CEREC Same-Day Crowns

dental crowns | tanque verde dentistIf you have ever had a crown placed, you know the drill; visit the dentist to have the tooth prepared and have impressions taken, wait about two weeks while you deal with a temporary crown, and then make a second visit to have the final crown adjusted for fit and placed on the tooth.

Most people accept that this is the only way, but it’s not. With CEREC same-day crowns in Tucson, AZ, you can have the entire procedure completed in one visit to our office.

CEREC Crowns Process

The first few steps for placing CEREC are similar to those for a lab-fabricated crown. But instead of messy impressions, Dr. Michael Allen takes digital images that are used to generate a 3-D model of your teeth that he uses to design your new crown in a software program.

The details are sent to a milling machine in your office where your crown is fabricated from a block of porcelain. The crown is then checked for fit, adjusted, and cemented in your mouth just as a lab-fabricated crown would be.

But there are no multiple visits and no two-week wait. You won’t need to wear a temporary crown, and you will leave our office the same day with a fully customized porcelain crown.

Woman smiling | Tucson AZ DentistYou’re leaving on your dream vacation in a few days and couldn’t be more excited! But you're enjoying movie night with your kids, and suddenly you bite down on a popcorn kernel. When you hear that awful cracking sound, you know you've broken your tooth.

You think you need a dental crown, but there’s not enough time to complete the process before your trip – what do you do?

Ask Us about CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns

Start by calling your Tuscon dentist to learn about CEREC same-day crowns. There are no gimmicks – you come in with a broken tooth, and you leave a few hours later with a beautiful, durable dental crown.

CEREC uses digital imaging technology to comfortably scan your tooth and render a virtual 3-D model of the broken tooth. Dr. Allen designs your crown in the software and sends the specifications to a milling machine in our office. CEREC technology works like a 3-D printer to fabricate your new dental crown from a small block of ceramic material. It is a fascinating process to watch!
