FAQs about same-day crowns

What is a same-day crown? As a crown patient at Cohen Modern Dentistry in Southgate, MI, you'll receive a complete evaluation by your dentist. If you have sufficient healthy tooth structure, you can receive a dental crown to cover, protect, and restore its original shape and strength. Unlike old-fashioned fabrication processes, same-day crowns take just about two hours, thanks to CEREC technology.

What does CEREC mean? CEREC stands for Chairside Economic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. A specialized system of computerized design and manufacturing, this process creates restorations such as crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, and onlays in just one visit. That means no sticky oral impressions, temporary crowns, or long waits for a permanent crown to return from the dental lab. Your crown is designed, made, and installed entirely at our Southgate office.

What is entailed during the CEREC process? After an oral evaluation, your dentist removes any damaged enamel, takes digital impressions, and inputs instructions into the CEREC unit. Following these steps, your crown is crafted in about 15 minutes.

Are same-day crowns just as good as conventional crowns? Yes, the quality is excellent, as the CEREC unit uses a single block of premium ceramic to craft them. With normal use, these restorations last 10 to 15 years or longer if you brush and floss them carefully and receive in-office care at Cohen Modern Dentistry.
