Crowns are restorative dental appliances that are used to improve the functionality of the teeth. A tooth or a set of teeth that may be damaged due to decay can be restored by using crowns. Crowns will cover the entire teeth making it look natural and function like normal teeth.
Crowns are generally suggested for patients whose teeth would have been damaged, discolored, severely decayed, or who have just undergone a root canal procedure.
A crown is a cap-like structure that fully covers the damaged tooth. Crowns can generally be of three different forms: all-metal, ceramic-on-metal, and all-ceramic. It takes a week’s time to get a customized crown designed in the lab.
The procedure that involves when you get a crown is the following:
In this method, it would almost take a month to get a crown ready for you. The long wait to get your crowns ready can now be resolved by getting same day crowns.
Same day crowns are the crowns that can be created by using a new technology called CEREC of Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing. It can be created as and when you wait in the office room.
This technology will allow the dentist to design and construct restorations like crowns, bridges, inlays/outlays in a matter of few hours.
The result of this technology for a same-day crown is a ceramic crown that is produced within an hour and glued into place where it is required.
The process to create a same-day crown using CEREC technology is quite different and faster.
