Same-Day Crowns in Springfield
It’s no secret that our modern lives are getting busier and busier. Nobody seems to have enough time anymore. At Best Impressions Family Dentistry in Springfield, MO, we realize this, which is why we have adapted our services to meet your needs. We are proud to offer porcelain crowns that can be done in a single visit using CEREC CAD/CAM. This is one of the latest advances in dental technology. With a CAD/CAM (computer assisted design/computer assisted manufacturing) process, we can now make crowns from start to finish in a single appointment!
With CAD/CAM, a digital imaging is used, and a computer program designs the virtual crown. This data is transferred to a milling unit that creates the perfect crown out of a strong, ceramic (nonmetal), biocompatible material. It’s then cemented or bonded to your tooth. That’s it! With the CAD/CAM procedure, there is no need for a temporary crown or a second trip back to the office for cementation.
Easy, Efficient Procedure
Crowns have many different purposes. For example, a dental crown restores a tooth’s shape, size, and strength. Crowns help to restore and protect a tooth that is worn, decayed, broken, or cracked, especially after a root canal treatment. They also help to improve your smile and function by replacing old fillings that are breaking down or by replacing discolored front teeth. Another example of their versatility is using them to restore dental implants, which can be used to replace missing teeth.
With the use of CEREC, tooth-colored porcelain crowns can be fabricated in the office while you wait. These CAD/CAM-generated crowns are designed to be custom fit and look natural. A video scan of your teeth eliminates the need for dental impressions. By making the crown in the office, the need for a temporary crown and a second cementation visit are eliminated, which saves patients time. The entire process only takes about two hours to complete.
With proper care and good oral hygiene, a crown can last for many years. We strive to get you long-lasting results. During your appointment, our team at Best Impressions Family Dentistry will discuss the details of the procedure and answer any questions you may have.
Durable, Natural-Looking Crowns
One of the greatest advantages of a crown is the aesthetics. The strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials restore your teeth to their natural beauty.
The CAD/CAM is one of the newest procedures. We realize that with any procedure, communication and transparency is of utmost importance. We walk you through the entire procedure, making sure to listen to all your questions and concerns. We go out of our way to get everyone on the same page.
