Missing a Tooth? CEREC® Same-Day Crowns Can Fix That

Over time, your teeth can become chipped, broken, and discolored. You may try to hide your imperfect teeth by only smiling with your mouth closed, or covering your mouth from time to time. Do you wonder what things would be like if you could feel confident when you smile?

At Bucktown Dental in Wicker Park, Chicago, highly-skilled dentists Dr. Melissa Daza and Dr. Michelle Schwartz provide their patients with top-notch, compassionate dental service that improves their overall oral health and their appearance. Drs. Daza and Schwartz offer a full range of high-quality dental services, from routine dental cleanings to veneers, and even treatment for sleep apnea.

Drs. Daza and Schwartz offer CEREC® Same-Day Crowns to protect damaged and unattractive teeth. These crowns are installed in a single appointment, allowing you to get back to your life with a restored smile, in very little time. 

What are crowns?

A crown is essentially like a little cap that fits over your existing tooth, covering it down to where your gum starts. They can be used to cover up ugly, damaged discolored teeth. Crowns can also be used when a tooth has cracked or is not very strong due to large fillings. 

Crowns are carefully crafted to fit over your tooth perfectly. They can be made from a variety of materials, including acrylic, ceramic, metal, and porcelain.

The crown is bonded to your tooth, and depending on the material, it can be colored to match your natural teeth perfectly. Once the crown is in place, it will look like it has always been there, and it functions just like your natural teeth, allowing you to smile, talk, and eat without any problems. 

What is a CEREC Same-Day Crown?

Typically when you get a crown, you make an appointment with your dentist to have your tooth prepared to receive the crown. You get a temporary crown, which isn’t very comfortable, to wear while you wait for your crown to be made. Then when the crown is ready, you return for another appointment to have your crown installed. 

The CEREC Same-Day Crown procedure is much quicker and simpler than the typical crown installation. During one appointment, Dr. Daza or Dr. Schwartz prepares your tooth for the crown, creates the crown, and installs the crown. It saves so much time and hassle, and you’ll be delighted by the results. 

The CEREC system uses the latest technology, including 3D software that generates a virtual model of your tooth. This model is sent to a milling machine located in our office that manufactures the crown quickly and with impressive accuracy. 

CEREC Same-Day Crowns are made of highly durable and attractive ceramic that matches your natural teeth, so no one can tell that you have a crown on your tooth. Your smile is restored, and you can smile big and confidently, knowing that your teeth look gorgeous.

To learn how CEREC Same-Day Crowns can restore your smile, call our office to set up an appointment with Dr. Daza or Dr. Schwartz. We look forward to seeing you!
