Enjoy the Convenience and Ease of Restoring Damaged Teeth with One-Day Crown Services
A dental crown is an excellent solution for a badly damaged or decayed tooth requiring additional support and strength. A dental crown is a dual-purpose restoration that restores your tooth’s structural integrity while enhancing its aesthetics.
Unfortunately, getting a traditional crown involves several appointments spanning several weeks. But guess what? At Brentwood Dental Care, Brentwood, California, we can restore your tooth with a dental cap in a single visit! Drs. Don Mungcal and Stephen Weisberg have invested in CEREC technology to ensure the entire dental crown treatment is completed in one appointment.
Why you may need a dental crown
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap worn over a damaged or aesthetically unappealing tooth. Although dental crowns are small, they have numerous uses in dental care. Your doctor may recommend a dental crown to:
- Strengthen a decayed or damaged tooth
- Reinforce a tooth after a root canal
- Cap off a dental implant
- Secure a dental bridge
- Cosmetically improve a severely discolored or misshapen tooth
- Replace a large, worn-out filling
While dental crowns are real heavyweights in dentistry, many patients are turned off by the lengthy treatment. But not anymore! Now, you can get a dental crown in one convenient visit. We know what you are thinking: What’s the catch? There must be something you compromise with a single-visit crown. In truth, a single-day dental crown looks and functions exactly like traditional crowns but faster!
The “magic” behind same-day dental crowns
Single-day dental crowns are created through an in-office appointment using sophisticated technology. The process begins after grinding down and reshaping the tooth enamel. After tooth preparation, we’ll digitally scan your mouth to create a customized impression of your tooth. Then, using computer-assisted design (CAD) technology, we design your crown to fit the exact specifications of your tooth.
After we approve the crown design, we send the image to an in-house milling machine that carves the crown from a ceramic block within 15-20 minutes. Once your crown is ready, we only make a few adjustments to it because it’s made with utmost precision.
The final step is to use dental cement to bond the crown to your tooth. Thanks to CEREC technology, a tooth can go from decayed, damaged, or missing to fully restored and functional in less than two hours.
