The office of Pompano Family Dentistry proudly offers Same-Day crowns, which are one of the most leading advancements in cosmetic dentistry. We make ceramic crown restorations in a single appointment using 3D technology from CEREC, which enables us to design and fabricate your dental crown quickly and easily.
CEREC is an abbreviation for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. The technology allows us to effectively restore decayed and damaged teeth in a single session using high-quality ceramic that can be made to match the natural color of your teeth. The result is a natural looking crown that is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
The making of a same-day crown using CEREC technology uses a computer, a milling machine and a camera in one instrument. To prepare your custom crown, we first clean the tooth by removing old fillings and decay. After this, a special camera is used to obtain a 3D picture of the tooth, which is much more accurate than traditional models. The 3D model of the tooth is then transferred to the screen of a CEREC computer, where we use CAD/CAM technology (computer-aided design) to create your custom crown restoration. The crown is then bonded to the tooth and we check that its position and placement is proper to ensure a healthy bite. The whole process is completed in about an hour and you leave our office with your new crown in place, without the need for temporaries or second visits.
If you are looking to replace your old restorations or have a damaged tooth that needs a crown, visit Pompano Family Dental and our experts will help you craft a new restoration on the same day.
