What Are Same-Day Crowns?
Crowns are caps that go over damaged or broken teeth. This covering helps protect the tooth from further damage, infection, and eliminates often painful toothaches. In the past, crowns have traditionally taken two or three visits to fit. This usually involves a poor-fitting, unsightly temporary crown that simply does not look or feel good.
However, CEREC allows us at Gilbert Dental Group to create and fit crowns all in the same day! You can be in and out of our office in just one visit, looking and feeling great and being proud of your smile again.
Better Technology Than Ever Before
Not too long ago, patients had to wait weeks to come back for their second crown appointment. This was usually done while impressions were sent to a lab, and a perfect-fitting crown was meticulously created and sent back to our office. But with a CEREC crown restoration machine, procedures that used to take weeks can be accomplished in just one visit.
Our CEREC system uses CAD/CAM technology to create precision-generated crowns in just one visit. The technology takes accurate pictures of your damaged tooth and allows our team to design restorations quicker than ever. We don’t have to wait weeks to send your impressions out to a lab, because CEREC gives us the tools to design, print, and bond the restoration to your tooth. Depending on your condition, most patients can be in and out of the chair in just two hours.
Advantages of CEREC Same-Day Crowns
There are several reasons why we recommend same-day crowns to patients:

- Immediately restore the function of your tooth: be able to eat, drink and enjoy a pain-free mouth again.
- Save money by eliminating unnecessary appointments.
- Prevent further tooth decay.
- Prevent your teeth from experiencing further injuries.
