Same day crowns
If you suffer from a tooth that is badly decayed, damaged, or missing, you understand the pain, discomfort, and embarrassment that comes along with it. Your Rochester dentists at White Spruce Dental recommend seeking treatment as soon as possible, before the problem worsens. With the help of our advanced same day technology, Dr. Kenneth Nozik and Dr. John Tumminelli can create and place dental crowns in a single appointment!
Do I need a crown?
Generally, dental crowns are used to restore teeth that require more than a simple filling, inlay or onlay. A crown can also replace an entire missing tooth with the help of a dental implant. You may require a crown if you suffer from a tooth that is:
- Badly decayed
How does it work?
Our high-tech CEREC milling machine allows us to fabricate and place crowns in a single appointment. In the not-so-distant past, a crown would require two appointments. The first would require an anesthetic injection, preparation of the tooth, a messy impression, and placement of a temporary restoration. Your next appointment after a few weeks would require another injection, removal of the temporary, and placement of the final crown.
Fortunately, CEREC technology eliminates the need for multiple appointments, multiple injections, messy impressions, and temporary restorations. Digital imaging technology takes precise digital “impressions” and converts them into a digital model, which is then fabricated on-site, and placed by your Rochester dentist the very same day.
If you’re ready to restore your smile in form and function, but don’t have the time or patience for multiple appointments, we would love to talk with you about CEREC same day crowns.
If you have any questions about same day crowns, or would like to schedule a consultation with your Rochester dentist, Dr. Nozik or Dr. Tumminelli at White Spruce Dental, please contact our office today at 585.424.5120.
