As a patient of Dr. Don Mungcal at Downtown Dental in Los Angeles, you will find yourself spending less time in the dental chair. In today’s fast paced world, we stay up-to-date with technology to provide solutions that will have a patient back to living life as quickly as possible. One innovative solution we offer is same-day crowns, using 3D imaging and CEREC (derived from the words CERamic REConstruction) technology.
A dental crown is a restorative option for a tooth that has been cracked, broken, or has a large part of the tooth filled and is no longer strong enough to maintain function without repair. Crowns are also used on both ends of a bridge to anchor the appliance in place with one or multiple replacements in between, called pontics. Sometimes the dentist will detect a condition during a routine examination that indicates a patient’s need for a crown. Other times, a situation may develop suddenly – a tooth breaks while eating, or is damaged in an accident – and may require immediate resolution. Whether a patient is already in the dental chair or experiences a problem that needs prompt attention, a same day dental crown is the best solution. This eliminates the need for repeat visits to complete the procedure in stages, or for a patient to have to be troubled with a temporary repair until the permanent restoration can be created.
Crowns made with CEREC technology are entirely metal-safe, but are very strong and aesthetically beautiful. The CAD software uses images of the patient’s damaged tooth and those adjacent to precisely carve a crown and provide a solution quickly. This type of restoration will look and feel like a natural tooth, and requires no specialized care.
