The Dental Crown Procedure & Same-Day CEREC Crowns
At Divine Smiles, we make use of the best-available technology that exists for dentists today. Our dentist studied at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI) which provided him with extensive training with dental technology. Using this training and his decades of experience, Dr. Clancy has implemented a same-day crown regimen at our dental office.
Prior to placing your dental crown, your tooth will need to be prepared. Once your tooth has been prepared, we will use advanced dental technology to determine the exact size, shape, and color crown required. We will then mill your crown with our CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) machine. This process takes only minutes and allows us to place a customized crown in a fraction of the time once required.
In the past, dental crowns required at least two visits with several weeks in between so that the porcelain crown could be formed at an outside lab. With our in-house CEREC machine, our dentists can produce stunningly beautiful and functionally strong crowns in a single office visit.
Your dental crown, once placed, will look, feel, and function exactly like your natural tooth. As an added benefit, porcelain is stain resistant, which can help your crown maintain its appearance well into the future.
