Crowns in a Day
Professional solution, efficient procedure
For patients who desire a natural-looking, tooth-colored solution to their dental needs, our Portland dental office can provide this solution. Patients will not have any fitting issues or have to wait several weeks for a dental crown. Instead, we will fit, place and secure it in one visit. Our procedure is opposed to making two or three visits for a traditional crown procedure.
CEREC one-day crowns provide restoration of decayed or damaged teeth in the form of a long-lasting ceramic crown with the same strength and durability as the traditional method. The difference is that patients will not have to wait for a mold of their teeth to be sent off to a lab. We can create the crown right in our office.
The CEREC milling system is a form of technology that uses Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) that allows us to take a photo of your tooth and transfer it to a design system that will create the custom restoration all in one machine while the patient sits contently in our office chair. We can accomplish all of this in one visit, allowing the patient more time for family, friends, or work. This way, patients can save themselves the hassle of visiting the dentist multiple times. The CEREC one-day crown system is an unbeatable technology with the ability to create a restoration for a damaged tooth while the patient waits and we prepare the tooth. We will then place the crown on the specified tooth and bond it there for long-lasting protection against further tooth damage.
