Dental crowns are one of many restorations designed and used by dentists to restore patients’ smiles. However, many dental offices require several appointments and a few weeks to completely repair a tooth using this type of restoration. Fortunately, the team at Triad Dentistry in Greensboro, North Carolina, understands that your time is important and is pleased to offer same-day dental crowns for patients in and around the area.
These are porcelain restorations made right in our office using our advanced CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic) technology. CEREC is a cutting-edge system that allows our dental team to create custom dental crowns in just one appointment. You walk in with a damaged tooth and leave with a fully restored smile in less than an hour.
Getting a same-day dental crown starts with a consultation appointment with one of our team members at Triad Dentistry. This is when our dentists will determine if a dental crown is the proper restoration for your unique situation.
Once a patient decides to have a crown placed, preparations begin. The tooth is first numbed and then reshaped to accommodate the crown. Next, a digitized tooth impression is taken using our advanced technology, eliminating the need for messy traditional impressions.
After the impression is taken, it is uploaded into our computer software, where we can design a custom dental crown that will fit perfectly on the prepared tooth. The crown is then fabricated from a block of porcelain while patients wait. Once complete, the crown is bonded in place, and patients can go about their day with minimal interruption!
If you need to restore one or more teeth in the smile and are curious if you are a good candidate for CEREC crowns, call the team at Triad Dentistry today at (336) 383-1482 to request an initial consultation appointment.
