CEREC same-day crowns are a great way to have a permanent restoration placed without needing to come in for multiple appointments. Same-day crowns are just as durable as lab-made restorations, but they eliminate the need for a second visit. Crowns are essential for covering teeth that have become damaged or compromised. Your crown will last for many years before replacement is necessary.

Why would Same-Day CEREC Crowns be needed?

The reason you might need a crown is because a tooth has cracked, fractured or broken. You might even have a tooth that has a large, old filling in it that needs to be replaced. Patients who have recently undergone a root canal will benefit from a crown because the root canaled tooth is more susceptible to breaking. Crowns are used to cover a compromised tooth to restore it to its original shape and size.

Who is a candidate for Same-Day CEREC Crowns?

Most patients are good candidates for same-day CEREC crowns. We will examine your teeth to determine if a crown is necessary and if it is, it is recommended that it be placed as soon as possible. This prevents further damage to the tooth, which could lead to the need for an extraction. If you have recently had a root canal performed, it is important that you have a crown placed before the tooth breaks or cracks.
