When life does something unexpected, like losing a tooth right before your wedding, you can count on Smile Design Dental to get things back on track. Installing crowns is an effective treatment, but having one specially made can take days or even weeks, time that some patients just don’t have. Thankfully, we offer the very best CEREC crowns in Hallandale Beach because we use state-of-the-art technology to get you your replacement the very same day!
What are Same-Day Dental Crowns?
Traditionally, when a patient needs a crown made it can take several visits. The first examines the area and measures your teeth so the new piece will fit properly. After the procedure is performed, doctors used to need temporary crowns to fill the gap while the permanent fixture is made by technicians at a special on-site lab. As you can imagine, this was quite inconvenient for patients and doctors alike!
At Smile Design Dental, our Hallandale Beach dental office features a CEREC® machine to custom craft your crowns while you wait. After digitizing scans of your mouth and the affected area, the data will be fed into a device that grinds and carves out a fresh, new crown. As soon as it’s finished it’s ready to join the rest of your dentition and you can leave our office with a fresh, winning smile!
Dental Crown Candidates
Usually, crowns are used to replace teeth that have become too damaged to be effective or for repairing spaces where original teeth have been damaged or removed. Such issues include:
- Capping a dental implant
- Restoring and adding structure to the damaged dentition
- Filling in large spaces with bridgework
- Concealing exceedingly discolored or misshapen teeth
- Root canal treatment
Crowns can be made from a variety of materials including metals, porcelain, and composite resin. The crowns produced by CEREC machines are just as durable as their laboratory-constructed counterparts. With proper oral hygiene, crowns can last upwards of fifteen to twenty years!
How Much Do Dental Crowns Cost?
Smile Design Dental takes most major insurances, including PPOs. We also offer membership deals that reduce costs on many basic procedures as well as financing services to help alleviate up-front costs.
