Who doesn’t love the idea of a one-day crown?
Wouldn’t it be nice if there were no more waiting, no more return visits, and no callbacks because the tooth does not fit correctly? A traditional dental crown can take multiple visits of up to a few weeks.
At New Generation Dentistry, our team of dentists in Mission Viejo is happy to announce that we offer CEREC (Chair-side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) same-day crown services. Our dental crowns look and feel like real teeth. They’re just as strong and durable as other dental crowns, but they’re much faster and more convenient.
What is a Dental Crown?
Everyone knows that crowns are what kings and queens wear, but what are dental crowns? Dental crowns are caps that go on top of teeth that are cracked, worn down, or damaged to improve their appearance. They restore the size, shape, and color of teeth. Crowns can be made of porcelain, ceramic, metal alloy, composite resin, or a combination of these materials.
How Do Dental Crowns Work?
At New Generation Dentistry in Mission Viejo, you can get your crowns done in just one visit! A 3-D image is taken of your tooth and with CAD/CAM technology, a beautiful, durable ceramic crown is created in our office so you won’t have to wait or make any return visits. It’s clean, fast and efficient—and the crown will last for many years with proper care. We can create beautiful, long-lasting ceramic (porcelain) crowns or veneers that look and perform like a natural tooth. It’s the perfect way to restore any tooth and to have a perfect smile again.
Do Dental Crowns Hurt?
Dental crowns do not hurt. Though the procedure to place the crowns on the teeth may not be easy, the dentist will usually use an anesthetic to eliminate any pain. Afterward, there is a possibility of mild soreness or sensitivity around the site of surgery, but it should be temporary.
Dental Care for Crowns
Like real teeth, remember that dental crowns also need to be cared for daily. This includes basic oral hygiene such as brushing, flossing, and getting dental checkups. Regular teeth cleaning is important for maintaining your beautiful new smile!
