Same-Day CEREC Crowns in Hyannis, MA

Same-Day CEREC Crowns in Hyannis, MA - Convenient and Efficient Crown Restorations

There are many situations in which patients would receive dental crowns as a standalone restoration procedure or as a part of another more intensive process, such as root canal therapy or dental implants. At Hyannis Dental Partners, we bring CEREC technology to your dental procedures. CEREC crowns allow for convenience and have become viable for resolving moderate to severe dental concerns. CEREC design-manufacture systems make creating same-day restorations easier for dental offices while patients wait.

Good Candidates for CEREC Crowns

While not everyone may need CEREC crowns, these restorations are a choice for:

  • Extensive tooth decay – After a tooth weakens in structure due to severe decay, it becomes prone to fracture, breakage, and disintegration. A crown can save the tooth from extraction.
  • Post root canal therapy – Once you have received pulpitis or pulp damage treatment, you can get a crown to cap the tooth and offer additional protection. A crown reinforces the tooth that has weakened from pulp infection or damage.
  • Severe injury – A tooth that suffers fragments from injury can be salvaged by fitting a crown. The crown prevents further breakage.
  • Missing teeth – Those receiving dental implants can have crowns fitted over the implant to replace the lost tooth.
  • Crooked, uneven, or discolored teeth – Our dentists can perform same-day crowns near you to correct gapped, discolored, and crooked teeth.

Our dentist must examine your issue and see if CEREC dentistry can resolve it.

Same-Day Crown Process

If you are fit for same-day dental crowns near you, we begin by prepping the tooth to be crowned so the crown fits properly. This includes shaving the tooth and cleaning it. After that, we scan the prepped tooth using our digital imaging system that makes 3D images of the tooth. The system also creates a blueprint that we use to fabricate the crown.

After the milling unit makes the crown using the blueprint details, our dentists make any adjustments that may be required and then permanently bond it to the tooth. From making the crown to placing it, it takes roughly one hour rather than the two weeks people have to wait for conventional crowns.

What are Same-Day CEREC Crowns?
A dentist designs and mounts CEREC same-day crowns in just one visit. The restorations are created using CEREC technology that Sirona developed. The method utilizes 3D imaging and CAD/CAM technology to allow dentists to make virtual restorations for crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays. With this technology, no temporary restorations or messy impressions are needed. A milling unit helps fabricate the restorations as the patient comfortably waits seated in the dental chair. Patients have their crowns ready and mounted in as little as one hour.
How are Same-Day CEREC Crowns Made?
Our dentists make the 3D image of the tooth to be crowned, and then a blueprint is prepared that works to craft the crown. The fabrication of the crown is done in a milling unit. Once complete, our dentists place it within the damaged tooth. Any adjustments are done, and then bonding is performed.
What are the Benefits of Same-Day CEREC Crowns?
With CEREC crowns, you won't have to get unpleasant impressions such as the use of the putty-like material; no biting to impression materials. Another benefit is that there are no multiple appointments because CEREC allows our dentists to mount the ceramic crown in a single session. A patient also enjoys the long-term stability of the restoration. Further, you won't need to get a bothersome provisional prosthesis since you don't have to wait for any final crowns to be made. Everything is done in that one visit. Conventional crowns require you to wait roughly 2 to 3 weeks for the final piece to be ready. Same-day CEREC crowns eliminate the need for temporary crowns.
How Long Do Same-Day CEREC Crowns Last?
Expect your CEREC same-day crowns to endure for about 10 to 15 years. Nonetheless, they can still survive for longer with proper maintenance. Although the ceramic material used to sculpt same-day crowns is durable and tooth-colored, you need to watch out for things like diet, your habits, and oral hygiene because they can determine the longevity of your restoration. Acids like citrus fruits, soda, and coffee can wear out the crown adhesive. Also, hard foods may crack, chip, or break the crowns. Although ceramic crowns are highly resistant to stains, darkly colored drinks and foods should be consumed in moderation because they can stain the restoration over time. Remember to brush and floss daily.
Does Insurance Cover Same-Day CEREC Crowns?

Like traditional crowns, most dental insurance plans offer coverage benefits for same-day crowns. Each plan is different, but a good approximate coverage percentage associated with dental crowns ranges from 50 to 80 percent. If you want to know the specific benefits, you need to talk to our dentists, who will explain the insurance plan you carry to you. Be cautious if the crown placement is done for cosmetic instead of health purposes; insurance may not cover the treatment.
