Same-Day Crowns

We Make Precision Crowns In Our Lab

One of the most common dental restorations we perform at Carson & Acasio are dental crowns. The good news is that with our sophiscated Cerec crown-making system and technology, we produce our crowns in our own laboratory and "most" often can complete the procedure in the same day. The goal is to help you avoid temporary teeth and make your dental visit convenient.

When made properly, dental crowns can last a lifetime.

What is a dental crown?

It is a cap which can be placed over an existing tooth which can protect a weak or broken tooth from further damage, to replace a filling when most of the tooth has been removed, or is at high risk of being damaged by tooth decay. A dental crown can also be used for cosmetic dentistry purposes, such as covering up a discolored tooth, dental implant, or protect the remains of a tooth where a root canal was recently performed.

Another common use of a dental crown is to be the foundation for a dental bridge ... a device for replacing artificial teeth to cover a gap. The crowns act as a support anchor for the bridge which is placed over the supporting crowns to help restore chewing function.

We design your tooth in 3D.

 

A 3D model of your teeth and your new restoration are immediately created by our dentist or technicians.

Milling a crown

Your new crown is produced.

 

Your dental crown is quickly milled from a ceramic block in our lab using the Cerec machine.
