properly and comfortably before you head home.
If you’ve previously received a dental implant, Dr. Ament attaches a new implant-supported crown to the metal post to fill in a gap left by a missing or extracted tooth.
The treated tooth may be tender for a day or two, but you can resume typical daily activities right after receiving a CEREC same-day crown.
Take good care of your new restoration by not chewing on hard objects, brushing your teeth at least twice daily, flossing every day, and attending six-month dental cleanings and exams at Bothell Family Dentistry.
