Same Day Crowns Q & A

What is CAD/CAM technology?

CAD/CAM is an acronym that stands for computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing. With this technology, the dental team at Arizona Advanced Dental can fabricate precise dental restorations, including crowns, onlays, and bridges. The team uses a high-tech camera, specialized software, and a revolutionary milling machine to create your crown.

This technology provides you with durable, attractive, and well-fitting tooth restorations in one visit rather than the multiple visits required for conventional crowns.

What’s involved in getting a same-day crown?

Same-day crown procedures begin with thorough cleaning and preparation of the tooth that is to receive the crown. The technicians then take a digital image of the tooth, and the exact dimensions are sent to a special computer. The software creates a virtual restoration replacement for the missing areas of the tooth (or the entire tooth).

The computer sends the information to the milling machine that carves your replacement tooth out of ceramic or zirconia. As soon as the crown is ready, the doctors at Arizona Advanced Dental in Mesa, Arizona, cement it into place. They fit it to match your bite, so the crown feels comfortable and natural.

What are the benefits of same-day crowns?

Same-day crowns are of the highest quality and contain no metal. They offer benefits like:

  • Immediate placement – you don’t have to wait days or weeks for your permanent restoration to arrive and be applied
  • No messy impressions that involve foam, which can initiate a gag reflex
  • No need for a temporary crown that is unstable and often poorly fitting

Same-day crowns are carefully crafted to match your smile. You won’t know the difference between your crown and your regular teeth.

Who is a candidate for a same-day crown?

Anyone considering a conventional crown can opt for a same-day crown instead. You might need a crown for any of the following reasons:

  • To cover a root canal
  • To hold together a cracked tooth
  • To sit on top of a dental implant or connect a dental bridge
  • To improve the appearance of discolored or irregular teeth
  • To protect a tooth with extensive damage
