What Are Same-Day Crowns?

What your dentist in Provo wants you to know
If you have damaged teeth, or you have a smile full of large, old metal fillings, you may be thinking about getting dental crowns. Dental crowns are an excellent choice to make your smile stronger and more beautiful. Now, thanks to a revolutionary process known as CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) you can have your new dental crown on the same day! Dr. Gary Wiest at Provo Dental in Provo, UT, wants to share the benefits of same-day crowns and what they can do for you.
In years past, if you wanted a dental crown, you would have to schedule at least 2 appointments, one for tooth preparation, and the other for a crown cementation. In between, you would have to wait weeks for your new crown to come back from the dental laboratory. During this time, you would have to wear an uncomfortable, unsightly temporary crown until your new crown was finished.
The process has changed dramatically, thanks to CAD/CAM same-day crown technology. Now you can have your tooth prepared and a new crown created all in the same appointment, right in the office, while you wait. These are just a few of the benefits you will enjoy with same day crowns:
- You will save time, because same day crowns only require one appointment.
- Your crown will fit perfectly the first time, thanks to CAD/CAM exact measuring technology.
- Your crown will look completely natural because the crown material is a high-grade dental ceramic that reflects light just like your natural teeth.
CAD/CAM same-day crown technology uses computer-aided measurement along with precise 3D imaging to create a crown that fits your smile perfectly with no adjustments and no remakes. Your new crown will be a unique addition to your unique smile.
You deserve to discover the benefits of same-day crowns for yourself. Now you don’t have to wait to achieve a smile you can be proud of. Enhance your smile in just one appointment with same day crowns.
