Same Day Crowns
When you have a broken, damaged, or infected tooth that requires a porcelain crown, you want to rely on a dentist’s office that has the technology to create your restoration immediately. At Smiles by the Sea in Hampton, NH, our office is home to the advanced CEREC system, which allows us to craft same-day crowns and restore your smile completely in the same visit.
What Is the CEREC System?
The CEREC system is a computer assisted design (CAD) and computer-assisted milling (CAM) system that produces sophisticated, customized dental restorations while you wait. This on-site technology is an investment that your dental office has made so it’s possible for patients to have whole smiles again quickly.
Benefits of a CEREC Same-Day Crown
The relief of knowing that your Hampton dental office provides same-day crowns is the first benefit of CEREC restorations. Other perks include:
- Immediate repair: Off-site dental labs can take days and sometimes weeks to create a restoration. CEREC gives you your smile back in one day.
- Perfect fit: When specifications are sent to a dental lab to create a crown, the restorations usually come back accurately. There is no substitute, though, for the kind of accuracy your dentist delivers in both the fit and appearance of on-site customized crowns.
- Convenient: When you have a broken tooth or damaged crown, it’s a big deal. You want the problem fixed as soon as possible, especially so the issue doesn’t interfere with your professional or social life. CEREC eliminates the need for multiple dental visits, saving you time and stress.
- Natural-looking: You can be guaranteed a dental restoration that looks natural and blends in with the rest of your teeth in size, shape, and color.
Dental Problems a Same-Day Crown Can Fix
No one has ever experienced a dental problem at a convenient time, but it’s even worse when the repair you need to fix your tooth will take weeks to complete. CEREC same-day crowns eliminate this problem and can be used to repair multiple issues right away, including:
- Broken crown: Even the strongest crowns are at the mercy of age and become loose. They can also suffer damage because of biting down wrong on a food or from teeth grinding.
- Fractured tooth: When a tooth is broken, chipped, or damaged in some way, it is at risk of deteriorating quickly. Not tending to the problem creates space for food particles and bacteria to enter the tooth and cause decay or infection.
- Decayed tooth: Some tooth decay is so large that a tooth-colored filling will not work and a crown is needed as a more robust solution.
- Infected tooth: If you have a deep infection in your tooth, root canal therapy is necessary. Once the canals are meticulously cleaned out and sealed, the whole tooth needs to be covered with a crown for protection.
- Weak tooth: A deteriorating tooth or simply a weak tooth that is prone to breaking can be concealed and restored underneath a same-day crown.
- Unsightly tooth: If you have finally had it with an unsightly tooth that draws attention to itself because it is stained, oddly shaped, or flawed in some way, a customized crown conceals the problem immediately.
Cost Factors for Same Day Crowns
The cost for your same-day crown will be affected by many factors, the most notable of which is the convenience of getting an on-site, same-day solution. Overall costs for a CEREC restoration are cost-specific to you and your unique oral health needs, but will also include:
- The size of the restoration
- Tooth location
- Material used to make the crown
- Dentist’s experience
- Location of the dental office
