Danville Family Dentist

Shailaja Singh ,DDS

Dentist located in Danville, CA

Traditional crowns can sometimes take up to multiple weeks, at Danville Family Dentist in Tracy, California, Dr. Singh can give you a straighter and brighter smile with veneers or crowns in a single visit using CEREC® CAD/CAM.  If you’d like to learn how Dr. Shailaja Singh can improve the appearance of your teeth, call the office or book an appointment online today.

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.

What is One Day CREC?

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.

Why CEREC is Better Than Traditional Crowns?

One day crowns are better than traditional ones in many ways:

  • One day crown process can be completed in a single visit, and you are free from the hassle of visiting the dentist multiple times.
  • It looks and feels like a real tooth.
  • It can last longer than traditional crowns.
  • One day crowns are safer as they do not involve temporary crowning which may dislodge causing injury.
  • CEREC also prevents decay which can be caused by dislodged temporary crowns used in traditional crowning.

How Much CEREC Costs?

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.
