What are the advantages of same-day Dental Crowns?

At Premier Dentist Philadelphia in Center City, Same Day Dental Crowns offer numerous advantages. This innovative approach significantly reduces waiting time, allowing for complete crown procedures in just one visit. It’s an efficient, time-saving solution that eliminates the need for temporary crowns and multiple appointments.

How Dental crowns work

What is the procedure like?

The CEREC Same Day Dental Crown procedure with Philadelphia dentist Dr. Eidelson is thorough and patient-focused, involving several key stages:


Preparation and Impression

Initially, the dentist prepares the tooth, removing any decay and reshaping it to accommodate the crown. This is followed by taking a digital impression of the tooth using an intraoral camera. This step is crucial as it captures a detailed 3D image of the tooth and surrounding area, eliminating the need for traditional, more uncomfortable dental impressions.


Design and Milling of the Crown

Next, the digital image is used to design the crown with the aid of specialized CEREC software. This software allows for the creation of a customized crown that precisely fits over the prepared tooth. The design is then sent to an in-office milling machine, which carves the crown from a ceramic block matched to the color of the patient’s teeth. This milling process is usually completed in less than an hour, highlighting the efficiency of the CEREC system.


Placement and Final Adjustments

The final step involves the dentist checking the fit of the milled crown, making any necessary adjustments to ensure it aligns perfectly with the bite and adjacent teeth. The crown is then polished and bonded to the prepared tooth, securing it in place and ensuring it blends seamlessly with the natural teeth. This entire process, from preparation to placement, is typically completed in a single visit, offering a convenient and time-saving solution for patients in need of dental crowns.

Same Day Crowns Vs. Traditional Crowns Process

Traditional dental crown procedures typically require two visits to the dental office in Philadelphia: one for tooth impression and another for crown placement, with a 2-3 week gap and a temporary crown in between. Same day dental crowns streamline this process, eliminating the need for a temporary crown and allowing patients to receive their final restoration in just one visit, usually within a few hours at our Center City location.
