Frequently Asked Questions About Same Day Dentistry

Question: What is CEREC?

Answer: CEREC is CAD/CAM technology that uses 3D images and a special milling machine to create restorations in a single visit. We use this to fabricate dental crowns in order to restore damaged or decayed teeth.

Question: What does same day dentistry involve?

Answer: First, we will prepare the teeth that will be receiving the crown. We will then use an intraoral camera to gather images of the teeth. Using the pictures, we will create a detailed 3D model of the tooth. Using the model, the machine will craft the restoration from a solid block of ceramic. Once complete, we will check the fit for comfort and accuracy before placing the crown with a powerful bonding agent.

Question: Will my restorations look like real teeth?

Answer: Yes. We use ceramic because the material offers the same translucent appearance as natural tooth enamel. The material is also stain-resistant and can withstand powerful bite forces. Your restoration will blend seamlessly with your smile.

Question: Who qualifies for this procedure?

Answer: We recommend this option for anyone who will benefit from a dental crown. You may have tooth decay, infection, or a misshapen or broken tooth. We can use these crowns to anchor a dental bridge into place or top a dental implant. Finally, this option can address cosmetic issues as well.
