Restore Your Smile in One Short Visit
If you have a weak or damaged tooth, Sunshine Smiles Dental Care is here to help. We are pleased to offer a range of restorative dentistry solutions, including same-day dental crowns, to get you back in a healthy, functional smile. We use the latest dental technology and techniques to enhance your comfort during treatment and achieve the best possible outcomes.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that cover the visible portions of teeth above the gum line. Dr. Horng or Dr. Aleman may recommend a crown for the following reasons:
- To protect the integrity of a weak or severely damaged tooth
- To prevent further damage to a cracked or broken tooth
- To repair a tooth with deep decay and not enough structure left to support a filling
- To strengthen a tooth after root canal therapy
- To restore a tooth worn due to constant grinding and clenching (bruxism)
- To support a dental bridge or cover a dental implant
- To improve the color, size, shape, or appearance of a tooth
What Is the Same-Day Dental Crown Process?
We will prepare your tooth by removing some of its structure to accommodate your restoration. Next, we will use our leading-edge CEREC scanner to capture digital impressions of your prepared tooth and surrounding teeth. Computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology helps design virtual restorations with exceptional precision.
The digital model is then sent to our in-office milling machine or 3D printer, which will create your new crown. The last step is bonding your restoration to your prepared tooth.
What Are the Benefits of Same-Day Crowns?
Here is a look at some of the benefits of same-day crowns:
- They Are Convenient: Unlike traditional crowns that usually require two appointments to complete, our dental restorations are created in under two hours, allowing you to skip the temporary crown and restore your smile in one short office visit.
- They Do not Require Messy Impressions: Our digital scanning technology eliminates the need for gooey, uncomfortable impressions, making them ideal for patients with a strong gag reflex.
- They Fit Perfectly: The cutting-edge 3D scanning technology takes reliable impressions of your teeth, and our in-house CEREC system or our 3D printer create dental crowns with an exceptional fit for enhanced comfort and function.
- They Provide Natural-Looking Results: Our CEREC and 3D-printed crowns are aesthetic restorations that match the color, texture, and shape of your natural teeth.
- They Are Durable: Our same-day crowns are made from high-quality materials designed to last many years with proper care and maintenance.
