Fresno Same Day Crowns

What Are Same-Day Dental Crowns?

As the name implies, same-day crowns are a type of crown that can be built and placed in just one day. While traditional crowns require at least 2 appointments over a period of several weeks, CEREC technology allows Dr. Bauer to offer same-day crowns in a single, 1-2 hour appointment. Contact us now to schedule your appointment, and get the crown you need your Fresno dentist.

The Same-Day Dental Crown Treatment Process

Tooth Preparation & Scanning

To begin the process, your mouth will be cleaned and numbed. Then, Dr. Bauer will trim your tooth to remove damaged enamel and create a stable platform for your crown. Next, he will scan your tooth with a CEREC Primescan intraoral scanner. This scan is uploaded into a special computer, where he can build your crown.

Crafting & Milling Your Crown

Your dentist in Fresno will use a computer to adjust your scan and build a crown that will fit perfectly over your tooth. Once his design is complete, he will upload it into a CEREC milling unit. Then, he will place a block of tooth-colored porcelain in the unit. The CEREC milling unit will automatically trim this block into a perfectly-shaped crown.

Crown Fit Check & Placement

Once your crown has been built, Dr. Bauer will remove it from the CEREC machine, and check the fit to make sure it’s perfect. Once everything looks good, he will use dental cement to permanently attach the crown to your tooth. Then, you’ll be sent home. The entire process usually takes between 1-2 hours.

The Benefits Of Same-Day Dental Crowns

Same-Day Treatment In One Appointment

The biggest benefit of same-day crowns is that you don’t have to come back for multiple appointments. Whether you need a new or you’re replacing an old, worn-out crown, Dr. Bauer can take care of you in just one convenient appointment at Bauer Dental Co.

No Temporary Crowns Necessary

In the traditional crown process, you usually have to wear an uncomfortable temporary crown for 1-2 weeks until your lab-made crown arrives at our office. Then, your temporary crown is removed and replaced with a permanent crown. This is not necessary for CEREC crowns, since your crown will be made and placed in just one appointment.

Fully Digital Process

The process of scanning your mouth is fully digital, and does not require the use of trays and dental putty, which many patients find uncomfortable. Digital scanning is faster than traditional impressions, too, which helps streamline your appointment at our office.
