The pace of modern life has made your time is invaluable. At Frisco Family Dentistry, we understand that seeking dental care, especially for dental restorations like dental crowns, can often be time-consuming and disruptive to your busy schedule. This is why we’re proud to offer an innovative solution that respects your time while delivering exceptional results. Under the expert guidance of our Frisco dentist, Dr. David Belman, our same-day dental crown service stands out as a beacon of convenience and quality in dental healthcare.

Whether you’re grappling with a damaged tooth, enduring discomfort, or simply looking to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your smile, the need for prompt and efficient solutions is paramount.

What are Same-Day Crowns? 

Same-day dental crowns are a modern dentistry solution that allows for the complete creation and placement of a dental crown within a single visit to the dentist. This is a significant advancement from traditional methods, which typically require at least two visits.

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology is an advanced dental restoration that enables dentists in Frisco, like Dr. Belman, to design, fabricate, and fit new crowns, veneers, onlays, and inlays in a single dental visit. It’s a significant innovation in the field of dentistry, particularly in the area of restorative treatments.

How CEREC Technology Works

Digital Impressions: The process begins with Dr. Belman taking a digital impression of the patient’s tooth using a special camera. This camera captures a highly accurate 3D image of the tooth and surrounding area, eliminating the need for traditional physical impressions, which can be uncomfortable for patients.

Computer-Aided Design (CAD): The digital image is then transferred to a computer with CEREC software. Dr. Belman uses this software to design the restoration. The software provides high precision and enables the dentist to make detailed adjustments to ensure a perfect fit and a natural look.

Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM): Once the design is finalized, it’s sent to an on-site milling machine. This machine carves the restoration out of a solid block of ceramic or composite material. The color of the block is chosen to match the patient’s existing teeth for a natural appearance.

Speed and Efficiency: The milling process is remarkably quick, typically taking between 10 to 20 minutes per restoration. This efficiency is a stark contrast to traditional methods, which require sending the mold off to a dental lab and waiting days or weeks for the restoration.

Immediate Placement: The crown is then polished and bonded to your tooth, all in the same appointment. This eliminates the need for a temporary crown and a second visit for placement.

Material and Aesthetics: The materials used in CEREC restorations are high-quality ceramics that are durable and aesthetically pleasing. They are biocompatible, metal-free, and closely mimic the natural properties of dental enamel.

Durability and Comfort: These crowns are durable and comfortable, similar to traditional crowns. They are custom-made to fit your mouth and designed to be long-lasting.

Same-day crowns are a convenient option for patients needing a dental crown but who have limited time or prefer to avoid multiple dental visits. This technology streamlines the process without compromising the quality of the end result.

Who Should Consider Same-Day Crowns?

Generally, ideal candidates for this procedure include individuals who:

Need a Dental Crown: This is the primary criterion. Patients who require a crown due to a broken, decayed, or otherwise damaged tooth can benefit from same-day crowns. This includes teeth that have large fillings and need extra support, or after a root canal treatment.

Have Busy Schedules: Individuals who find it challenging to make multiple dental appointments due to a busy lifestyle or work commitments are excellent candidates for same-day crowns. The convenience of completing the procedure in one visit is a significant advantage.

Prefer a Less Invasive Procedure: Some patients may prefer to avoid traditional dental impressions, which can be uncomfortable, especially for those with a sensitive gag reflex. CEREC uses digital imaging, making it a more comfortable and less invasive option.

Seek Quick Results: Patients who want or need immediate results, such as those with upcoming important social or professional engagements, will find same-day crowns appealing.

Desire Aesthetic Restorations: Same-day crowns are made from high-quality ceramic that can be matched to the natural color of your teeth, making them a good choice for patients concerned about the aesthetic appearance of their restorations.

Have Good Oral Health: Ideal candidates should have healthy gums and sufficient tooth structure to support a crown. If there’s significant decay or gum disease, these issues need to be addressed first.

No Severe Bruxism: Patients who suffer from severe teeth grinding (bruxism) may need to discuss with our dentist in Frisco, Dr. Belman, whether a same-day crown is the best option, as the durability of the restoration could be affected.

It’s important for any patient considering same-day crowns to have a detailed consultation with their dentist. The dentist can assess the specific dental needs, consider the patient’s overall oral health, and determine if a same-day crown is the most suitable option.
