CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns Wakefield

Get a High-Quality Restoration in One Day

Has decay or structural damage weakened one or more of your teeth? Dr. Rob Schumacher can help you restore your smile’s strength and appearance with one or more dental crowns. A dental crown is a custom-made restoration that’s placed over a compromised tooth to preserve both the tooth and the root underneath. With a high-quality crown in place, your tooth functions naturally using a solution that blends in with your teeth.

What Are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?

Treatment with traditional crowns typically requires at least two visits: one to prep the patient’s tooth and design the new restoration and a second to attach the patient’s finished restoration. If, for some reason, a temporary crown breaks or falls out in between these two visits, additional care may be necessary.

Treatment with CEREC same-day dental crowns in Wakefield is totally different. Using a CEREC in-office milling unit enables us to provide the same quality service in only one appointment, instead of two or three visits. Over the course of a single appointment, Dr. Schumacher preps your tooth, designs your crown, and places a fully customized restoration. Afterward, you’ll leave our office with a fully restored smile you will love.

The Process of Getting a CEREC Same-Day Dental Crown

Dr. Schumacher may use numbing medication to keep you comfortable while performing any preparatory treatments, like root canal therapy, and when prepping your tooth. Your tooth must be reshaped to allow the customized cap to fit over it. Dr. Schumacuher will then take a digital impression of your mouth, which is used along with CAD/CAM software to create the specifics for your restoration. Dr. Schumacher will send the information to our in-office milling machine, where your restoration is cut from a single block of all-ceramic material. In about one hour, your restoration will be ready to bond to your tooth.

The Benefits of CEREC Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns

CEREC technology has completely transformed the process of getting a dental crown. The revolutionary treatment offers unmatched benefits, including:

  • Looks and Feels Natural: Your restoration will match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth to blend in. It will fit your tooth like a glove.
  • Biocompatible: CEREC crowns don’t contain any metals, providing a biocompatible treatment.
  • Durable: Although they don’t contain any metals, CEREC restorations can last for a decade or longer with the correct care, like brushing and flossing.
