What are Crown & Bridge / Same Day Crowns?
Crown and bridge / same-day crowns are a restorative dental treatment that can replace missing or damaged teeth. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over a damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. On the other hand, bridges replace one or more missing teeth by using the neighboring teeth as anchors.
Same-day crowns, or CEREC crowns, are made using computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology. Unlike traditional crowns, which require multiple appointments and temporary restorations, same-day crowns can be created and placed in just one appointment.

Here are the most common benefits of receiving treatment from our office:

- Longevity and Durability: Crowns and bridges are stable and long-lasting. With proper care, they can endure for many years.
How Does the Procedure Work?
The first step is a consultation with your dentist. We will examine your teeth and determine the right treatment option for you. If an option is recommended, your dentist will prepare your teeth by removing any decay or damage and shaping them to fit the crown or bridge.
The digital impressions are sent to a computer, which creates a 3D model of your teeth. Using this model, your dentist will design your crown or bridge to fit your teeth perfectly. Once your crown or bridge is ready, your dentist will place it in your mouth and make the necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.
