Find out the reasons why people are turning to same-day crowns here in Provo, UT.

Dealing with a damaged tooth? Then you’re most likely going to need a dental crown. If you’re not really looking forward to getting a dental crown, rest assured that our Provo, UT, dentists Drs. Gary and Kevin Wiest provide same-day crowns to make getting the restorative dentistry you need even easier. Here are some of the reasons people are smiling again thanks to same-day crowns.

Easy, Mess-free Dental Impressions

When dentists turn to a dental lab to craft traditional crowns, most of the time you’ll need to deal with those standard goopy dental impressions that can be awkward and unpleasant. Luckily, this isn’t the case with same-day crowns. Instead, we use a digital camera to take impressions of your teeth in a matter of minutes with zero mess.

Precise Measurements and Technology

CEREC uses CAD/CAM software and technology to ensure that you get a crown that perfectly fits a tooth. Since digital impressions capture detailed measurements of your tooth this also means getting a restoration that provides a perfect and precise fit each and every time.

Fast Restorative Dentistry in One Trip

Getting the restorative dentistry you need right away is of the utmost importance to anyone dealing with damaged or broken teeth. The good news is that same-day crowns can be designed, made and fitted all in one visit to our office. No need to come back into the office for a separate fitting. We can preserve your smile in a single appointment.

No Temporary Crowns

With traditional crowns, dentists have to turn to an outside dental lab to create your crowns. This can take weeks, so in the interim, a temporary crown is placed to protect the vulnerable and prepared tooth from damage. The good news is that you won’t need temporary crowns when you turn to our Provo, UT, dental team for same-day crowns since we can create your crown right here in our office while you wait.

What Are CEREC Crowns?

CEREC, short for CERamic REConstruction. CEREC is a 3D chairside design and milling technology that allows dental professionals to create dental crowns right in-office! CEREC crowns are made using computer-assisted technology, a sophisticated milling machine, and a solid block of porcelain. The CEREC software develops an accurate map of the teeth and the space they occupy and allows your dental provider to design dental caps that are metal-free, fit precisely, and feel like real teeth.

Benefits of CEREC Crowns

CEREC dental caps are made of porcelain, is a beautiful material that closely resembles the enamel on your teeth. Your new crowns will be created from a durable block of porcelain, leaving you with strong dental restorations that will last for years to come. Furthermore, your dental caps will be designed and milled right in our office within one just one visit.

CEREC dental restorations are a great long-term option because they're durable and generally last for a decade or more. To achieve this goal, however, you will need to maintain a high level of oral hygiene. Keep your smile healthy by cleaning your teeth regularly—especially around the dental caps. Using mouth rinses can also help. To prevent damage to your new CEREC dental caps, avoid chewing hard foods, ice, or hard candy. Remember to visit a dental practitioner regularly for dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings.
