Same-Day Dental Crowns in Durham
In the past, making a new dental crown would take multiple visits to our office. But now with revolutionary CEREC technology, getting a dental crown in Durham or other restorations have never been easier!
How does it work? With the aid of computer technology, we make a digital scan of your tooth and design a beautiful crown. This digital information is transferred to our in-office CEREC milling machine. This machine can create a precise restoration and match the color of your teeth in just minutes. The new crown is then placed.
Why Our Patients Love Same-Day Dentistry
Because we are able to fabricate your permanent crown right away in our office, there is no longer any need to wear a temporary crown while you wait for your permanent crown to be created in an off-site lab. Also, digital impressions mean no need for messy impressions.
Digital images are highly precise. Our CAD/CAM system creates a very detailed 3D image of your new restoration for our CEREC machine to use as a blueprint. This assures you of the most comfortable and accurate fit possible.
Same-day dentistry means less time in the dentist’s chair for you. No need for numerous office visits. You’ll have more time to spend with your family and doing the things you love to do – like sharing your beautifully restored smile!
