Due to advancements in dental technology, it is now possible to get dental crowns in a single day and a single visit. Same day crown is a lifesaver for busy individuals as it allows you to walk into the dentist’s room and come out with your smile restored. The process is quick and patient friendly.
Same or one day crown is made possible through ceramic restoration. It is a system that generates ceramic fillings in a single visit. Both CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) are used in making these one-day crowns. The whole process is completed within a few hours. First, the intraoral camera takes the 3D image of the tooth. The dentist then designs this image with precise measurements with indentations, pits, and ridges. After finalizing the design, the crown is created by milling the tooth from ceramic material. It is then glued to the tooth.
One day crowns are better than traditional ones in many ways:
Usually, one-day crowns do not cost more than traditional crowns. The material and machinery used in making one-day crowns are more expensive, but the cost is cut down due to a single visit and no dental lab cost. So, the cost of CEREC is similar to a traditional crown. On average it costs around $700 to $900, but it depends on the location and your dentist.
