Same Day Crowns

At Lake Myrtle Dental, Dr. Acosta Utilizes State-of-the-Art Technology

Same-day CEREC crowns are created in the in-house lab. Here’s a summary of the process:

  1. Digital Impression: The process begins with a digital impression of the tooth that needs a crown. Instead of traditional putty impressions, a small intraoral camera captures detailed 3D images of the tooth and surrounding area.
  2. Design Phase: Using advanced CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) software, Dr. Acosta designs the crown virtually. This software allows for precise customization of the crown’s shape, size, and color to ensure a perfect fit and natural appearance.
  3. Millling: Once the design is finalized, the data is sent to the in-house milling unit. This machine precisely carves the crown out of a solid block of ceramic material, such as porcelain, in a matter of minutes.
  4. Finishing Touches: After milling, Dr. Acosta makes any necessary adjustments to the crown to ensure a precise fit and optimal aesthetics. The crown may be polished and glazed to match the shine and translucency of natural teeth.
  5. Placement: With the crown ready, Dr. Acosta can immediately place it onto the prepared tooth. Any final adjustments can be made chairside to ensure proper bite and alignment.
  6. Completion: Once Dr. Acosta is satisfied with the fit and appearance of the crown, it is bonded securely into place using dental cement. The entire process typically takes only a single appointment, allowing patients to leave with a fully restored tooth the same day.

By utilizing CEREC technology and an in-house lab, Dr. Acosta and the team at Lake Myrtle Dental can provide patients with high-quality, custom-fit dental crowns quickly and efficiently, without the need for multiple appointments or temporary restorations.

What to Bring to the Procedure

The procedure is very quick, and patients can make the time go by even faster by bringing a book or digital device along. Patients will have approximately 30-45 minutes of downtime while the model is created, and the crown is fabricated. This time flies by when patients have a book or device to use. They can read or play a game on a device, and then the crown will be ready in no time.
