Same-Day Dental Crowns
Same-Day Dental Crowns for Convenient Restoration
A dental crown can cover a tooth that has suffered from damage and decay too extensive to repair with a dental filling. With advanced CEREC technology, we are able to provide same-day crowns at our Lake Charles, LA, office. In a single appointment you can undergo treatment and receive a lifelike, durable restoration for a healthy, natural-looking smile. When you come to our office, you can rest assured that we will provide you with quality care and beautiful results. Dr. Edward J. Hebert and Dr. Scott M. Hannaman have completed extensive training through CEREC and are dedicated to providing the personalized care you deserve.
CEREC technology allows us to design and create your same-day crown within our office, eliminating waiting times and the need for temporaries.
Unique Benefits of Same-Day Crowns
A crown is designed to not only blend with the shade and shape of your smile, but also to restore full function to your tooth, maintaining your bite and alignment. For many patients, we are able to provide lifelike CEREC crowns in a single appointment. These crowns can provide significant benefits.
In addition to more convenient treatment, this advanced technology allows Drs. Hebert and Hannaman to provide more conservative treatment. They can preserve more of your natural tooth structure for more comfortable procedures and stronger teeth. You can also avoid the need to undergo multiple procedures to place and remove temporaries, ensuring your comfort.
The Treatment Process
If you have suffered from trauma or decay, Dr. Hebert or Dr. Hannaman will first remove all damaged tissue and prepare your tooth, creating a stable foundation before creating your dental crown.
Scanning and Designs
The CEREC system uses digital, 3-D scanners to capture highly detailed images of your teeth. Using these scans, our doctors can custom design a restoration made for your exact specifications from a chair-side computer. Drs. Hebert and Hannaman can answer any of your questions and ensure you understand all the details of your treatment.
Once the designs for your crown are complete, they will be sent to our in-house milling unit. We will select a solid block of porcelain that is a near-perfect match to your natural teeth. The milling unit will then carve your restoration from this porcelain in less than 15 minutes.
In a single appointment, our team can restore your oral health and you can leave our office with a strong, complete smile.
Once your crown is finished, Dr. Hannaman or Dr. Hebert will place it over your tooth and make sure that it is comfortable and fits well before bonding it firmly in place. We will also make any adjustments to the grooves or bite as necessary to ensure the best results. In a single appointment, our team can restore your oral health and you can leave our office with a strong, complete smile.
