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.
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.
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.
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.
Same-day crowns can treat the same issues as dental crowns. They are often used to treat cavities, repair damaged teeth after an oral injury, cover up a tooth after root canal therapy, and even sometimes for cosmetic purposes.
If you have a toothache, you have a chipped or broken tooth, you suspect you have a cavity, or you have an old and worn-out dental crown, a same-day crown from Bauer Dental Co. may be right for you. Give us a call for a consultation, and get the care you need.
You can treat your same-day crown just like a natural tooth. To take care of it, just brush and floss normally, and see Dr. Bauer every six months for a teeth cleaning and oral exam. That’s it!
