A crown is a dental appliance that covers the entire surface of a tooth, right down to the gum line. Crowns are often recommended for teeth that are too badly decayed to hold a filling, fractured teeth, teeth at high risk for fracture and sometimes for teeth that have undergone a root canal. Nowadays, most crowns are made of a durable ceramic material. Until just recently, getting a new crown entailed two trips to your dentist’s office and a waiting time of 10 to 14 days while the crown was created in a dental lab. But thanks to a new dental technology called CEREC®, you can be fitted with a brand new porcelain crown in just a single trip to the dentist! Dr. Brawner is pleased to bring this new technology to his patients from throughout the Austin, TX, area.
Why You Should Choose Arbor Oaks Dental for Same-Day Crowns
A crown is often an excellent way to save a tooth that might otherwise be lost. Thanks to CEREC® technology, Dr. Brawner can actually create your new ceramic crown right here in our office, while you wait! That means no waiting for 2 weeks to have a new permanent crown made, and no need to wear a temporary crown in the interim. Same-day crowns are every bit as attractive and durable as crowns made in a dental lab, and they’re reasonably priced as well!
The Procedure Involved in Getting a Same-Day Crown
As the first step in preparing you for a new crown, Dr. Brawner will prepare the affected tooth by removing the decay and preparing the surface of the tooth. After that, using CEREC® technology, Dr. Brawner and his staff will create your new crown right here in our office. This new technology simplifies the whole process not only for the patient – who is saved from the hassle of making two trips to the office and wearing a temporary crown while the new one is prepared – but also for Dr. Brawner and his staff, who now have total control with regard to the quality of the crowns they produce.
